Xiaomi’s turning 10 this year, and while there are few things we’d want to celebrate about this year (continuing plague and all) the company is trying its best to give people something to cheer for. That includes their newly announced, 5G capable Redmi K30 Ultra smartphone.
The Redmi K30 Ultra comes packing MediaTek’s latest Dimensity 1000+ chipset, a new 7nm processor that packs 4x ARM Cortex-A77 running at 2.6GHz and 4x ARM Cortex-A55 running at 2.0GHz. The new phone also comes with a massive 6.77-inch full HD+ AMOLED panel with a fast, 120Hz refresh rate, 240Hz touch response rate as well as HDR10+ capabilities. It’s also one of the few phones released this year to still come packing a pop-up camera module that contains a 20-megapixel selfie camera.
On the rear sits four cameras: a 64-megapixel main shooter, 13-megapixel ultra-wide camera, 5-megapixel macro camera and a 2-megapixel depth sensor. There’s a 4,500mAh battery inside along with 33W fast charging though it doesn’t seem the phone supports wireless fast charging.
From the looks of it the K30 Ultra is a spec’d up K30 Pro, which showed up in the Philippines and other international markets as the POCO F2 Pro. It’s not too far off then to expect the K30 Ultra to pop up as a rebadged POCO device if Xiaomi decides to sell it outside of China.
The phone has a price tag of RMB 1999 (Php 14K) for the 6GB/128GB model, RMB 2199 (Php 15.4K) for the 8GB/128GB model, RMB 2499 (Php 17.5K) for the 8GB/256GB model and RMB 2699 (Php 19K) for the 8GB/512GB model.
