With the fast charging, Xiaomi is taking on Realme X2 Pro, which is among the fastest charging smartphone in the Indian market.
The official poster shared by the company earlier reveals that Redmi K30 will offer a quad rear camera setup. It is said to feature a 64-megapixel main camera with a 12-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera, an 8-megapixel telephoto camera, and a depth sensor.
