The company has today confirmed by sharing a poster that it has appointed Chinese actor Wang Yibo as the brand ambassador. In the poster, he is seen holding the upcoming Redmi K30 smartphone.
For those who are unaware, Wang Yibo is a Chinese actor and singer and he is also a member of South Korean-Chinese boyband UNIQ. Wang has also received recognition for his role as Lan Wangji in the drama The Untamed and is ranked 71st on Forbes China Celebrity 100 list in 2019.
The Redmi K30 smartphone will come with a punch-hole display which will include a dual front camera inside so that the bezels will be very narrow even though there will not be a notch. Another official teaser shows us the rear camera setup which includes four camera sensors arranged vertically.
The smartphone will come with a 6.6-inch IPS LCD display and will reportedly have 120Hz refresh rate. However, it seems that the 120Hz will be limited to the Pro variant while the standard Redmi K30 will have 60Hz display.
It is expected to have Full HD+ screen resolution of 1080 x 2400 pixels and a 29:9 aspect ratio, while the fingerprint reader will be side-mounted since the display will be LCD. There will also be the Gorilla Glass 5 protection, not the latest Corning’s standard but still sturdy.
The phone will come with support to 5G connectivity, but unlike all the other 5G phones launched until now, the 5G variant will not be powered by a Qualcomm SoC. It will pack the first MediaTek’s 5G chipset with flagship-class specifications — Dimensity 1000 which includes a 5G modem.
Accord ing to rumors, the Redmi K30 will also come in a version with 4G connectivity only packing a less powerful Snapdragon 730G chipset, which is an advanced version of the SoC found on the predecessor Redmi K20.
The quad-camera setup on the back consists Sony IMX686 sensor with a 60-megapixel resolution, a 13-megapixel ultra-wide sensor, an 8-megapixel telephoto lens with optical zoom and a 2-megapixel sensor. On the front side, the device will have a 32-megapixel sensor and an additional ToF sensor for 3D facial recognition.
The device is expected to pack a battery from 4,500mAh battery to 5,000mAh and the company will reportedly offer 27W fast charging technology, not the fastest one but still satisfying. The Redmi K20 smartphone supports 18W fast charging which is even slower.
