Xiaomi Redmi K30 Pro arrives with a brilliant design that looks a bit futuristic as well. The front has no notch since the front camera setup is motorized and pops up when required. The speaker grille is integrated on the top bezel while all bezels are extremely crisp and narrow except the chin which is slightly thick but as per flagship phones. There’s a quad-camera setup arranged as vertices of a square in an interesting curved shape inside a circular camera bump. The back panel doesn’t have anything else but a “Redmi” branding and a glass back with Corning Gorilla Glass 5 that creates a sandwiched design with glass on top and back and an aluminium frame in-between. To top it all up, the users also get a 3.5mm headphone jack on this device which is almost rare these days.
Talking about the display on-board Xiaomi Redmi K30 Pro, it sports a 6.67-inch Super AMOLED panel with a resolution of 1080×2400 pixels. The display has a 395 PPI density and manages to squeeze 87.2% of the screen-to-body ratio. The display is HDR10+ compliant and produces 500 nits of typical brightness. It is protected with a Corning Gorilla Glass 5 on top of the display. The display also has in-built light sensors to detect the ambient light conditions for a comfortable experience. It is also certified by TÜV Rheinland to provide the users with eye comfort. There is no high refresh rate on the display which means it comes with the standard 60Hz display as other Xiaomi devices. This can be disappointing as well considering the high price.

It is paired alongside Adreno 650 GPU, with up to 12GB of LPDDR5 RAM and UFS 3.0/UFS 3.1 storage system based on which storage variant you pick, for uncompromised power-packed performance. Redmi K30 Pro is made truly for gamers as it also packs a vapor cooling chamber system to control the temperature of the device.
Moreover, it runs on the latest Android 10 MIUI 11 out-of-the-box that gives it an edge over other smartphones.
Redmi K30 Pro sports a quad-camera setup at the back which is dominated by a brilliant 64MP primary sensor boasting 0.8micron pixel size, PDAF, and an aperture of f/1.9.

Xiaomi Redmi K30 Pro does offer a lot at a mid-range price tag that purely increases its performance like never before. It has a stunning glass and aluminium frame sandwich design along with pretty impressive imaging sensors onboard both the front and the back that makes it a must-have. Moreover, it can act as a high-end gaming phone while costing you half of an ordinary flagship phone in 2020 thus, it packs a lot of potential to become an all-powerful daily driver for power users.
