Redmi K30 Pro with SD865, 64MP Quad Camera Launched in China
After launching its first-ever 5G smartphone towards the top of last year, Redmi took the wraps off its second 5G, also as second flagship, smartphone at a web event in China today. Redmi K30 Pro is finally official and it’s two variants – a typical and a Zoom Edition. This flagship brings variety of firsts to the much-loved Redmi K-series, including OIS support and an IP rating, but there are a couple of minor caveats, a minimum of on paper.
Redmi K30 Pro Zoom Edition: Specs and Features
Speaking of the planning , Redmi is beginning to experiment and move past the normal vertical or horizontal camera placements. It adopted a square camera system with the Note 9 series and now, we’ve a circular camera module on the Redmi K30 Pro. And it’s quite appealing. The minimal gradient design too is likable and guarded with Gorilla Glass 5.
Before we move to the front, there’s another thing that we definitely got to mention. Most Redmi phones today arrive with a p2i nano-coating to guard the devices against accidental spills. But, Redmi K30 Pro is that the “first Redmi smartphone to arrive with an IP rating.” Yeah, Redmi K30 Pro is IP53 dust and water-resistant.
On the front though, Redmi K30 Pro is sticking with my favorite bezel-less, notch-less design that we’ve seen on its predecessor earlier last year. The device features a 6.67-inch Full-HD+ AMOLED display with zero cutouts whatsoever and surprisingly, a 60Hz refresh rate in 2020. We learned this harsh truth last week and it’s a shame that Redmi is dropping the ball on this trend (being adopted by most phone makers) with its newest flagship.
Also, the display board has been sourced from Samsung and boasts a 20:9 ratio, 2340 x 1080p resolution, 180Hz touch rate, 1200nits of peak brightness, and HDR10+ support. Redmi K30 Pro retains the pop-up selfie camera that we saw on its predecessor, with the notification LED feature intact. But, it builds on an equivalent by now allowing you to select custom colors for various situations.
Internals and Software
Being a flagship in 2020 means the Redmi K30 Pro is powered by the Snapdragon 865 chipset, including up to 8GB of LPDDR5 RAM and up to 256GB of UFS 3.1 storage. It supports read and writes accelerates to 777MB/s, which is amazing.
The smartphone also includes a 3435 square-millimeter vapor chamber, along with side multi-layer graphene sheets and a chrome steel hot plate on the within to stay the temperature in restraint.
Redmi K30 Pro runs MIUI 11 supported Android 10, which suggests you get features like Mi Share, system-wide dark mode, Mimoji, and tons more. you’ll read all about the simplest MIUI 11 features right here.
Cameras are one of the key highlights of the Redmi K30 Pro. The circular quad-camera setup, as you’ll see within the image above, is helmed by a 64MP 1/1.7″ Sony IMX686 sensor. it’s an equivalent sensor that we’ve seen on the Poco X2 (or Redmi K30 in China) but with minor upgrades like larger pixel size, 7P lens, and more.
This is including an 8MP zoom lens with 3x optical zoom and 30x digital zoom support, a 13MP (f/2.4) ultra-wide-angle lens with 123-degree FOV, and a 2MP macro lens for capturing some cool close-up shots. a serious highlight of the camera setup onboard is that it comes with dual-OIS support. the first and telephoto lenses are optically stabilized.
Let’s not ditch the 20MP selfie snapper that sits inside the pop-up module. The selfie camera supports up to 120fps and vlog video creation. Other video features include 8K video, bokeh mode, beauty, and more.
Connectivity + Audio
Since Redmi K30 Pro is powered by the Snapdragon 865 SoC, it packs dual-mode 5G (SA/NSA) connectivity support with download accelerates to 2.92Gbps, WiFi 6 with download accelerates to 9.6Gbps and Super Bluetooth 5.1 in tow. What does Super Bluetooth 5.1 has got to offer, you ask? Well, a typical Bluetooth 5.1 device features a range of around 250 meters but Redmi K30 Pro expands it up to 400 meters for improved connectivity.
As for the audio experience, Redmi K30 Pro has Hi-Res Audio certification and will be capable of providing you a high-fidelity experience via the three .5mm headphone jack at the highest.
Finally, Redmi K30 Pro comes equipped with a 4,700mAh battery. this could be enough to supply you an entire day’s use, especially once you don’t have a better refresh rate panel. If it doesn’t, well, Redmi bundles a 33W fast charger within the box. It’s capable of juicing up 50% of the battery in under half-hour, claims Redmi.
Redmi K30 Pro: Specs and Features
The standard Redmi K30 Pro is actually an equivalent because of the Zoom Edition, apart from the quad-camera system on the rear. The zoom lens within the setup here is replaced with a 5MP telephoto macro lens. Yeah, you read that right. A telephoto macro lens, a world first, that allows you to get even closer to your subjects – both while clicking pictures or recording videos.
Another key feature missing within the standard variant is dual-OIS support. None of the lenses would be optically stabilized here. the remainder of the specifications – be it display, internals or battery, remain precisely the same.
