“Redmi K30 is expected to ship with MediaTek 5G SoC, retain the OLED display, and feature support for SA and NSA dual 5G mode for connectivity”
Redmi K30 is confirmed to be the development for a while now. The brand’s president also confirmed that Redmi K30 will launch with 5G support and have a punch-hole display. The handset is tipped to launch before the end of this year, while the Redmi K30 Pro model is rumoured to launch in 2020. The Redmi K30 has been confirmed to provide support for SA (Standalone) and NSA (Non-Standalone) dual 5G mode for connectivity. Now, a mysterious Xiaomi phone with model number M1911U2E has received approval from the National Radio Authority in China. Unfortunately, it doesn’t reveal any hardware specifications of the device. But since it comes with 5G connectivity, speculations are rife that it could be the Redmi K30.
Redmi K30 specifications, features
Redmi K30’s pill-shaped cutout is tipped to house dual front-facing cameras, similar to the Galaxy S10+. It also expected to be powered by the MediaTek 5G SoC, presumably the Helio M70 5G modem that was announced earlier this year and comes with sub-6GHz 5G speeds earlier this year and will start shipping to manufacturers this quarter. The handset could retain the OLED panel, similar to the Redmi K20 lineup; pack a quad-camera setup at the back; and run Android 10 with MIUI 11 custom skin on top. Design-wise, it’s expected to stick with the glass-metal sandwich and pack ultra-slim-bezels. As for the price, the Redmi K30 is likely to be priced over RMB 2,000 (around Rs 21,000) in China.
It’s possible the Xiaomi M1911U2E could be an entirely different phone as Xiaomi is also said to be working on a Mi MIX smartphone, which again is expected to carry 5G support. So, it’s in your best interest if you consider this new development with a pinch of salt and stay tuned for more information to surface.
