It is possible that Xiaomi might release the K30 5G in December and make it available for sale in January or later.
There’s been a lot of gossiping going around the launch date of the Redmi K30 series. Previously it was reported that the Redmi K30 would launch in 2020. The latest update by Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun confirms that the Redmi K30 5G will be launched in December.
At the Xiaomi Developer Conference (MIDC), Jun said that the Redmi K30 5G will launch in December. Chinese media Anzhuo reported Jun’s concluded that the Redmi K30 5G will launch in December.
This report is contrary to Redmi GM Lu Weibing’s post of the K30 5G launch is happening in 2020. It is also possible that Xiaomi might just unveil the K30 5G in December and make it available for sale in January or later.
Xiaomi has already revealed some specifications of the Redmi K30 5G. Previously, Weibing had announced that Redmi K30 would come with 5G support. The GM revealed that Redmi K30 would support both Standalone mode (SA) and non-standalone (NSA) mode of networks.
NSA will rely on LTE infrastructure for communication between cell towers and servers, resulting in a lower cost of 5G deployment.
The Redmi K30 will not have an AI camera like the Redmi K20 series. Instead, the Redmi flagship would feature a punch-hole display for the selfie camera like the Samsung Galaxy S10+. The upcoming smartphone could be a first by Xiaomi to feature a punch-hole screen.
Weibing had previously confirmed that the Redmi K30 would not be the affordable 5G smartphone, but it will follow Redmi’s pricing policy as well. Though he did not mention anything about the Redmi K30 Pro, we can expect Xiaomi it to launch alongside the K30.
