Xiaomi’s Redmi is most loved brand in the market as it offers affordable smartphones with many features in them. This year, the company ventured into flagship territory with this branding, aiming to provide a flagship experience at an affordable price with devices like the Redmi K20 and Redmi K20 Pro, or the Xiaomi Mi 9T and Xiaomi Mi 9T Pro as they are known in Europe. Now, it has planned to launch its upcoming flagship which is Redmi K30.
The Chinese gaint has started realizing teasers about its upcoming smartphone (Redmi K30).
Although the teaser of the Redmi K30 has been kick-started from August 2019 onward, when the Redmi’s General Manager, Mr. Lu Weibing revealed that it will come with 5G support.
During the Redmi 8 launch event in China today, he offered some more details. According to him, the Redmi K30 will be the first 5G smartphone from this Xiaomi sub-brand.
Let’s see what more is revealed about Redmi K30:
It is clear that the Redmi K30 will support 5G, but what’s noteworthy that it will also support 5G in both SA (Standalone) and NSA (Non-Standalone) mode.
Don’t know what is NSA and SA? NSA deployments are part of the first rollout of 5G networks, wherein the 5G network and services will be aided by existing 4G deployment. Once the initial infrastructure is set up, carriers will begin deployment of SA 5G. Having both NSA and SA support in one device will allow the same phone to take advantage of the latter parts of the 5G rollout without needing a new device. While the Redmi K30 is not expected to be the cheapest 5G smartphone, we do expect it to be high value-for-money in line with the brand philosophy.
The Redmi K30 will also come with a dual front camera setup, housed within an elongated pill-shaped display cutout or punch-hole. The release of this device will mean that Xiaomi has released phones with fullscreen displays, with waterdrop notches, and with punch-hole displays, essentially touching upon most current design trends.
We have to wait a bit more to know the exact release time of Redmi K30. But, some rumors said that the Redmi K30 could possibly be announced in early 2020.
