Redmi K30S is the “twin” of the Mi 10T. Both sets have similar specifications and designs. It’s just that, the name Mi 10T was changed (rebranded) to Redmi K30S for certain markets where the Redmi brand is widely known. The difference between the Redmi K30S and the Mi 10T lies only in the configuration of the RAM and storage they carry. Redmi K30S only has one choice of RAM, namely 8 GB, while the Mi 10T has two options, namely 6 GB and 8 GB.

However, Redmi K30S provides two storage options, namely 128 GB and 256 GB, while the Mi 10T storage capacity option is only 128 GB. The rest, the specifications of the two phones are identical. Redmi K30S carries a 6.67-inch IPS LCD screen with a resolution of 1,080 x 2,400 with a refresh rate of 144 Hz. This screen is protected by Gorilla Glass 5 and has a punch hole that is placed on the top left of the phone. The punch hole contains a 20 MP (f / 2.2) front camera. While on the back, there are three cameras wrapped in a module. The three cameras consist of a 64 MP f / 1.9 main camera, a 13 MP f / 2.4 ultrawide camera, and a 5 MP f / 2.4 macro camera.

Redmi K30S has a Snapdragon 865 chip (Kryo 585 CPU and Adreno 650 GPU). Because the Redmi K30S still uses an LCD screen, the fingerprint scanner of this phone is not on the screen. Xiaomi puts the Redmi K30S fingerprint scanner on the side, concurrently with the power button. Other specifications include NFC, USB type C, and a 5,000 mAh battery with 33W fast charging. Like its twin, this phone also doesn’t have a 3.5mm audio jack. Redmi K30S also supports 5G networks.

Redmi K30S comes in black and silver color options. This phone is priced at 2,599 yuan for the 8GB / 128GB variant, and 2,799 for the 8GB / 256GB variant. Redmi K30S will go on sale in China on 11 November.
