As you can see from the images, the Redmi K30 will also be the first smartphone from the company to sport a punch-hole display. The handset will have a cutout on the top right side of the screen to accommodate two selfie cameras. The 5G-enabled phone will have support for SA and NSA networks. That means that the device will use 5G for data and 4G for non-data duties like calling. Unfortunately, the company hasn’t revealed the other specs of the Redmi K30. As for the pricing, Lu Weibing has mentioned that the Redmi K30 will be the most affordable 5G smartphone in the world.
