Redmi K30i, a cheaper lite variant of the Redmi K30 5G has been rumoured for a while now. The phone was recently spotted on TENAA confirming most of its specifications. Now, a finding from MIUI Camera further affirms the existence of this handset.
Earlier this month, an internal document leak revealed Xiaomi’s plan to launch more affordable 5G phones than the Redmi K30 5G. The first device mentioned in it was the Redmi K30i 5G with a 48MP primary camera instead of 64MP from the standard variant. This handset was suggested to release in late April with 1799 Yuan ($255) price tag.
The device has been now spotted in MIUI Camera app by an XDA Developers’ member going by the name of kacskrz. A string from the app not only confirms the name of the phone but also its 48MP primary camera.
As you can see from the string, the device is codenamed ‘Picasso’ just like the regular Redmi K30 5G announced back in December 2019. This finding once again confirms the new Redmi K30i to feature identical specs and design except for a different primary camera sensor.
Anyway, the Redmi brand is yet to tease the launch of this upcoming handset and it is already May now. Since it’s just the same phone with a minor change, the company might simply announce it on Weibo anytime soon.
