Xiaomi outclasses the test competition again with the Redmi K30 Ultra
The Redmi K30 Ultra turned out to be an exciting mid-range smartphone in our review, and it hardly offers any real weaknesses considering its price range. The Redmi phone, which is so far only designed for the Chinese market, combines a bright 120 Hz OLED panel with an appealing configuration and a very nice look. In addition, there's the very powerful MediaTek Dimensity 1000+, with which the K30 Ultra sets new standards in the mid-range.
The MediaTek Dimensity 1000+ is a 7 nm SoC that integrates four fast Cortex-A77 cores as well as four power-saving cores (Cortex-A55). The graphics unit consists of a Mali-G77 MP9. In addition, according to MediaTek, the APU 3.0 of the Dimensity 1000+ is supposed to achieve a theoretical peak performance of 4.5 TOPS through its six AI processors.
In our benchmark package, the K30 Ultra places itself at the front line. Especially in the graphics benchmarks, the K30 Ultra often offers twice as high frame rates as the comparison smartphones with the Snapdragon 765G. The latter also has a positive effect in our gaming test, as the FPS values are above average here too. But the Redmi phone also achieves a performance that is higher by a third in the multi-core score of the Geekbench test. All in all, the K30 Ultra is more at the level of a Snapdragon 855 Plus than on the one of its mid-range competition.
