Xiaomi Redmi K30S is official with SD865, 144 Hz screen

Yordan, 27 October 2020

Xiaomi executives have been teasing the Redmi K30S, and now the phone is finally official. It comes with a 64 MP main camera, Snapdragon 865 chipset by Qualcomm, and up to 144 Hz refresh rate for the 6.67” screen; if all these specs look familiar, it is because you’re looking at a rebranded Mi 10T for markets where Redmi has strong brand recognition.

The main difference between the Redmi K30S and Mi 10T is the memory combinations - here, we have 8 GB RAM, coupled with either 128 GB or 256 GB storage. The phone lacks a memory card slot, so that’s all the internal memory available.

The front panel might be an LCD, pushing the fingerprint scanner to the side, but there are some intriguing specs - it has a tiny punch hole for the 20 MP selfie camera, a 20:9 tall ratio, and Full HD+ resolution. There is also Gorilla Glass 5 protection both on the front and the back.
