It looks like 2020 is going to be a big year for 5G smartphones as several brands are eying to take this category of phones to the mainstream. We have already seen several reports regarding upcoming 5G smartphones awaiting their launch. One of the upcoming devices is confirmed to be the Redmi K30 5G.


Well, the confirmation regarding Redmi K30 5G comes from Lu Weibing, the Vice President of Xiaomi via Weibo. He has posted about the China Mobile Worldwide Partner Conference and a brief history of Redmi with the partner.

He ended stating, "2020, Redmi 5G is a pioneer. K30 see!", as per the translation. The post also has a chart showing the Redmi smartphone among rivals available in China. Notably, one of the recent reports suggested that the Redmi K30 could be launched this year while the K30 Pro could be launched next year.

This post from the Xiaomi executive confirms that the Redmi K30 5G is in the making and will be launched next year. The smartphone is believed to arrive with dual 5G standby support featuring a Qualcomm 7250 chipset to enable 5G connectivity. From the previous leaks, this smartphone is expected to feature dual-selfie cameras within a punch-hole cutout on the display.

This is contradictory to the previous report, which hinted that the Redmi K30 5G will use MediaTek chipset. A tipster stated that the device will likely use a new announced MediaTek processor featuring an integrated 5G modem.

Though most Xiaomi devices do not feature MediaTek SoCs, the Redmi Note 8 Pro was the first one to feature the Helio G90T, a gaming-centric processor. This makes us believe that there is a chance to see a MediaTek processor powering the Redmi K30 5G. However, an official confirmation regarding its processor and other details are awaited.


What We Think About Redmi K30 5G

Being the sequel to the Redmi K20 series, we can expect the Redmi K30 5G to be priced reasonably as compared to other flagship models with 5G connectivity. Speculations suggest that it could be priced under 3000 yuan (approx. Rs. 30,000), which will make the most affordable 5G smartphone. Moreover, this upcoming smartphone will be the first 5G smartphone from Redmi.
