The Redmi K30i is also tipped to come with a 48-megapixel quad camera setup on the back. The leaked render of the device suggests it won’t be much different from the Redmi K30 in terms of design. However, it will have a single punch-hole selfie camera. We might also see the Redmi 10X launch as a budget 4G smartphone in the coming weeks. The leaks have already revealed that it will be a rebranded version of the Redmi Note 9 that launched in Europe recently. This will come with up to 6GB of RAM, MediaTek Helio G70 SoC and quad rear cameras.
