Xiaomi went ahead and released two new smartphones that are powered by the latest Snapdragon processors. Meet the new Xiaomi Redmi K30 and K30 5G.

Let’s start with the cream of the crop. The Xiaomi Redmi K30 5G is the very first device to sport the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G chipset. This is a processor that comes with a 5G antenna, without the need for a separate 5G modem.

The main highlight of the Redmi K30 series are their design. We have a quad-camera setup on the back. They are in a vertical orientation inside a circular embossed design. The foursome consists of a 64-megapixel main shooter, an 8-megapixel ultra-wide, 5-megapixel macro, and a depth sensor.

On the front, we have a large 6.67-inch LCD screen with a 120Hz refresh rate and a punch-hole on the top right that houses the 20-megapixel and 2-megapixel front cameras. Sadly, Xiaomi didn’t go with the OLED route, so we have a side-mounted fingerprint scanner on the Xiaomi Redmi K30 5G.

Next stop, we have the standard Xiaomi Redmi K30 model. It’s the same to the 5G model in terms of design and key specs.

There’s the same look on the back with the identical camera setup. It also uses the same screen on the back with the cut-out on the top right of the screen.

The main difference here are in the internals. It uses a non-5G Qualcomm Snapdragon 730G processor with slower 2.2GHz clock speed and an Adreno 618 GPU. The macro camera was also downgraded to 2-megapixels. And to further set it apart to the 5G model, it uses a slightly slower 27W charging tech.
