Screen size doesn't mean anything if the size of the phone is compact. It's wider than the xperia though.
The lowest priced version CNY2999 ($420): it comes with 6GB LPDDR4 / 128GB UFS3.0, not LPDDR5 and UFS3.1.
However, the real world performance impact of LPDDR4 will be minimal because SD865 has not been optimized for LPDDR5. Because LPDDR5 costs so much more than LPDDR4, it is a valid option to use LPDDR4 in order to reduced the price of SD865 based units. If you really care about LPDDR5, you should get '8GB LPDDR5/128GB UFS3.1' for CNY3399 (~$480).
Great pricing! With this pricing, Redmi K30 Pro should outsell Redmi K20 Pro, probably by a margin. For all the members in this Redmi K30 series, both K30-5G and K30-Pro should sell very well, but K30(Non-5G) and K30Pro-Zoom would not sell that well.
Smallish battery for the screen size and 5G, but otherwise all-round fantastic offering at a vary fair price, especially with the headphone jack.
I may still get the Xperia 1 II in the end because I prefer a slightly smaller device and really appreciate Sony's design (and Sony's system should probably be cleaner) but I'm rooting for the Redmi too. I hope it sells well.
Anonymous, 24 Mar 2020Cheap for the base version but what the heck with that increase if want telephoto camera? :/
... moreProblem is the cheap ass realme 6 has a cheap ass lcd screen like the k30 5G (also has high refresh rate)
I prefer a good quality 60hz screen.
Besides most ppl dont care about high refresh screen in a phone
WHY all smartphones are becoming tablets?! Who needs more than 6.4 inches? This phone cannot fit in ANY pocket :(
They should have placed a higher refresh display instead of the macro and depth cameras.
Why pay for them whan you can use that money for something that will actually make a difference.
They are pretty much useless, and I think that they are there only to give the device a more "premium" look.
Bertelli, 24 Mar 2020Damn it, Qualcomm are charging hard for new snapdragonExynos is shiiiiiit.
Kirin is banned.
Snapdragon is the only game in town. Monopoly = Price gouging.
Ummm So the K30 pro doesn't have a Refresh Rate of 120hz? I'm confused.

Companies will put in the box twice expensive adapter but their software will slower down. Hahaha,rly ridiculous conclusion. Also Bbk electronics was always the best in charging speed.,and many of their phones can charge from 0 to 100 in 30-35 minutes.
Anonymous, 24 Mar 2020yes they doPlease post source.
It says 8mp telephoto on the very site you're commenting on.
jakov1, 24 Mar 2020No they don'tyes they do
What's up with the bad refresh rate?
No OIS on the regular non zoom version. Basically, the non zoom version has the same camera setup as the k30 5g which is slightly disappointing camera wise but I suppose they had to cut costs somewhere
Anonymous, 24 Mar 2020Mi 10 Pro with 65W charger doesn't take same as S20 ultra.

The first one I opened had it fully charged at 1:05, a minute faster than the S20 Ultra, but now I've watched a lot of others and one dude got 45 minutes with the phone turned on, one got 47 minutes turned off and one got 52 with the screen on. There was also a case of Realme X2 Pro doing 27 mins with the screen on and 30 minutes turned off.
My memory failed me because I've watched all those videos before and had no recollection of the numbers, but my final conclusion is that: a) those "tests" are not reliable, and b) Mi 10 Pro does charge faster than the S20 Ultra.
Also, it does 50w, it just has a 65w brick, another mistake by me. That makes it 25% faster per mAh, not 2x as the wattage would suggest.
These are excellent phones with excellent price. Congrats xiaomi you have a winner these phones will outsell every other phones in its price range.
bit of surprised gsmarena ddnt have a review right after a launch. corona strikes
