Little F2 Pro, is it you? The Redmi K30 Ultra has an almost identical design and a very similar screen
Xiaomi knows that to maintain good prices you have to take advantage of what you already have. In terms of design, the Redmi K30 Ultra is practically the same as the Poco F2 Pro. They share the same size, but the K30 Ultra is a bit thicker and weighs less. The back of the Redmi K30 Ultra is made of glass, its sides are made of aluminum and the screen has Gorilla Glass 5.
The Redmi K30 Ultra even arrives in gradient colors like its brother, although the chosen ones are less daring. The design and location of the rear camera module are identical, only it loses the halo around it. Are there more similarities? Yes, the front camera is also retractable.
With the screen, it is almost the same, although the Redmi K30 Ultra improves some things while cutting others. Thus, the new Xiaomi has a 6.67 ″ panel with Full HD +, HDR10 + resolution and a brightness of 500 nits. The changes? The Redmi K30 Ultra uses a standard AMOLED screen, but its refresh rate goes up to 120Hz, a machine.
The Redmi K30 Ultra wants to be crowned in the mid-range with its MediaTek Dimensity 1000+
We will probably see the Redmi K30 Ultra soon at the top of the best mid-range. How are we so sure? Because it includes a MediaTek Dimensity 1000+ processor. And what does it mean? The Density 1000+ is the same upped 1000L of laps, and the latter is the best mid-range processor according to AnTuTu for August 2020.
On the other hand, the Redmi K30 Ultra arrives with 6 or 8 GB of LPDDR4X RAM, and up to 512 GB of storage, although Xiaomi has not said the format. Unfortunately, you will not be able to use a microSD, but with half a terabyte we doubt that you need it.
What can you expect from this mobile? Fantastic performance in all sorts of situations, and with its 120Hz screen gaming will be a real treat. Can it with Tauceti Unknown Origin? It is the game with the best graphics on Android and a real resource squeezer.
Even the cameras of the Redmi K30 Ultra are those of the Poco F2 Pro
We have mentioned it ad nauseam: the Redmi K30 Ultra is very similar to the Redmi K30 Pro ( Poco F2 Pro ). So much so, that even their cameras are almost the same. The new Xiaomi has four rear cameras and is presented as a good option for lovers of mobile photography.
Its main sensor is 64 MP with f / 1.9 and PDAF, a really interesting camera. Then you will find a 13 MP wide-angle with f / 2.4 and 119º vision that is fantastic to capture everything and nobody is left out.
As a third camera you will find a 5 MP macro sensor with f / 2.2 and autofocus, and finally a 2 MP f / 2.4 depth sensor. Moving to the front, you will have a 20 MP f / 2.2 motorized camera that offers very good quality for your selfies.
The Redmi K30 Ultra equips a 4500 mAh battery and can be charged in 58 minutes
While the charging system of the Redmi K30 Ultra is not Xiaomi’s new ultra-fast charger, the truth is that it is not bad either. This device comes with a 4500 mAh battery to which is added a 33W fast charge. It is a similar configuration to the Poco F2 Pro, and Xiaomi ensures that you will be able to charge your K30 Ultra from 0 to 100% in just 58 minutes. Not bad, right?
Price and availability of the Redmi K30 Ultra
As with the Mi 10 Ultra, the new Redmi K30 Ultra is a tenth-anniversary edition of Xiaomi. The company announced them only for China, and they ruled out their arrival in the rest of the world. In the case of the Redmi, they surely fulfill this, although they could launch it as a Poco F2 Ultra. However, they will surely retract their decision with the Mi 10 Ultra.
