Separately, Redmi K30 Ultra smartphone launch seems to be right in the corner as a new addition to the K30 line-up. It could be the first K-series phone to ship with a MediaTek chipset, but the processor name isn’t revealed just yet. The handset was recently spotted in the MIUI 12 build with the codename “cezanne.” The Redmi K30 Ultra will feature a quad-camera setup with a 64MP primary camera and it will have a pop-up camera on the front for selfies and video chats.
