After all the big launches in the past few months, you would have thought that the November-December period was going to a bit slow in terms of new devices. However, there are a bunch of powerful smartphones coming our way in this period, including the Vivo X30 and the Redmi K30. Xiaomi has already confirmed an event for the Redmi K30 in December, and today, we have a few details on the possible specs of the device.
According to XDA, Xiaomi’s upcoming smartphone code-named Pheonix will come with a 120Hz refresh rate and side-mounted fingerprint sensor. XDA managed to extract this information from the recent MIUI 11 nightly builds. What makes it even more interesting is this mystery smartphone could very well be the Redmi K30.Editor’s Pick: Google Play Protect blocking update for Xiaomi’s Quick Apps
Apart from shifting the fingerprint sensor to the right side, the Redmi K30 could also feature dual punch-hole cameras on the front. The front dual cameras are likely to be placed on the top right corner of the device, just like the Galaxy S10+. In comparison, the upcoming Honor V30 will reportedly feature dual punch-hole cameras on the top left corner.
120Hz refresh rate would also be a big deal for an upper mid-range smartphone like the Redmi K30. Currently, smartphones in the segment come with either 60Hz or at max 90Hz screen refresh rates. So this would be a big jump from the competition. Other expected features include the Sony IMx686 60MP sensor and dual-mode 5G (supports SA/ NSA).
There are rumors about the Redmi K30 featuring the upcoming MediaTek 5G chipset, but it’s likely that the company makes use of a new Qualcomm 5G chip for its new device.UP NEXT: Xiaomi’s eBook reader named Mi Reader is now up for crowdfunding in China
