Xiaomi launched the Redmi K30 Pro Zoom Edition months ago as a successor to the positively received Redmi K20 Pro and a cheaper alternative to the Mi 10 Pro. The phone has now made the journey over to DxOMark for an evaluation of its camera performance; the result? Impressive.
The Redmi K30 Pro Zoom Edition earns an overall score of 120, which sees it squeeze right into the top ten, ahead of phones like the OnePlus 8 Pro (119), Samsung Galaxy S20+ (118), and iPhone 11 Pro Max (117). That's an impressive showing, as it's considerably cheaper.
In the still photography section, it records a score of 129—ahead of the S20+ (127) and iPhone 11 Pro Max (124). Interestingly, it essentially matches the Mi Note 10 Pro (130) and its 108 MP sensor. In the video category, the Redmi K30 Pro Zoom Edition makes away with a score of 101, on par with the iPhone 11 Pro Max (102), Galaxy S20+ (100), and the Huawei Mate 30 Pro 5G (102).
The Redmi K30 Pro Zoom Edition sports a 64 MP main camera, an 8 MP 3x telephoto camera, a 13 MP ultra-wide-angle camera, and a 2 MP depth sensor. Not bad for a phone that starts under US$550, some would say.
