Affordable 5G phones coming soon?
Together with the China launch of the Redmi 8 and Redmi 8A, General Manager Lu Weibing confirmed that the Redmi K30 is in the works. From his confirmation, Weibing hinted that the Redmi K30 will support 5G stand-alone and non-stand alone (SA/NSA) sub-6GHz networks. The Redmi K30 is expected to be one of the first phones to use Qualcomm’s mid-range 700-series 5G chips.
Aside from 5G support, Weibing confirmed that the Redmi K30 will be using a punch-hole display instead of a pop-up module on the Redmi K20 series. The teaser slide hinted of a hole that will house two front cameras just like Samsung’s Galaxy S10+.
Other expected features include a next-generation in-display fingerprint scanner and bigger battery.
