Rumour has it that Xiaomi is working on another Redmi smartphone, the Redmi K30T. The device should be with us before the end of the year and may bear a striking resemblance to the Mi 10T Pro.

Xiaomi is apparently not done with the Redmi K30 series just yet. While Xiaomi was previously thought to have moved onto the Redmi K40 series, Sparrows News has received word that a Redmi K30T is in the offing. According to Digital Chat Station, this device has been assigned the model number M2007J17C, which has recently been certified in China.

Additionally, Digital Chat Station believes that the M2007J17C will have an ISOCELL HM2 primary camera, Samsung's new 108 MP sensor. The HM2 features nonacell (9:1) pixel binning, up to 3x optical zoom and can record in 4K at 120 FPS. Samsung has built the HM2 on a 1/1.52-inch sensor, which also has a pixel width of 0.7 μm. The Redmi K30T will also offer a refresh rate of 144 Hz. The screen size of the device is unknown, but Digital Chat Station has hinted that 60, 90, 120 or 144 Hz modes will be available to choose from.

However, it seems that the Redmi K30T may be a re-branded version of the Mi 10T series, which has already leaked several times of the last few weeks. The Mi 10T Pro fits the description of a Xiaomi smartphone with a 144 Hz display and a 108 MP primary camera, so the Redmi K30T may be a Chinese-exclusive variant, like the Mi CC9 Pro was to the Mi Note 10 series. If the Mi 10T Pro and Redmi K30T are the same device, then we would expect Xiaomi to equip the latter with a Snapdragon 865 chipset, a punch-hole display and a large battery, too.
