Lu Weibing has now confirmed that Xiaomi is ending production of the Redmi K30 Ultra. The Redmi K30 Ultra was launched alongside the Mi 10 Ultra and was also never sold outside China, despite fans asking for a global release. The Redmi K40 will succeed it and there are reports it could sport the Dimensity 1200.

Xiaomi debuted the Redmi K30 Ultra back in August last year. Just like with the Mi 10 Ultra, however, the phone ended up never leaving Xiaomi's home market of China. The company has now also announced that it is ending production for the device.

In a post on Weibo, Redmi General Manager Lu Weibing confirmed that the brand is now bidding farewell to the Redmi K30 Ultra. That's about expected, as Xiaomi also announced the end of production for the Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro a while ago. Like with the Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro, Xiaomi is already lining up a successor to the Redmi K30 Ultra, in the form of the Redmi K40 series.

Not much is confirmed about the Redmi K40 lineup at this point. We know that a phone in the series will be powered by the Snapdragon 888. That will likely be the Redmi K40 Pro. But what about the regular Redmi K40? Well, word on the grapevine claims it could debut with the upcoming MediaTek Dimensity 1200, directly taking up the mandate from the Redmi K30 Ultra and its Dimensity 1000+. Or that could be the Redmi K40 Ultra. There's no official confirmation for any of this, though, so we'll all just have to wait and see.

Buy the Redmi Note 9 Pro on Amazon.

I like tech, simple as. Half the time, you can catch me writing snarky sales copy. The rest of the time, I'm either keeping readers abreast with the latest happenings in the mobile tech world or watching football. I worked as both a journo and freelance content writer for a couple of years before joining the Notebookcheck team in 2017. Feel free to shoot me some questions on Twitter or Reddit if it so tickles thine fancy.
