Expected features and specifications
Going by previous leaks, one of the talking points of the Redmi K30 will be its 120Hz display. We are only now seeing devices sporting 90Hz displays, and Xiaomi is taking things to the next level. It will boast a 6.66-inch FHD+ full-screen display courtesy of a punch-hole camera. This time though there will be dual-selfie cameras placed at the top-right corner.
Under the hood is likely to be a Qualcomm Snapdragon 7xx series along with an Adreno 618 GPU. For photography, the device will possibly feature a 60-megapixel primary camera with the new Sony IMX686 sensor. The device will be backed by a battery supporting 30W fast charging technology. For security, there will be a fingerprint sensor placed on the side. Lastly, the device will run MIUI 11 out-of-the-box.
