It is likely that the Redmi K30 4G may come to India instead of the 5G version considering the country is still not 5G ready. On the back, Redmi K30 is likely to feature a frosted glass design.

Xiaomi has launched the Redmi K30 4G and 5G in four storage variants - 6GB + 64GB, 6GB + 128GB, 8GB + 128GB, 8GB + 256GB. The higher storage variants with 8GB + 128GB memory and 8GB + 256GB memory are priced at Yuan 1,899 (roughly Rs 19,000) and Yuan 2,199 (roughly Rs 22,000), respectively.

Considering the price and specifications of the now available Redmi K20, the expected price of Redmi K30 might be around the same range of ₹20,000- ₹25,000, as rumours are also suggesting.

The 4G variant of the phone is identical to the Redmi K30 5G in most areas, although there are a few key differences. The phone includes an in-display fingerprint sensor. It features a dual hole-punch design and curved edges. The Redmi K30 4G with 6GB RAM and 64GB of internal storage comes with a price of 1599 yuan that translates to Rs 16,000 approx.

It first seemed that the Kardashian clan had no hard feelings about their oldest sister taking leave of the show sometime soon. Kim also gave her two cents on the situation saying: " Kourtney spends a lot of time off camera".

There are also some welcome features that may seem a little old fashioned for a 2019 smartphone, including a 3.5mm headphone jack and a side fingerprint sensor like on the Honor 20 Pro.

Redmi K30 will be available in four gradient colour options - Red, Blue, White, and Purple. The Redmi K20 came with a 6.39-inch notchless, bezelless AMOLED display, but it was 60Hz. The Redmi K30 runs on Xiaomi's latest MIUI 11 out-of-the-box. But Chinese manufacturer Redmi has now announced a 5G handset that will cost around a quarter as much as these existing phones. The company has already rolled out Android 10 for the Redmi K20 Pro, but it is yet to release the same for the standard version. On the back of the phone is a quad camera array with a 64MP Sony IMX686 primary sensor, an 8MP wide-angle lens, 5MP macro lens, and a 2MP depth sensor.

The phone includes quad cameras on the rear panel and dual image sensors on the front. Here, you get a 20-megapixel front-facing camera, which is backed by artificial intelligence (AI) features. Basically, instead of a 5MP depth sensor, the Redmi K30 4G includes a 2MP image sensor. It includes a 120Hz display panel, 4500mAh battery, and a 64MP Sony IMX686 camera but Redmi has swapped out the Snapdragon 765G chipset for Snapdragon 730G chipset, which is a slightly overclocked and more game-centric version of the Snapdragon 730 in the Redmi K20. The main camera is paired with an 8-megapixel telephoto and a 13-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera. Also, it only supports up to 27W fast-charging as opposed to 30W fast-charging support on the 5G variant. For charging, the Redmi K20 supports 18W fast charging, whereas the new Redmi phone supports 30W fast charger.
