Xiaomi Redmi K30 Pro 5G models appear on CCC
The Redmi K30 Pro is Xiaomi's worst kept secret at the moment. The Redmi K20 Pro successor has been speculated about since Xiaomi announced the Redmi K30 and Redmi K30 5G last year, with leakers claiming that Pro versions were still on the way. In the meantime, we have possibly seen a Redmi K30 Pro hit Geekbench, along with a Redmi K30 Pro TENAA listing.
Now, @Sudhanshu1414 has published fresh information about the Redmi K30 Pro. The device is already expected to be running a Snapdragon 865, which includes a 5G modem, so we suspect that Xiaomi will end up calling marketing it as the Redmi K30 Pro 5G, for reference. This is speculative for the time being, though.
Spotted by @Sudhanshu1414 on the CCC, commonly referred to as 3C, Xiaomi has registered two 5G handsets. Specifically, the M2001J11C and M2001J11E. Both support 33 W fast charging according to the listing. It remains unclear what distinguishes these models, although we suspect that it will be RAM and storage capacities. Two SKUs seems rather few for a Xiaomi flagship though, with the Chinese company selling four storage combinations of the Redmi K20 Pro, for example.
There has been little talk about a release date of late, with XDA Developers remarking earlier this month that a 1H 2020 would be "fair to expect". MySmartPrice claims that it will be February 28, but there has been no official announcement at the time of writing.
