We all waited ten years for Xiaomi to introduce an Ultra phone, and now tw has arrived at the same time. Alongside the Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra I told you about in the previous post came the Xiaomi Redmi K30 Ultra. The K30 Ultra is a MediaTek Dimensity 1000+ powered alternative to the Redmi K30 Pro. It also doubles the refresh rate of the Pro to 120Hz and brings faster 33W wired charging at a more affordable price.
Redmi K30 Ultra Features
The rest of the Xiaomi Redmi K30 Ultra spec sheet is identical to that of the Redmi K30 Pro. This means it comes with a 6.67-inch AMOLED display with a 20MP pop-up camera and a quad rear camera with 64MP primary shooter. The primary camera at the rear is accompanied by a 13MP ultrawide snapper, 5MP macro sensor, and a 2MP depth helper.
The big change in the Xiaomi Redmi K30 Ultra feature is the MediaTek’s flagship Dimensity 1000+ chipset. It is paired with 6/8GB RAM and 129/256GB storage. The phone has a 4500mAh battery, and you also get the required charger inside the box to achieve its maximum 33W rate.
On the software front, the Redmi K30 Ultra is covered by MIUI 12 on top of Android 10. Other notable features include a stereo speaker setup and a linear vibration motor.
