Towards the end of 2019, Redmi launched the Redmi K30 in the Chinese market but did not reveal the Redmi K30 Pro. The phone is expected to come with Snapdragon 865 processor, 8GB of RAM, and a quad-rear camera setup carrying the 64MP Sony IMX686 primary camera sensor.
Gadgets360 reported that the Redmi K20 Pro will not be discontinued in India. However, we are not sure about the future of Redmi flagship in the country. Since the Redmi K30 was launched in India as a rebranded Poco X2, there’s a chance that the Redmi K30 Pro could actually be launched as the Poco F2 in India.
