Redmi K30 Pro features a pop-up selfie camera and a full screen experience. The pop-up selfie camera pops up in 0.58 seconds, allowing users to switch between the front and rear camera effortlessly. While it is equipped with an AMOLED full-screen display and a high 5,000,000:1 contrast ratio with 1200-nit peak brightness, it also has built-in light sensors on both the front and rear to detect ambient light conditions. It is designed to calibrate the screen brightness even in backlit situations.
Redmi K30 Pro takes on a symmetrical quad camera setup, with the main camera using a 1/1.7-inch large Sony IMX686 sensor, allowing a direct output of 9248 x 6944 high-resolution images. The Redmi K30 Pro Zoom Edition is the first Redmi phone to adopt a 3x optical zoom lens and up to 30x digital zoom. The 64MP ultra high-resolution main camera and 3x telephoto lens are both equipped with 4-axis optical image stabilization (OIS), improving the quality of photos, especially under low-light conditions.
The Redmi flagship also includes all of the fan favorites features – the linear motor, infrared remote control, and a subtle notification light feature. Starting from March 27, Redmi K30 Pro will be available for purchase in three variants: 6GB+128GB, 8GB+128GB, and 8GB+256GB, priced at RMB 2,999, RMB 3,399 and RMB 3,699 respectively.
