Redmi K30 Punch-hole, Redmi K30 India Launch

Let’s start with the display first. Unlike the Pop-up selfie camera of the Redmi K20 series, the upcoming Redmi K30 will feature a punch-hole display. It is the biggest change on the display front. Rumours suggest that OnePlus 8 series will also come with the Punch-hole instead of the motorized mechanism. So, it seems like smartphone OEMs are now going Samsung way. Redmi K30 will be the first Punch-hole display smartphone by Xiaomi. The display resolution will be FHD+ and it will be an AMOLED display like the predecessor. One massive upgrade we might see is in terms of 90Hz refresh rate panel. Upcoming Realme X2 Pro also features a 90Hz display and Redmi K30 series might also come with a 90Hz display which feels smoother. The screen size is not confirmed but it will be around 6.39 inches and due to the AMOLED display, we will get the In-display fingerprint sensor too.

Identical Design

MediaTek 5G Chipset

The biggest change we might see in the upcoming Redmi K30 is a MediaTek chipset. Instead of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 7-series chipset, the Redmi K30 will be powered by a 5G MediaTek SoC, MediaTek MT6885 to be precise. MediaTek is all set to launch this chipset on 26th November in the summit. It is MediaTek’s first integrated Helio M70 5G SoC. MT6885 is based on the 7nm FinFET architecture and it uses the latest ARM Cortex A77 architecture, Mali-G77 for GPU. Everyone loved the MediaTek G90T gaming-centric chipset on the Redmi Note 8 Pro and so MT6885 5G-centric will be appreciated on the Redmi K30. Additionally, Snapdragon 7-series 5G chipset will launch in the year 2020, so they have to use a MediaTek chipset on the Redmi K30.

SA-NSA Dual Mode 5G

Redmi K30 will also support 5G in both SA (Standalone) and NSA (Non-Standalone) mode. NSA deployments are part of the first rollout of 5G networks while the carriers will begin SA deployment once the initial infrastructure is set up. Having both modes of 5G in one device assures that you will be able to take full advantage of 5G for a longer period of time.


As of now, there is no information available for the camera specifications. Redmi might implement everyone’s favourite 48MP Sony IMX586 or might go for the 64MP Samsung sensor. coupled with a telephoto and Ultrawide angle lens. A macro lens might debut on the Redmi K series. On the front, there will be a dual cutout for the dual front-facing camera, same as the Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus.
