On: February 21, 2020

Xiaomi had launched the Redmi K30 in its home country in December last year. The smartphone was offered in 4G and 5G versions and arrived as the successor to the Redmi K20. However, at that time, the smartphone brand didn’t release the Pro variant of Redmi K30. The device is reportedly slated to launch next month. The Redmi K30 Pro was spotted on Geekbench last month. Now the upcoming smartphone has passed 3C certification in China. The device is listed with model number M2001J11E/M2001J11C. The 3C certification doesn’t reveal much info apart from 33W fast charging for the upcoming K30 Pro. 

The fast-charging capability of the Redmi K30 Pro is 6W higher than the vanilla Redmi K30 that offers 27W fast charging. As per Geekbench listing, the smartphone is expected to be powered by the Snapdragon 865 processor with an integrated X55 modem for 5G connectivity. The device is tipped to pack 8GB LPDDR5 RAM and run Android 10 with MIUI 11 on top. 

The Redmi K30 Pro render reveals a back panel similar to the Redmi K30

Apart from the certification and listings, the alleged renders of the Redmi K30 Pro also surfaced on the web. It revealed a similar back panel design as the standard K30. However, on the front, the device is expected to retain the Redmi K20’s pop-up camera mechanism instead of the pill-shaped punch-hole design. The elevating camera module is seen housing dual selfie sensors. The upcoming Redmi K30 Pro is rumoured to feature an AMOLED display with a 90Hz refresh rate screen and an in-display fingerprint scanner. The smartphone is tipped to retain the standard K30’s 64MP quad-camera setup. It is expected to pack a slightly larger 4,700mAh battery unit compared to 4,500mAh on the K30. 

Earlier this month, Xiaomi discontinued the Redmi K20 Pro in China, which clearly hints at the Redmi K30 Pro’s arrival in the near future. We expect to get more information in the coming days.
