Opinion | The Xiaomi Redmi K30 Pro will be an absolute beast
After months of waiting, Xiaomi has finally unveiled the Redmi K30 Pro. The device, scheduled for release in China on March 24, is more than just a Snapdragon 865 version of the Redmi K30. The Pro features a pop-up selfie camera, for example, negating the need for the dual punch-hole cameras that the Redmi K30 has. Correspondingly, the Redmi K30 Pro will have a different display to that of the regular Redmi K30.
The Redmi K30 Pro may well prove one of the handsets of choice for smartphone gamers this year, too. Xiaomi has already confirmed that the device will feature up to 256 GB of UFS 3.1 storage and 12 GB of LPDDR5 RAM. Additionally, vapour chamber cooling will be onboard to minimise thermal throttling.
Powering the device will be a 4,500 mAh battery, which can be recharged at up to 27 W. Even a headphone jack will be onboard, allowing you to enjoy minimal audio latency while gaming.
The 120 Hz 6.67-inch panel should appeal to gamers, too. Xiaomi is yet to confirm whether this will be an AMOLED or LCD panel, though.
Xiaomi is yet to announce globally availability, either. However, General Manager Lu Weibing has effectively confirmed the existence of the Redmi K30 Pro Zoom Edition, a device that XDA Developers unearthed earlier this month.
In short, the gaming capabilities of the Redmi K30 Pro may rival even those of the Black Shark 3. Bring on March 24.
