Xiaomi Redmi K30 Pro launched in China: Details here

There's also a third main K30 variant aptly named Redmi K30 Pro Zoom unveiled today with, well, enhanced zooming capabilities powered by an 8MP telephoto lens replacing the 5MP macro sensor of the K30 Pro.

The Redmi K30 Pro Zoom costs the equivalent of around $565 in the world's largest smartphone market with a generous 8GB RAM count and 256 gigs of local digital hoarding room, which seems like a quality/price ratio that very few handsets in the United States could ever rival.

It's quite early days to make that jump, given that the main Xiaomi Mi 10 hasn't launched globally at the time of writing, but with Xiaomi phones getting more and more popular, and with precedent pointing towards it, we wouldn't be surprised to see a rebranded Redmi K30 Pro launching in the future.

Just like its predecessor, the Redmi K30 Pro is a value flagship boasting impressive tech specs and a premium design. Its 8MP ultra-wide-angle lens, meanwhile, lets users capture large group images easily, while its 5MP macro lens and 2MP depth sensor round up the setup for sharp and handsome images. While the other two cameras are not yet detailed by Redmi, we are sure there is an ultra-wide-angle lens and a macro camera. This latter version is referred to as the "Zoom" edition, and it comes with an improved telephoto lens for better optical and hybrid zoom functions.

According to the Pennsylvania Department of Health , Allegheny County now has 40 cases, while there are 479 cases statewide. I've been waiting - we've been waiting for Miami spring break for a while.


We're talking about Redmi, and if that name doesn't sound familiar, you should know the Xiaomi sub-brand crucially contributed to the exceptional global sales numbers of its parent company in the last few years. The telephoto lens in the setup here is replaced with a 5MP telephoto macro lens. For selfies, there is a pop-up camera with a 20-megapixel sensor. It also has Wi-Fi ac, Bluetooth v5.0, USB Type-C port, and 3.5mm audio jack.

On the front, Redmi Note 9S sports a 16MP lens in-display selfie camera, allowing the 9S to have minimum bezels without compromising the camera quality. The rest of the specifications - be it display, internals or battery, remain exactly the same. The 8GB RAM and 128GB storage variant is priced at RMB 3,399 (approximately ₹36,600). The processor is supported by up to 8GB of LPDDR5 RAM.

Redmi K30 Pro has been priced starting at 2,999 yuan (around Rs. 32,300) for the base variant with 6GB RAM and 128GB storage. Both the handsets will come in Moonlight White, Sky Blue, Star Ring Purple, and Space Gray colour options. Redmi hadn't revealed the availability details at the time of writing this story but we will update you once we learn the same. So, what are your thoughts?
