Xiaomi is celebrating his birthday. In August 2009, the company’s first mobile was announced and, to celebrate, the company has announced new smartphones. The Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra has taken all the attention, understandable if we take into account its star specifications (120 Hz screen, 120W load and 120x zoom), but it has not been the only terminal presented, there has also been space for he new Xiaomi Redmi K30 Ultra.
The company has taken advantage of the appointment to announce a new member of its Redmi K30 family. As we already know from previous models, the K30 range is reserved exclusively for China, although that does not mean that it does not go beyond its borders. It does, but under different names. The Redmi K20 and K20 Pro arrived in Spain as the Xiaomi Mi 9T and Mi 9T Pro, while the Redmi K30 Pro was the Poco F2 Pro. We don’t know if the Redmi K30 Ultra will come out of China or the name it will have, but looking at the trajectory is not unreasonable to think that We could be facing the future Xiaomi Mi 10T. We will have to wait to find out, for now what we do know are its characteristics.

Pop-up camera to give all the prominence to the screen
Retractable or ‘pop-up’ cameras are almost a tradition in the K family and the Xiaomi Redmi K30 Ultra maintains it. Thanks to this detail we have a front completely clear, without ‘notches’ or holes, although it still has a wider bottom frame, but at least in the photos it does not seem too exaggerated.
And since we are talking about the front, let’s talk about the screen. The Xiaomi Redmi K30 Ultra mounts a panel 6.77-inch AMOLED, so we are not talking about a manageable mobile. In fact, in addition to being large, it is heavy: 213 grams, which is said soon. Going back to the panel, it has FullHD + resolution, 1,200 nit brightness, HDR10 + and most importantly: 120Hz refresh rate. At this point it matches the Mi 10 Ultra announced at the same event.
Despite not being the highest range of the manufacturer, the K30 Ultra does not give up the 120 Hz screen
If we turn it around, round camera module takes center stage. We have three cameras: a 64-megapixel main sensor, a 13-megapixel wide-angle, and a 5-megapixel macro lens, no telephoto. The fourth sensor is n ToF to help detect the depth of the scene. Regarding the front camera, it has a resolution of 20 megapixels.
Mediatek motor and 4,500 mAh
In the hardware section we have a Mediatek brain, but not just any one, but the Mediatek Dimensity 1000, accompanied by a Mali G77 graphics processor. The chip supports 5G SA and NSA. The base model’s RAM is 6GB and is available in a single 128GB capacity variant, while the 8GB RAM version comes with 128, 256 and 512GB.
The battery is 4,500 mAh, a balanced figure for its screen size, although it remains to be seen how it responds in daily use. Regarding fast charging, in this case we have a 33W system, correct but far removed from the 120W of the Mi 10 Ultra announced at the same event.
Versions and prices of the Xiaomi Redmi K30 Ultra
As we said at the beginning, the K series terminals do not leave China, at least not with that name, but we can be almost sure that we will see this terminal under another nomenclature soon. Everything points to what could be the successor to the Xiaomi Mi 9T, but we will have to wait to confirm it. These are the official prices in China:
Xiaomi Redmi K30 Ultra with 6GB / 128GB: 1,999 yuan or 244 euros to change
Xiaomi Redmi K30 Ultra with 8GB / 128GB: 2,199 yuan or 269 euros to change
Xiaomi Redmi K30 Ultra with 8GB / 256GB: 2,499 yuan or 306 euros to change
