At an event in China today, Redmi announced its latest flagship smartphone, the Redmi K30 Pro 5G. The K30 Pro is the Pro version on the K30 5G which was launched in China a couple of months ago and came to India as the Poco X2 mid-range smartphone.

The K30 Pro 5G features a 6.67 Full-HD+ AMOLED panel with 1200nits of peak brightness, HDR10+, 180Hz touch sampling rate.
On to the optics, the Redmi K30 Pro features a 64MP primary IMX686 sensor, a 13MP wide-angle lens, 5MP macro shooter(50mm), and a 2MP depth sensor quad rear camera setup with LED flash. Over at the front, there is a 20MP Pop-up selfie camera and just like the Redmi K20 series, the borders of the pop-up camera can be lit up.
