Redmi, a subsidiary of Xiaomi, usually invests in mobile phones with more affordable prices, but also launches more expensive smartphones. This should be the case for the Redmi K30, the first of the brand to feature 5G and which had more details revealed on Monday (14).
At the launch event for Redmi 8 and 8A, Redmi’s manager, Lu Weibing, announced that the Redmi K30 will support 5G in Non-Standalone standards, which depends on the existing 4G structure, and Standalone, which can operate autonomously.
The smartphone will also feature a dual front camera and therefore will abandon the retractable camera used on the Redmi K20 (launched internationally as Xiaomi Mi 9T). The new model will have a hole in the screen similar to that of the Galaxy S10 +.
Redmi did not reveal any other information about the device’s design and technical data sheet. However, it is possible to speculate from the Redmi K20, launched with a 20 megapixel front camera, a triple rear camera with a 48 megapixel sensor and a 4,000 mAh battery.
The brand also did not say when it will be officially presented, but the trend is that this will happen in the first half of 2020. The Redmi K20 was launched in June and, in July, was even approved by Anatel. The announcement of the Xiaomi Mi 9, meanwhile, occurred in February.
