Redmi K30 Ultra: The Flagship Killer

by Eva Watson Writer

Xiaomi recently launched the Redmi K30 Ultra In its 10th-anniversary event which was paired by the launch of Xiaomi’s new flagship smartphone Mi 10 Ultra and a futuristic transparent TV. But what Xiaomi really does best is mid-range smartphones. The earlier variant Redmi K30 Pro was arguably one of the best value smartphones when it launched. Now, this seems to change as Redmi, the sub-brand of Xiaomi has unveiled the new Redmi K30 Ultra. Let’s dive in to have a look at some of the detailed aspects and significant highlights of the phone.

Screen and Design

One of the major standouts of the Redmi K series has been their displays. K30 Ultra is no exception; it comes with a notch-less uninterrupted full view display as Redmi has decided to go with a pop-up camera. The screen is a 6.67 inch Samsung AMOLED panel which offers some great viewing angles and punchy colour reproduction having deep blacks and bright RGB colours. The peak brightness can shoot up to 1,200nits which comes with a 5,000,000:1 contrast ratio and 360-degree ambient light sensor. There is no change when it comes to design; it looks exactly like the earlier variant.

The camera module is circular which packs in four cameras at the back. The phone is made out of plastic, and the screen is protected with Gorilla Glass. However, you may see some new colour options in the new K30 Ultra. But what’s really changed is the fact that now the new K30 Ultra has a 120Hz screen refresh rate, a feature you rarely see in this price segment. Now screen refresh rate has become a significant part of differentiating a phone from being an ordinary one or a premium one. The 120Hz panel promises a more snappy experience overall with faster touch sampling and unnoticeable time lags between the touch input and the screen response time.


Unlike the previous K30 Pro which has the flagship Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 chipset, the Redmi K30 Ultra now comes with a MediaTek Dimensity 1000+ chipset. Even though this may seem like a downgrade in performance since the Dimensity 1000+ chip ranks slightly low when compared to the performance of Snapdragon 865, the new MediaTek Dimensity 1000+ is the company’s latest flagship-grade processor with impressive performance stats and exciting features. The device blazes through the day to day tasks with ease, even if you throw in heavy tasks such as video rendering or even heavy graphic-intensive games, the chipset manages to run them well and provides you with a smooth and seamless experience. It is safe to say that the chipset guarantees you with a flagship quality performance at a budget price.


Surprisingly, the battery capacity has now reduced from 4,700mAh in the K30 Pro to 4,500mAh. This seems like a move for cutting the cost of the phone. However, what is worth noting is that it still retains 33W fast charging support and with a smaller battery in the device, the charging speed is expected to improve even more. Xiaomi is known to provide the best values for the price; you get everything necessary within the box contents of the phone itself. Yes, this means that the box will include a 33-watt fast charger, silicone case for protection, and a pre-applied screen guard in the smartphone’s display. It promises an average of 6 to 7 hours of battery life, which is fairly decent considering the new, improved and efficient chipset.


Coming to the camera department, the Redmi K30 Ultra houses a quad-camera setup at the back. There is a primary 64-megapixel Sony sensor, a wide-angle camera of 13MP that offers a 119-degree field of view, a 5MP telephoto lens along with a depth sensor. And in the front, you get a 20MP pop-up style camera for selfies. It has a total of 5 cameras. The quality of the shots are decent enough when it gets good daylight; the quality faces a hit as the lights go dim. The dedicated night mode does a fantastic job of capturing more light in low light conditions and providing a clear output. We can say that the camera is quite comparable to the OnePlus Nord.

Overall the Redmi K30 Ultra seems like a superb value deal and the mid-range segment. Even if the price increases a bit when it is launched to other markets, it will still be a terrific deal for the price it comes. It seems like Xiaomi is in the way of revolutionising the smartphone market by bringing to us some fantastic mid-range smartphones that are comparable to the much expensive flagships that cost twice or thrice as much.
