Redmi K30 5G Speed Edition to debut with Snapdragon 768G on 11th May
For some reason, there are a lot of launch events on 11th May. Is it a particularly lucky day? Well, for those waiting to get a device that offers a bit better performance than the Redmi K30 5G, you might consider yourself lucky as Redmi will be launching the Redmi K30 5G Speed Edition in China on 11th May with a new Snapdragon 768G chipset.
The upcoming chipset appears to be an overclocked variant of the Snapdragon 765G, offering higher-clocked CPU cores, with one core running at 2.8 GHz and another at 2.4 GHz, as well as a faster Adreno 620 that runs up to 750 MHz in the Snapdragon 768G instead of the 625 MHz in the older SoC. The Snapdragon 768G has been leaked to score around 360 000 in Antutu, which is quite a huge leap from the Snapdragon 765G’s score of around 300 000. That’s probably the inspiration behind the Redmi K30 5G Speed Edition moniker.
Redmi K30 5G Speed Edition Specs
- Snapdragon 768G, octa-core up to 2.8 GHz, 7nm
- 6GB LPDDR4x RAM
- 128GB UFS 2.1 storage
- 6.67″ 120 Hz LCD display
- 64MP f/1.89 + 8MP f/2.2 ultra-wide + 5MP f/2.4 macro + 2MP f/2.4 depth sensor
- 20MP f/2.2 + 2MP f/2.4 depth sensor
- 4500 mAh battery, 30W fast charging
Aside from the bumped up Snapdragon 768G chipset, the Redmi K30 5G Speed Edition appears to be pretty similar to the standard Redmi K30 5G. Hopefully the price will be rather reasonable too for the slight bump in performance.
As of now, there are quite a number of Redmi K30 variants. You have the standard Redmi K30, the Redmi K30 5G, the flagship killer Redmi K30 Pro and the Redmi K30 Pro Zoom Edition, the Redmi K30 5G Speed Edition here today, as well as a previously rumored Redmi K30i, that’s expected to be a more affordable variant with a 48MP camera instead of the 64MP ones found in the rest of the lineup. Hope it doesn’t get too confusing!
Pokdepinion: Seriously, how many Redmi K30s does the world need? Actually, the world needs more. China probably can do with a few less.
