Chinese manufacturing giant, Xiaomi, is doing all it can to release relevant smartphones despite the coronavirus pandemic. Its sub-brand, Redmi is even doing more in terms of unveiling budget-friendly smartphones. Recall that Redmi had already released the Redmi K30 series. As of now, this series has four smartphones. They include Redmi K30, Redmi K30 5G, Redmi K30 Pro and Redmi K30 Pro Zoom models. However, it seems that Redmi is not done and it is planning to launch another phone in the Redmi K30 series. There are reports that Redmi will release a cheap Redmi K30 Lite 5G which will be called, Redmi K30i.
This device will be the most affordable 5G phone in the Redmi K30 series. 5G has come and smartphone manufacturers believe that target for the market soon. There is currently a plan to rapidly promote the expansion of 5G users. The best way to do this is to develop affordable 5G phones which can sell for 1000 yuan ($141) or less. This is the target of Xiaomi and it is using its Redmi brand to achieve the target.
According to reports, the Redmi K30i 5G phone will officially debut at the end of April. Although the Redmi K30i will be the cheapest 5G phone in the K30 series, it will not be as low as 1000 yuan ($141). We have information that this smartphone is only slightly different from the Redmi K30 5G. It uses a 48MP main camera while the K30 5G comes with a 64MP main shooter. The rest of the configuration remains the same and the final price is 1799 yuan (254).
It is worth noting that an internal document exposure also revealed that Xiaomi will launch a new 5G smartphone. This device will come with a 1599 yuan ($226) price tag and will arrive in June. This phone is likely to be the Redmi Note 9 series.
