Xiaomi launched Redmi K30 Ultra at its 10th-anniversary event in August alongside Mi 10 Ultra, Mi TV LUX OLED Transparent Edition, and Ninebot GoKart Pro Lamborghini Edition. We reviewed both these smartphones but the Redmi handset did not perform as well as we expected it to do. Thankfully, the company is addressing some of the issues we mentioned in our review via the latest system update.
The Redmi K30 Ultra is limited to China and hence the new update for the device comes in a single flavor with build number V220.127.116.11.QJNCNXM (via ITHome). It weighs 307MB in size and apart from bringing optimizations, it also bumps up the security patch level to August 2020.
According to the changelog, the latest update for Redmi K30 Ultra optimizes lots of things, most importantly fluency, video playback and HDR brightness. Although we did not face any issue with the latter, the former two were lacklustre on this devicepoor in terms of UI fluency.
Hopefully, the new firmware fixes them as the changelog claims. That’s not all, the new OTA update also brings optimizations for the fingerprint sensor, charging, and gaming. It also brings fix for the face unlock issue faced by certain users.
The Redmi K30 Ultra is an incredible value for money smartphone, at least in terms of specifications. Unfortunately, Xiaomi has no plans to launch it globally.
