Is Redmi K30 Using ‘Coin Machine’ Design Or Not?

Redmi K30 5G

Earlier this month, Xiaomi released the Redmi K30. It is equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 730G processor and a built-in 4500mAh battery. Its 5G variant debuts with the Snapdragon 765G chip and there are other selling points as well. However, one of the most attractive parts of these phones is the rear design. Not accidentally, its rear camera design was called the ‘coin camera style’. This comes from one of blogger who said that the rear design of the Redmi K30 phone is very similar to a ‘coin machine’.

This morning, Lu Weibing, vice president of Xiaomi Group and general manager of the Redmi brand, released an interesting image on Weibo. He also added that the Redmi K30 smartphone uses the ‘coin machine style’.

Lu Weibing said that when the K30’s design photos were published, many Mi fans called this design a ‘coin machine’ and showed many comparison pictures. ‘I was surprised at first because the design of the ‘coin machine’ was not taken into account when designing. But when I thought of it, I understood there are real similarities.’

Some Mi fans said: The ‘Coin machine’ is a good design, suggesting that is a source of money rolling. For some users, this is a retro style and many users were thinking Xiaomi has been inspired by the coin machines and wants the users to go back to their childhood. However, some users were sure that this is not a slot machine, but it is a keyhole.

As you see, the imagination of users has no borders. But the truth is when designing the Redmi K30, the Xiaomi designers were thinking of anything else.
