  • The handset features identical design to the Redmi K30 5G
  • The K30i 5G will go on sale starting June 2nd in China

Xiaomi’s Redmi K30i 5G has been part of leaks and rumours for some time now but the brand has finally gone ahead and made the smartphone official rather quitely in China. The Redmi K30i 5G’s design looks identical to the Redmi K30 5G smartphone, which was launched late last year. Even in terms of specifications, the only noticeable change from last year’s phone is that the Redmi K30i 5G features a 48MP primary camera at the back instead of 64MP sensor, which was seen on the last year’s model. Thankfully, you still get the display with 120Hz refresh rate as the brand has not opted to dial back in this department.
