Redmi K30 Pro has many faces

Flagship Redmi K30 Pro did not hide fromprying eyes before the official announcement, so that his appearance and the power of his filling did not come as a surprise. The Redmi brand is once again presented with a flagship that is clearly ahead of all other advanced solutions in terms of price and coolness specifications. The youngest of the modifications received a price tag of 2999 yuan (₽34100, $ 421) - and this is a smartphone based on the top Snapdragon 865 chipset.

Of course, there was some confusion. Being a solution that is designed to satisfy needs without exceeding the capabilities of as many potential buyers as possible, Redmi K30 Pro is very diverse. To begin with, there are two models: Redmi K30 Pro and Redmi K30 Pro Zoom. The differences for the most part relate to the photo part.

The base model - Redmi K30 Pro - in turndivided into three modifications. At first glance, these are just differences in the amount of memory, from the second you can catch more subtle nuances. In the youngest version, not the fastest memory is used: operational LPDDR4 - 6 GB and UFS3.0 drive - 128 GB. But the price is 2999 yuan (₽34100, $ 421) in total.

They didn’t save on two other types anymore, they cost 8 GB of RAM LPDDR5 and ROM UFS3.1 - 128 or 256 GB.

Varieties and prices of Redmi K30 Pro:

6 GB LPDDR4 + 128 GB UFS3.0 - 2999 yuan (₽34100, $ 421)
8 GB LPDDR5 + 128 GB UFS3.1 - 3399 yuan (₽38600, $ 478)
8 GB LPDDR5 + 256 GB UFS3.1 - 3699 yuan (₽42000, $ 520)

The Snapdragon 865 chipset is relevant for all optionsboth models. The same applies to a cooling system that can dissipate heat in all directions, a large 4700 mAh battery with support for fast charging of 33 W and a hefty screen with a Samsung AMOLED matrix. The screen features a crazy peak brightness of 1200 nits, ultra-high contrast, support for HDR10 +, a sensor readout frequency of 180 Hz and compliance with TÜV Rheinland certification. The display protects the Gorilla Glass 5. The casing is generally IP54 certified.

The front camera Redmi K30 Pro has a retractable design, which allowed not to leak the screen. There is a 20-megapixel resolution, HDR support and the ability to shoot video 1080p @ 30fps.

The camera unit on the rear panel caused some discrepancies.

In the case of the Redmi K30 Pro, it includes:

  • 64 MP Sony IMX686 (sensor size 1 / 1.70 ″, pixel size 1.60μm), a lens with six lenses in design and an optical stabilization system.
  • 5 MP, telephoto, focal length is equivalent to 50 mm, it is said about it that it is able to focus from 3-7 cm, which indicates the possibility of using the camera as a macro.
  • 13 MP, wide-angle, shooting angle 123 °.
  • 2 MP, depth sensor for creating bokeh in portraits, large pixels - 1.75μm.

Sounds pretty serious, in theory it shouldAssume extensive opportunities. Among other things, promised support for shooting 8K video. Also declared is support for HEIF, a highly efficient image file format that can significantly save memory space compared to standard JPG.

And then it's time to think about the Redmi K30 Pro Zoom and try to figure out the differences.

With the memory capacity, everything is simple: only 8 GB of RAM, 128 or 256 GB of storage, only the fastest memory, LPDDR5 and UFS3.1, respectively. That is, there is no minimum set, this is logical.

It’s more complicated with cameras.

Redmi K30 Pro Zoom Plus Kit Includes Availability30x zoom capabilities. Digital, of course, but there is also an optical one, 3x. This does not mean the presence of a camera with periscope optics, but there are still some changes in the design of the lenses in comparison with the Redmi K30 Pro.

  • the same 64 MP Sony IMX686 received a different lens - with seven lenses in design and an optical stabilization system.
  • the telephoto became 8-megapixel and acquired its own optical stabilization system, nothing is said about macro capabilities.
  • 13 MP, wide-angle, shooting angle 123 ° - remained the same.
  • 2 MP, depth sensor for creating bokeh in portraits, large pixels - 1.75μm - remained the same.

The front camera has not changed.


Redmi K30 Pro Zoom cameras (in Chinese, of course, but generally understandable)

Thus, there is a difference between the Redmi K30 Pro Zoom and the Redmi K30 Pro, but how much will it be noticeable to the user? Well, the zoom is a little more powerful, but Redmi K30 Pro will be able to bring it closer somehow.

Both models support 5G, WiFi6, Bluetooth 5.1, the advanced technology of interaction with satellite navigation and in general as a whole demonstrate a complete readiness to meet the highest of modern requirements for mobile devices.

Support for NFC is also there. The fingerprint scanner is built into the screen. The infrared port is not forgotten.

A special hello to the owners of their favorite wired headphones - 3.5 mm audio jacks.

And they are beautiful.
