Today, Redmi, a brand under the Xiaomi Group, officially released the new Redmi K30 Pro series smartphones. They are considered to be the most cost-effective devices powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 865. Also, this is the first Xiaomi pop-up camera phone sporting the SND865 chip. Its starting price is 2999 yuan ($425). We predict a huge success for this handset when looking at the sales performance of its predecessor, the Redmi K20.
At the press conference, Lu Weibing, vice president of Xiaomi Group, president of Xiaomi China, and general manager of the Redmi brand said: ‘From the release of the Redmi K20 series on May 28 last year to February 24 this year, the phone has been on the market for 9 months. And in this period, it managed to sell over 5 million units worldwide. Moreover, 50% of customers are new users who have not bought the Redmi brand before. By the way, this phone also won the ‘Design Academy Oscar’ known as iF Design Award.
He also added, ‘The Redmi K30 series launched at the end of last year. Thus, it’s been on the market for less than 3 months. Under the environment affected by the epidemic and the supply satisfaction rate of less than 30%, the domestic market alone sold more than 1 million units. These outstanding sales prove that the Redmi K series has successfully established itself in the flagship market.’
In fact, it’s quite difficult to argue his words because the Redmi K line devices are recognized by many users. And with the launch of the Redmi K30 Pro, its value will increase in the high-end smartphone niche for sure.
