Redmi K30 actually has two holes in the display to house dual selfie cameras

Recently, Xiaomi’s sub-brand Redmi unveiled the Redmi K30 smartphone in its home market of China. The phone arrived as a successor to the Redmi K20 that was announced earlier this year. The Redmi K30 brought a handful of upgrades over its predecessor like a more powerful processor, two selfie cameras on the front, four primary snappers on the back, 4G and 5G variants, and a beefier battery with a whopping 30W fast charging support. While the Redmi K20 featured a pop-up selfie camera mechanism, the Redmi K30 flaunts a punch-hole display to house the selfie snappers. During the launch event and in official images, Redmi showed the Redmi K30 with a pill-shaped dual selfie camera module. However, the hands-on videos of the smartphone circulating on Weibo suggest something different. 

As seen in the hands-on images and video above, the Redmi K30 actually has two separate holes, and each of them has a single selfie camera. There’s a considerable gap between the two cameras. The software of the smartphone comes with a feature, which lets you hide the space between the sensors. Users have a choice to show two holes on the screen, a pill-shaped hole, or completely hide the punch-hole design by placing a black bar in the notification area. So, its quite clear that when showing the smartphone during the launch event, the company used the pill-shaped hole option in the settings.

To recall the specs, the Redmi K30 features a 6.67-inch full HD+ IPS LCD display with a tall aspect ratio of 20:9 and an impressive screen refresh rate of 120Hz.

The other highlights of the handset include a 64MP quad-camera setup on the back, a 20MP dual-camera module on the front, a side-mounted fingerprint sensor, and a massive 4,500mAh battery with fast charging support. The phone is available in China at the starting price of around Rs 16,000.
