Highlights
  • Redmi K30 5G is expected to launch in Mist Purple and Frost White colour options in India
  • The 256GB variant of the smartphone reportedly won’t be launched in the country
  • It is said to come in only 6GB + 64GB, 6GB + 128GB, and 8GB + 128GB variants in India



Xiaomi launched the Redmi K30 and Redmi K30 5G smartphones back in December last year in home country China. Later in February 2020, the Redmi K30 made its way to the India market rebranded as POCO X2. The company is now gearing up to launch the Redmi K30 5G in India as reported by Pricebaba in collaboration with tipster Ishan Agarwal. The report claimed that the smartphone might be launched in Mist Purple and Frost White colour and could be available for purchase in 6GB + 64GB, 6GB + 128GB, and 8GB + 128GB variants in India. Interestingly, Redmi K30 4G was launched in India as POCO X2, so does this mean Xiaomi plans to bring the 5G-capable POCO X2 5G variant in the country? We’ll have to wait and watch.
