The Redmi K30 was something of a disappointment, and Xiaomi will be hoping to make amends with the Redmi K30 Pro. A new report has now shone more light on Redmi's upcoming flagship phone, and things are looking up for expectant fans.
Ricci Rox,

Xiaomi will launch its first Snapdragon 865-powered phones this month—the Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro—which paves the way for the launch of the Redmi K30 Pro in the near future. Initially, rumors claimed the K30 Pro would share most of its spec sheet with the vanilla K30, much like the K20 and K20 Pro did last year, but that not be the case.

According to a new report, the Redmi K30 Pro will feature a bigger battery than the regular Redmi K30. The K30 Pro will see a small jump in battery capacity up to 4700 mAh, from the 4500 mAh unit on the Redmi K30. 

That makes sense, of course. The K30 Pro is expected to be powered by the Snapdragon 865, and it's no secret that the SD865 has no modem integrated into it, leading to a higher power draw. A bigger battery would likely offset that.

Xiaomi, thoughtful as ever, is also expected to offer faster charging on the Redmi K30 Pro. The regular K30 maxes out at 27 W charging, but the K30 Pro has been touted to offer 33 W charging. Last year's Redmi K20 Pro also offered faster charging than its cheaper sibling, 27 W versus 18 W, so this wouldn't be surprising.
