An online presentation of the Redmi novelties is taking place in China these minutes, the most important of which is the flagship smartphone Redmi K30 Pro. The novelty was introduced by the head of the brand, Lu Weibing, and this is his first performance without an audience: the announcement takes place exclusively online for all the known reasons.
The top manager began his presentation with the design of the front cameras: Liu Weibing believes that the flagships of this year will not offer anything better than the front cameras embedded in the display.
In this regard, the Redmi K30 Pro compares favorably, because its front camera is hidden in the case, so before the eyes of the user there is a clean display with a thickness of the side frames of only 1.75 mm. At the same time, the front camera mechanism is more than reliable – it can withstand over 300,000 open / close cycles. The front camera uses a sensor with a resolution of 20 megapixels. Time-lapse shooting and shooting at a speed of 120 fps are also supported.
The main camera of four lenses is inscribed in a round protrusion. According to the developers, this design symbolizes the solar system. As for the color versions of the smartphone, there are four of them: gray, purple, blue and white. To change the appearance, interchangeable covers of different colors will cost $ 7 apiece.
Next, we talked about the features of the layout of the model. The fact is that the 5G module, a retractable front camera, a centered main camera and a 4700 mAh high-capacity battery needed to be somehow fitted into a relatively compact case. In addition, Redmi has previously noted that smartphones with 5G support have 2.7 times more components than conventional models. Therefore, the developers had to work hard on the layout of the motherboard. It is made in the form of a sandwich. Fortunately, there is no fingerprint scanner either on the rear panel or on the sidewall – it is built into the display (an ultra-thin optical sensor is used, not an ultrasonic one).
About the hardware component of Redmi K30 Pro was already told by Wang Teng Thomas (Wang Teng Thomas) – director of new products Xiaomi. The smartphone uses top-end components: Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 platform, LPDDR5 RAM and UFS 3.1 flash memory.
The cooling subsystem is also flagship – with an evaporation chamber (by the way, it acts as a structural element) instead of a conventional heat pipe and nine temperature sensors. Implemented fast charging – with a capacity of 33 watts. With it, the smartphone’s battery is fully charged in just 63 minutes.
Now about the camera. The Redmi K30 Pro uses sensors with a resolution of 64, 20, 13 and 8 megapixels. The main (Sony IMX686) and 8-megapixel telephoto (it is connected to a lens with a focal length of 50 mm and is also used for macro photography) – with optical stabilization. The 13-megapixel sensor is connected to an ultra-wide-angle lens with a viewing angle of 123 °. “Fifty” allows you to take macro pictures almost at the level of a microscope.
Like the older brothers Mi 10, Redmi K30 Pro supports saving images in a more “economical” HEIF format. The smartphone has a special version of Redmi K30 Pro Zoom – it supports 3x optical and 30x hybrid zoom. The maximum video recording resolution is 8K.
Now a little about the display. Redmi K30 Pro is equipped with a “modified” Samsung AMOLED E3 matrix with support for HDR10 +, 800 cd / m2 brightness and 5,000,000: 1 contrast ratio. The screen occupies 92.7% of the front panel area.
Other features of the smartphone include a Bluetooth 5.1 adapter, support for Super Bluetooth and Multilink technologies, a USB-C port, a standard headphone jack and an infrared emitter, and a dual-band GPS receiver.
Prices have already been announced – and they were even very pleasant. The cost of Redmi K30 Pro in the version with 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of flash memory starts at just $ 480. No other model in the world on the Snapdragon 865 can boast such a low price. Moreover, the model has a “standard” version (it is called – Standard Edition) at a price of only $ 425. In its configuration, 6 GB of RAM LPDDR4X and 128 GB of flash memory.
The cost of another version of Redmi K30 Pro with 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of flash memory is $ 525. Cost Redmi K30 Pro Zoom: $ 540 and $ 565. Also today Redmi introduced a new smart speaker with an 8-inch screen and a large TV. And on the web, the unpacking of Redmi K30 Pro has already appeared.
