Redmi K30 Pro Geekbench listing reveals Snapdragon 865 and 8GB RAM

In December, Xiaomi had unveiled the Redmi K30 4G and Redmi K30 5G smartphones in China. Both phones are now available for purchase in the home market. Just as the Redmi K20 series included the high-end Redmi K20 and flagship Redmi K20 Pro smartphones, the K30 series will also feature a flagship model called Redmi K30 Pro. A listing of the Redmi K30 Pro has now appeared on Geekbench benchmarking platform. The appearance of the listing suggests that the K30 Pro may go official in the coming months in China.

The Geekbench 5 listing list of the Redmi K30 Pro shows that it has scored 903 points in its single-core test and 3,362 points in its multi-core test.  The phone is running Android 10. The base frequency of the Qualcomm chipset that powers the smartphone is 1.80GHz.

Since the Redmi K30 Pro will be more powerful than the Redmi K30 5G that is fuelled by Snapdragon 765G, it is likely that it could feature the Snapdragon 865 flagship processor. The Geekbench 5 listing further reveals that it has 8GB of RAM.

The Snapdragon 865 mobile platform is integrated with X55 5G modem which indicates that the Redmi K30 Pro will carry support for 5G connectivity. At present, there is no information available on the other specs of the Redmi K30 Pro. Considering the fact that the Redmi K20 Pro sported a full-screen display and a pop-up camera like the Redmi K20, it is likely that the Redmi K30 Pro will flaunt a design that is similar to the Redmi K30. Hence, there is a possibility that the Redmi K30 Pro could be feature dual punch-hole selfie cameras and be equipped with an improved quad camera setup.

The Redmi K30 Pro is unlikely to launch in February. The reason for this is because Xiaomi will be launching the Xiaomi Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro flagships in early February. The Mi 10 phones are expected priced between RMB 3,500 (~Rs 36,000) and RMB 5,000 (~Rs 51,550). On the other hand, the Redmi K30 Pro could cost between RMB 3,000 (~Rs 31,000) and RMB 3,500 (~Rs 36,000). Xiaomi will not want the sales of the Mi 10 lineup to be affected by the arrival of the cheaper Redmi K30 Pro flagship phone. It is speculated that the Redmi K30 Pro may break cover in March. There is no word on the arrival of the smartphone in India yet. Speculations suggest that the Redmi K30 could be branded as the POCO F2 in India.
