After a long wait, Redmi has officially unveiled Redmi K30 Pro as its newest 5G flagship in China. It has been released after three months of unveiling the standard Redmi K30 5G. Since the Pro version is a true flagship device, fans will get better hardware with high-end features for a slightly increased pricing. There is also a Redmi K30 Pro Zoom Edition which is exactly the same as the normal "Pro" except for the presence of a telephoto sensor for zoom capabilities.
The Redmi K30 Pro sports a 6.67-inch Full HD+ (2400 x 1080 pixels) AMOLED display with HDR10+ support, 100% DCI-P3 wide color gamut, and Corning Gorilla Glass 5. Under the hood, it has the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 processor paired with 6GB and 8GB of LPDDR5 RAM. There are 128GB and 256GB UFS 3.0 onboard storage options with no words on microSD card expansion.
In the camera department, you will get a quad rear camera setup featuring a 64-megapixel Sony IMX686 primary sensor with f/1.69 aperture, a 5-megapixel macro sensor, a 13-megapixel ultra-wide-angle sensor with 123-degree FoV, and a 2-megapixel depth sensor. The Zoom Edition has the same setup but the macro sensor is replaced by an 8-megapixel telephoto sensor with 3X optical zoom and 30X digital zoom.
Both variants have the same 20-megapixel front pop-up camera with 120fps slow-motion video support. The whole package is powered by a 4,700mAh battery with 33W fast charging. Other features include an in-display fingerprint scanner, Hi-Fi audio, 3.5mm headphone jack, IP53 water-resistance, Bluetooth 5.1, and USB Type-C port.
