On the front of the device is a dual-camera setup housed in a punch-hole oval-shaped cutout. The primary selfie camera is a 20MP lens assisted by a 2MP sensor for depth sensing. On photography, the Redmi K30 boasts the AI features, which is a common feature in smartphones these days.
Like its predecessor, you also get a USB type C port with fast charging support. For the Redmi K30, it supports up to 30W fast charging technology that will help fill the massive 4500mAh battery.
The phone ships with MIUI 11 based on Android 10 out of the box.
In China, the Redmi K30 5G is priced at 1,999 Yuan (approx. $284.05) at the lowest for the 6GB RAM and 64GB storage model. The 6GB + 128GB model goes for 2,299 Yuan (~$327).
