Xiaomi celebrates its tenth anniversary with many carats, and the Mi 10 Ultra will also be accompanied by this Redmi K30 Ultra designed to reign among the more ‘premium’ mid-range

Xiaomi wanted to celebrate its tenth anniversary in style, and their two new smartphones point to the top headed by the new Mi 10 Ultra, already by right the most advanced Xiaomi in its history.

In this case the attack is on the waterline of the premium mid-range, with a new Redmi K30 Ultra that will accompany the Redmi K30, K30 5G and Redmi K30 Pro in the family as the most compensated smartphones in price and performance from the entire Android catalog.

Xiaomi’s ‘premium’ mid-range is also Ultra for its 10th anniversary

The Chinese giant has also presented a TV with a transparent OLED panel, but that is another story because here it has brought us a smartphone that has the new MediaTek Dimensity 1000+ chipset at a price that is between 245 and 330 euros in China at the current exchange rate.

The ‘Ultra’ phones also come to the Xiaomi family, and if the Mi 10 Ultra is already the most advanced smartphone in its history, this Redmi K30 Ultra will also undoubtedly be the most recommended mobile of all this 2020 course for price and performance

A familiar design with clean front and quad rear camera in a circular module

Xiaomi evolves the idea and the result is spectacular

Starting from the base of the already known Redmi K30, Xiaomi evolves its minimalist lines to obtain a very attractive finish that exudes simplicity and elegance on all four sides.

The circular module of the cameras together with the centered flash gives it an interesting symmetry to the rear, where stridencies in patterns or gradients have not been sought. As for the front, it is still very clean, betting on a 20 MP motorized pop-up camera that leaves room for the AMOLED panel.

Everything is well integrated, even the fingerprint reader which is optical and is placed under the screen, in this case 6.77 inches with FullHD + resolution and 120 Hz refresh, also adding an ultra-fast digitizer of up to 240 Hz for the best mobile gaming experience.

You will not be able to ask much more from a mobile that starts from 245 euros, because Xiaomi has once again destroyed the premium mid-range with an exercise of possibilities implemented at a cost as we already know very little greedy

A multimedia section this time above the average

The memory configuration is as always to the taste of the consumer, with options between 6 or 8 GB of RAM and 128, 256 or 512 GB internal storage not expandable.

It also has macro sensor, ultra wide angle and a depth to calculate the depth of the scene.

It has stereo sound, all the connectivity you expect from a mobile in 2020 including also 5G and WiFi 6, and with all this animated by a 4,500 mAh battery with fast charging of up to 33 W.
