Announcement. Redmi K30 Ultra - budget flagship, honestly

Someone at Redmi seems to really like the combinationthe letters K and the number 30. Because the number of different Redmi K30 is rapidly approaching ten. And that's not counting the modifications that differ in color, amount of memory and other similar little things.

Meet Redmi K30 Ultra. In terms of most characteristics, the device duplicates the Redmi K30 Pro announced in the spring. Only that one was on the top-end Snapdragon 865 chipset and cost ¥ 2,999 (₽31,700, $ 430) for the younger version 6 + 128 GB. And Ultra in the same configuration costs only ¥ 1999 (₽21200, $ 287). What's the catch? Well, yes, apparently, just in the chipset. Here we have “only” MediaTek Dimensity 1000+.

So. What's the problem with MediaTek Dimensity 1000+? Apparently, very few people have seen him live. Although Mobiltelefon had a test of the Vivo iQOO Z1, the first smartphone on this chip. They tortured him to his heart's content and, it seems, were satisfied. That is, yes, weaker than the top Snapdragons, but not by a thousand yuan!

If anyone is interested in parrots, you should know that Dimensity 1000+ is gaining just over half a million points on AnTuTu. In short, no matter how you look at it, the chipset is really very, very serious and powerful.

Memory. 6-8 GB of operational, 128-512 GB of constant. Support for memory cards was not delivered.

The screen is top-end. AMOLED-matrix with a diagonal of 6.77 ″ and a resolution of 1080 × 2400 (389 ppi). The "flagship" refresh rate of 120 Hz is supported, the sensor polling rate is 240 Hz.

The battery is capacious. 4500 mAh. There is fast charging 33W, no wireless charging.

Cameras. Front camera 20 MP. Behind is a standard 64 + 13 + 5 + 2 MP quad kit (main module, wide-angle, tele + macro in one bottle, depth sensor). As usual, we would like to see the first examples of pictures and the first photo duels as soon as possible!

There is an NFC module, 5G support, everything is there. Of the LTE frequencies we are interested in, only Band 20 is missing.

Chinese prices at launch: ¥ 1999 (₽21200, $ 287) for 6 + 128 GB, ¥ 2199 (₽23300, $ 315) for 8 + 128 GB, ¥ 2699 (₽28600, $ 387) for 8 + 512 GB. Looking forward to appearing on Aliexpress.
