During the event just ended, Redmi unveiled both K30 4G and K30 5G. Between the two terminals, besides the obvious difference in connectivity, there are really very few differences: the SoC (therefore CPU and GPU) and fast charging. Let’s look at the main technical specifications and prices in China of Redmi K30 5G, then those of the 4G version announced during the official presentation.
The Redmi K30 4G and K30 5G are jointly installed on a 6.67-inch FHD + IPS LCD display, 20: 9 aspect ratio and 120Hz refresh rate which brings incredibly high fluency not only in games but also in menus or in the browser.

When it comes to performance, the Redmi K30 5G is powered by the Snapdragon 765G, which was introduced last week and came out of the 7-nm production process. This high-performance gaming processor connects the phone effectively to 5G networks with its integrated 5G modem design.
