Xiaomi’s Redmi launched the Redmi K30 5G smartphone a few months back in China. It was one of the cheapest smartphones to offer 5G connectivity and became very popular in China. Sadly, the smartphone didn’t arrive globally and the only 4G variant was launched. Now, reports suggest that Xiaomi is working on a 5G smartphone for its global market which will be called the Redmi K30i. What’s this ‘i’ might be worrying everyone, well, let’s take a look at the details.
Redmi K30i Is Just The Global Variant Of Redmi K30 5G With A Downgrade
The Redmi K30 5G came at mid-range pricing and had Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G chipset. The SoC itself is 5G compatible and therefore, the device had full-fledged 5G support. Well, now, the company wants to launch its 5G handset outside China but it might cost more, therefore, the company is said to cut some corners.
Redmi can’t change the chipset and so it will downgrade the cameras on the device. The Redmi K30i smartphone will come with a 48-megapixel quad-camera setup instead of 64-megapixel on the K30 5G Chinese variant.
This means that the Redmi K30i will be the global variant of RedmiK30 5G with downscaled cameras. The chipset will remain the same as the K30 5G.
Redmi might as well downgrade some other specs, but the details are currently very scarce. we expect to see a new batch of leaks in the coming weeks before we comment on the device.
