On 11.5. 2020 Redmi discreetly introduced a smartphone in its home China, the main essence of which is probably increased performance compared to the basic model Redmi K30.
The name of the new smartphone is Redmi K30 5G Pro Extreme Edition and we can already look forward to an even more suppressed price-performance ratio based on the available specifications.
Significantly improved performance
The newly introduced Redmi K30 5G Extreme Edition is based on the basic Redmi K30 model. The classic K30 combined premium parameters and a great price, but this smartphone pushes the boundaries even further.
Powerful processor and 120 Hz display
The main "driver" of this device is a brand new eight-core processor from the Qualcomm workshop, Snapdragon 768G with support for 5G networks.
This processor is so far the most powerful of the 7xx series and was used for the first time in this smartphone. The introduction of the smartphone also brought the introduction of a new processor.
The maximum clock speed of the processor is 2,8 GHz and together with Adreno 620 graphics chip offers up to a 15% increase in performance over the Redmi K30. It is currently available in a single memory configuration, with 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal storage.
There are no improvements on the display side - the display panel is exactly the same on these smartphones.
This is a large 6,67 ″ Full HD + (1080 x 2400 pixels) IPS LCD panel that has refresh rate 120 Hz and it also lacks HDR 10+ support.
A great advantage of the Redmi K30 series is the excellent ratio of display to body, which reaches values of up to 84,8%. Thanks to these parameters, it is a first-class display panel in this price category.
Four photo sensors
On the back of the smartphone, there are four cameras housed in a vertical traffic light, which are circularly lined with a matte surface similar to the Redmi K30.
The main task was given to the well-known 64 MPx sensor Sony IMX686, which has proven itself in many devices. It is complemented by an 8 MPx wide-angle lens, 5 MPx macro and a 2 MPx depth-of-field sensor.
In the double cutout on the front there is a 20 MPx sensor and next to it there is again a 2 MPx sensor for calculating the depth of field. In terms of cameras, this is a very successful piece.
Battery and charging
Following in the footsteps of the Redmi K30, this smartphone was also equipped with a large 4500 mAh battery, which will ensure sufficient energy even during demanding use throughout the day.
The implemented battery can be charged with a maximum power of up to 30 W, which is a welcome improvement over the 27 W on the Redmi K30.
Among other specifications, the Redmi K30 5G Extreme Edition smartphone has a 5G connection, NFC, Bluetooth 5.0, 3,5 mm jack with Hi-Res support, GPS and also 5G Multilink technology, thanks to which the smartphone can be connected to up to 3 networks at once.
Price and availability
The novelty in the form of the Redmi K30 5G Extreme Edition smartphone is currently available in its home China for a great price of only 1999 yuan, which after conversion makes €257 / USD 280.
The price with this smartphone is more than favorable.
