In August this year, Redmi CEO Lu Weibing revealed that the Redmi K30 will bring next-gen 5G connectivity to the smartphone. Launch details are not available at the moment, but new information has surfaced. Here is all you need to know.

Xiaomi Redmi K30 display detailed

At the launch presentation of Redmi 8 in China, Weibing revealed the first look of the next-gen Redmi K-series smartphone. Along with 5G connectivity, the smartphone will feature a punch-hole display. It will be the first Xiaomi smartphone to come with dual front cameras, and the setup looks similar to what we have seen on the Samsung Galaxy S10+. This also means that the next K-series smartphone will not feature a pop-up selfie camera like the Redmi K20.

In the presentation, Weibing also revealed that the K30 will come with dual 5G support. It will offer both SA (Standalone mode) and NSA (non-standalone) networking. The NSA networking means it will rely on existing LTE infrastructure for tasks such as communication between servers and cell towers. It will not only allow for better connectivity, decrease costs of 5G deployment in new areas.

Talking about the pricing, Weibing mentioned that the Redmi K30 may not be the most affordable 5G smartphone. However, it will follow the cost-effective nature of Xiaomi. It will reportedly ship with Qualcomm 7250 SoC which supports dual-mode 5G (via GSMArena)
