Redmi K30 Ultra Tipped as New Xiaomi Phone With a Pop-Up Selfie Camera

Redmi K30 Ultra could possibly be a new smartphone in Xiaomi’s portfolio. As its name suggests, the new Redmi phone will probably sit along side the existing Redmi K30 and Redmi K30 Pro. A mention of the Redmi K30 Ultra has been spotted within a MIUI 12 build along with a code name “cezanne”. However, Xiaomi hasn’t made any official announcement in regards to the new Redmi phone. Some recent reports suggested its plans towards bringing the Redmi K40 as the successor to the Redmi K30, though.

An XDA forum member with a pseudonym kacskrz has found some references about the Redmi K30 Ultra in the recent MIUI 12 build, reports XDA Developers. The phone appeared alongside its codename cezanne. Another code snippet within the MIUI 12 build suggesting the new Redmi phone reportedly hinted at its quad rear camera setup, alongside a 64-megapixel primary sensor.

Xiaomi can be found to provide a pop-up camera setup on the Redmi K30 Ultra. Further, the new model seems to have a MediaTek SoC. It is very important to point out that the company has so far used Qualcomm chips on its Redmi K-series models.

If we believe the given information, the Redmi K30 Ultra appears to be similar to the Redmi K30 Pro that Xiaomi launched in China in March. There would be some changes to focus on a different set of clients, though.

The rumour mill doesn’t have any concrete information regarding the Redmi K30 Ultra. It, however, does have some information about the Redmi K40 that could be from the newly emerged model. For instance, the Redmi K40 was recently reported to own a MediaTek Dimensity 1000+ SoC. This might be something which could be a part of the Redmi K30 Ultra. The phone is also rumoured to have a 120Hz display, which could be featured on the newly reported Redmi model.

Since Xiaomi hasn’t yet provided any information regarding neither the Redmi K30 Ultra nor the Redmi K40, it’s safe to think about the rumours with a healthy dose of scepticism.
