Redmi K30 launch event plans
Now, its parent Xiaomi already sells products in these categories. But Redmi has been exploring new vistas of expansion rapidly since it split earlier this year. Coming to the details, the Redmi AC2100 router, teasers have hinted that it will sport six antennas (perhaps Wi-Fi 6). One of the latest teasers have also confirmed support for 2.4GHz and 5GHz with two separate chips. The router will also feature two PA + LNA (Power Amplifier and Low-Noise Amplifiers) chips to maximize the efficiency of the new router. Other than that, not much has been said officially about the product.
Speaking about the Xiao AI Play, Redmi will very likely use Xiao AI. The speaker is likely to come in a rectangular form factor. It will not only assist with answering queries, but also music play from multiple platforms, as far as its chief operations are concerned. Redmi has used a 1.75-inch high-quality speaker unit and a 350cc sound chamber for a great audio output.
Redmi has also teased a new RedmiBook that will launch at the same event. Recently, the company launched two new notebooks in the RedmiBook series. These include RedmiBook 14 Ryzen Edition and RedmiBook 14 Enhanced Edition. Similarly, RedmiBook 13 are also expected in a new 13-inch display variants.
