For Xiaomi, the strong demand for the Redmi K30 series should come as a welcome relief. The company is struggling in its home market and has dropped to fifth in terms of market share. According to Counterpoint Research, Xiaomi had a market share of 9 percent at the end of the fourth quarter of 2019. In comparison, Huawei and Vivo recorded market share of 35 percent and 17 percent respectively. With demand for 5G growing in China, the Redmi K30 series is a value purchase option in Xiaomi’s home market.
As mentioned before, the Redmi K30 is available in 4G and 5G variants in China. The smartphone features a 6.67-inch LCD display with 120Hz refresh rate and HDR10 support.
