Redmi K30, the successor to the popular Redmi K20 smartphone, will come with 5G support, the brand’s general manager has confirmed. Redmi’s general manager, Lu Weibing, took to Weibo, the popular Chinese microblogging website, to confirm the upcoming handset’s name and also added that the Redmi K30 smartphone will feature support for 5G as well.
