Redmi K30 Pro is all set to launch next week, on March 3. Ahead of the official announcement Redmi General Manager Lu Weibing confirmed one of the most important specifications of the upcoming Redmi phone. He took to the Chinese microblogging site, Weibo, to reveal that Redmi K30 Pro will be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 processor. Well, this was pretty much expected given the predecessor Redmi K20 Pro also comes with Qualcomm’s last year’s flagship SoC, Snapdragon 855.
The Redmi K30 Pro will launch in China first and could arrive in India and other markets later this year. The company hasn’t official confirmed the India launch of the Redmi K30 Pro. But whenever the smartphone makes it to the country given the specification — SD 865 — the phone will likely compete with the newly launched Realme X50 Pro and iQOO 3. Both the Realme and iQOO phones are also powered by Snapdragon 865 processor.
The first official teaser of the Redmi K30 Pro confirmed a notch-less design. This could mean that the phone might include Redmi K20 Pro like pop-up camera. The teaser also confirmed that the Redmi phone will be available in 5G variant. However, there is no information on whether Redmi will bring a 4G version of the K30 Pro as well mostly dedicated to markets like India where the spectrum isn’t ready for 5G network as of yet.
