Global technology leader Xiaomi today unveiled its latest additions to the Redmi K30 line – the Redmi K30 Pro and Redmi K30 Pro Zoom Edition. The new Redmi flagship smartphones introduce an array of new and powerful configurations, which include the Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 865, LPDDR5, and UFS 3.1. The new lineup aims to better your viewing and photo-taking experience with the Samsung AMOLED full-screen display with a pop-up camera and a rear camera setup with up to 3x optical zoom and dual optical image stabilization (OIS).
Along with the new smartphones, two brand new Redmi ecosystem products were also announced – Redmi AI Speaker Play and Redmi Smart TV MAX 98”. Both of these devices offer revolutionary viewing experiences with exceptional displays, with XiaoAi AI assistant support in the connected smart home era.
A performance beast
The new Redmi K30 Pro packs a whole bunch of performance upgrades, which includes the Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 865, LPDDR5, and UFS 3.1 flash storage, while retaining all of the flagship features from the Redmi K30 line.
Featuring the flagship Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 865 processor, Redmi K30 Pro boasts a 20% performance boost compared to its predecessor. Built on the newest ARM Cortex-A77 microarchitecture and with the 7nm process, it ensures that the CPU operates on high power efficiency, regardless of the core size.
To ensure that it delivers an uncompromised experience, it comes paired with the top-of-the-line LPDDR5 and the latest UFS 3.1 flash storage. It continues to push the limits by supporting Turbo Write technology, bringing the sequential write speed to a maximum 777MB/s. With this, users can now effortlessly copy, compress, and download files at lightning speed. The LPDDR5 RAM achieves a maximum pin speed of 5,500Mbps, while maintaining a lower power consumption compared to the previous generation.
Redmi K30 Pro is made for the gaming enthusiasts in mind, with a massive 3,435mm² vapor chamber (VC) cooling system, a large multi-layer graphite, and 9 built-in temperature sensors. It intelligently predicts and controls its internal temperature, ensuring sustained peak performance even when you are playing games for long hours.
A true, immersive display
The Redmi K30 Pro is made to impress with its ultimate full-screen experience. It features a pop-up selfie camera and ultra-slim bezels to achieve an incredible 92.7% screen-to-body ratio. The pop-up selfie camera pops up almost with no lag time – in mere 0.58 seconds – allowing users to switch between the front and rear camera effortlessly.
While it is equipped with a AMOLED full screen display and a high 5,000,000:1 contrast ratio with 1200-nit peak brightness, it also has built-in light sensors on both the front and rear to precisely detect ambient light conditions. It then calibrates the screen brightness to ensure comfortable viewing experience, even in backlit situations.
The display is also certified by German’s TÜV Rheinland, guaranteeing eye comfort even after prolonged use.
Capture amazing pictures with 3x optical zoom and dual OIS
Redmi K30 Pro takes on a symmetrical quad camera setup, with the main camera using the 1/1.7-inch large Sony IMX686 sensor, allowing a direct output of 9248 x 6944 high-resolution images.
The Redmi K30 Pro Zoom Edition is the first Redmi phone to adopt a 3x optical zoom lens and allows up to 30x digital zoom. The 64MP ultra high-resolution main camera and 3x telephoto lens are both equipped with 4-axis optical image stabilization (OIS), dramatically improving the quality of your photos, especially under low-light conditions.
The Redmi K30 Pro also sports a special macro camera lens – and at present – the only telephoto macro lens in the market. This 5MP telephoto macro lens boasts a 50mm focal length that is comparable to macro lenses found in ordinary cameras and offers 2x magnification macro photography, making it the only “true macro” lens currently available in the smartphone industry.
A complete flagship smartphone experience
The Redmi K30 Pro is designed without the bells and whistles while offering a true, flagship user experience. Despite the complex pop-up camera structure and the “sandwich” motherboard, the sound quality has not been affected. It uses a 1216 linear speaker and a flexible sound cavity, where the latter innovatively replaces the back cavity wall with a flexible diaphragm speaker, effectively increasing the back cavity space by 30% and lowering frequency by 40%.
Made with gaming enthusiasts in mind, the Redmi K30 Pro comes with the 3.5mm headphone jack with High-Res Audio certification. It has also passed stringent tests certifying its gaming core gaming capabilities.
The Redmi flagship also includes all of the fan favorites – the linear motor, infrared remote control, and a subtle notification light feature.
Starting from March 27, Redmi K30 Pro will be available for purchase in three variants: 6GB+128GB, 8GB+128GB, and 8GB+256GB, priced at RMB 2,999, RMB 3,399 and RMB 3,699 respectively.
Redmi K30 Pro Zoom Edition that features a 3x optical zoom and dual OIS will be available in two variants: 8GB+128GB and 8GB+235GB at RMB 3,799 and RMB 3,999 respectively.
