Redmi has confirmed that it will be launching its Redmi K30 Pro flagship smartphone on March 24 in China. The company made the announcement on China’s Weibo, social networking site. In an earlier teaser, the company had stated that the Redmi K30 Pro with 5G support will launch on March 3. However, the phone did not launch on that day, which might have been due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.
In a separate teaser image posted on Weibo by the Redmi official account, we can see the cut-out for a pop-up selfie camera. So it looks like the device will feature a pop-up selfie camera instead of a hole-punch display like the Redmi K30, which was launched back in December. Redmi General Manager, Lu Weibing in a Weibo post has confirmed that the device will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 processor. It is not known when the device will launch in the Indian market, but when it does, it will be a direct competitor to the Realme X50 Pro 5G.

An image of the back panel of the device has been posted on Redmi’s Weibo page, giving us a glimpse of the pop-up selfie camera module cut-out, 3.5mm headphone jack and the IR blaster.
The company has not revealed the Indian launch date of the device. But we can assume that when it comes to India, it might be rebranded and be launched as a Poco device rather than the Redmi K30 Pro. In a similar fashion to the Redmi K30, which was launched as the Poco X2 in India.
According to earlier reports, the device will be backed by a 4,700 mAh battery paired with 33W fast charging support, along with a 64MP quad rear camera system. Apart from this, Xiaomi might also decide to launch its Redmi K30 Pro Zoom Edition, which will have zooming capabilities of up to 50x. Weibing earlier this month stated that he started using a new Redmi smartphone which will be launching soon. This will likely be the Redmi K30 Pro Zoom Edition.
