The first flagship series from the “Redmi” sub-brand was the Redmi K20 Series. These series include the Redmi K20 and K20 Pro. Back in December Xiaomi announced the successors for the Redmi K20 i.e. the Redmi K30 4G and Redmi K30 5G. However, these smartphones were only released in their home market i.e. China. The device is expected to hit the other markets soon. There were reports that the REdmi K30 would be rebranded for India as Poco X2. Apparently, the Redmi K20 Pro didn’t receive the successor. But now as per reports, Xiaomi is working for a successor to the Redmi K20 Pro i.e. the Redmi K30 Pro. Everyone was sure that the Xiaomi would launch the Redmi K30 Pro with the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 865. And now the device enters in the GeekBench listing with the same chipset.
Redmi K30 Pro’s GeekBench Listing
As we said above, the Redmi K30 Pro has entered in the GeekBench 5.1 listing. The device comes with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 SoC which pairs with 8GB of RAM. The smartphone scores 900 in Single-Core tests and 3300 in Multi-Core tests. The device runs on the Android 10. This means that the device will run on top of MIUI 11.
There were rumors about the K30 Pro will sport the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 SoC. But now with the GeekBench listing, this is confirmed. The device will also have dual punch-hole and 120Hz refresh rate display as the K30. There are some reports that the K30 Pro will sport an FHD+ OLED Display. It will also carry support for an in-display fingerprint scanner. We can’t expect that the device to sport an OLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate because the K30 Pro’s prices will be cheaper. But if K30 Pro joins the OnePlus 8 for offering OLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate, then it would be possible. Apparently there are reports which suggest this would sport a 6.67-inch screen.
The Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 Soc will pair with 8GB and 12GB of RAM and 256 / 512GB of internal storage. Coming to the optics the K30 pro will also sport the same setup like the Redmi K30. Even though they are the same configurations, there would be a drastic difference in camera quality. Since the Snapdragon 865’s ISP is more powerful compared to the Snapdragon 730G’s or 765G’s ISP. As said it would sport a 64MP + 8 + 2 + 2 quad rear camera. To the front, it will sport a 20MP primary sensor which couples a 2MP secondary sensor.
