The differences in the phone’s specs are:
- Qualcomm Snapdragon 768 Processor (7nm) as opposed to the Qualcomm Snapdragon 765 (8nm)
- 128GB ROM and 6GB of RAM (the only variant of the phone)
- Mint-green color is exclusive to the racing edition
The Redmi K30 5G is a solid phone that offers 5G bands, 120Hz refresh rate display, a great quad-camera setup, and offers the MIUI ecosystem which is slowly gaining popularity due to the many resemblances it has to iOS. Otherwise, by all other aspects, this new version of the K30 5G is identical to it’s original.
The phone will retail for CNY 2,000 which comes to roughly $282. This is definitely a phone you should get if you’re looking to enter the 5G race without dishing money out for a premium flagship phone.
With the rise of 5G on the horizon, you would be wise to get on the 5G phone bandwagon. Offering faster speeds and more benefits to 4G.
The phone will be ready for sale in China on May 14t; whether the rest of the world will be able to grab this variant is not yet known. Perhaps it will be available globally in a few weeks after the China launch takes place.
With Xiaomi leading the race for flagship-tier phones, they also offer some great phones that offer 5G at a lower price point than another premium OEM. This enables more consumers to use 5G when more antennas are installed across the globe.
