Redmi K30 Pro is an Android smartphone that arrives on the market in the spring of 2020, three months after the Redmi K30, devices that, name aside, do not share much with ours. Not even aesthetically,

There are particular similarities for a Redmi K30 Pro, which is of a completely different kind: the real successor of that Redmi K20 Pro / Xiaomi Mi 9T Pro, which was a success the previous year. However, it is a high-end smartphone that stands out for its display, chipset, and photographic sector. Below, all the information on Redmi K30 Pro, including technical features, design, software, availability, and prices.

Technical characteristics of Redmi K30 Pro

The keyword is value for money, with a Redmi K30 Pro that has the arduous task of replacing, thus improving the real protagonist of 2019. It tries with a technical data sheet without compromise, with everything you need to compete with the most famous.


For example, the screen is a 6.67-inch Full HD + Samsung AMOLED panel (1080 x 2340 pixels) with support for the HDR10 standard. Among other details, we note a peak brightness of 1,200 nits, TUV certification, a refresh rate that remains at 60 Hz, despite the competition, but the sampling frequency rises to 180 Hz. However, apart from these details, nothing holes or notches break the harmony of its display, since the front camera, from 20 megapixels, is also this year retractable and emerges from the upper frame in just 0.58 seconds.


The rest of the photographic sector of Redmi K30 Pro is made up of a quartet of sensors headed by a Sony IMX686 from 64 megapixels 1 / 1.7 ′′ with both optical and electronic stabilization. Also included are a 13-megapixel wide-angle lens with a 123-degree field of view, a 5-megapixel macro (3 – 10 cm) capable of 2X magnification 2-megapixel sensor for depth of field.


The beating heart of Redmi K30 Pro is called Qualcomm Snapdragon 865, the US company’s flagship chipset for the first half of 2020, a Mobile Platform with a 7-nanometer manufacturing process, a 2.84GHz octa-core CPU, and a GPU Adreno 650. Included are 6 (LPDDR4X) or 8 GB (LPDDR5) of RAM and 128 or 256 GB of internal memory, respectively, UFS 3.0 and UFS 3.1.


Not even concerning sensors and connectivity, Redmi K30 Pro has something to envy to the most famous range. Not only because there is the Snapdragon X55 modem on board to guarantee support for 5G (SA / NSA), but also for the fact that we find points such as Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.1, dual 4G / VoLTE, second frequency GPS, GLONASS, BeiDou, a fingerprint sensor embedded in the display, IR blaster, 3.5 mm audio jack, Hi-Res Audio, and a USB C port, for those who are not satisfied. Finally, the battery is 4,700 mAh and supports fast charging at 33 watts.

Redmi K30 Pro design

After the Redmi K30 chapter, with the Pro version, the Chinese house has preferred to retrace its steps by picking up the solution it prefers for full-screen front surfaces and retractable front camera mechanisms. And precisely for this reason, dimensions aside, it is almost impossible to distinguish Redmi K30 Pro from its excellent predecessor when viewed from the face.


Behind the speech changes a lot. Instead of the camera module developed vertically, the designers have opted for a circular module to contain the four sensors arranged in a particular recess in the shape of an “X.” Redmi also greets the specific colors with the flamed back cover to the advantage of more elegant solutions with the solid color panel while presenting the contrasting power button’s gem in red.


Impeccable as always, the construction, with the usual mix of glass and aluminum, with IP53 certification, guarantees protection against dust and water splashes. The dimensions grow a bit, clear considering the 6.67-inch diagonal of the display. Redmi K30 Pro measures, in fact, 163.3 mm in height, 75.4 mm in width, and 8.9 mm in thickness for a weight of 218 grams.

Redmi K30 Pro software and functions

Android 10 is the version of the green robot mounted by default on Redmi K30 Pro, a smartphone that, being a son of Xiaomi, wears the MIUI 11. It is a decidedly customized and appreciated user interface in the panorama, although far from Android’s stock version. There are many pre-installed applications and functions available that, in this case, find some exciting pluses that concern both the photographic software and other aspects related to performance and gaming.

As for photography, we find the primary camera that sports a technology already seen recently called pixel binning 4 in 1 to capture a more significant amount of details in low light conditions. There is also Super Night Scene 2.0, a gem that allows you to improve even more photos at night with a technology based on HDR and the union of multiple photographs taken at different exposures.

In addition to the TurboWrite technology that promises high performance in terms of writing to the memory (it is possible to transfer 20 GB files in just 40 seconds), on the connectivity side, the 5G Multilink support stands out for simultaneous connections to 2.4 and Wi-Fi networks. 5 GHz and Super Bluetooth, which, combined with the already remarkable performance of Bluetooth 5.1 (coverage up to 240 meters), promises to expand the range further, even reaching 400 meters.


The vibration on Redmi K30 Pro has also been treated, which features a dedicated engine capable of creating over 150 different vibration types to provide a more pleasant gaming experience and user experience.


But it is also engaging the liquid cooling system designed to keep the processor within a specific temperature range. This system has a 3,435 square millimeter heat sink that also ensures high performance in terms of speed and energy efficiency. Therefore, a good ally for Snapdragon 865.

Redmi K30 Pro price and release
