Xiaomi is trying to capture every smartphone market, whether its a mid-range, budget, or flagship market. The Redmi K30 series is a perfect example of my statement. The Redmi K30 series consists of Redmi K30 4G, Redmi K30 5G, and Redmi K30 Pro. The K30 4G is powered by Snapdragon 730G as a mid-range offering while K30 5G features Snapdragon 765G as an upper mid-range offering. And finally for the top-notch lovers, the K30 Pro with Snapdragon 865. There are now two more phones in the K30 lineup. One is speculated to be the budget Redmi K30i and a new, unexpected phone.
The unexpected phone also features an un-expected chipset. It will be called as Redmi K30 5G Speed Edition (Extreme Edition). The phone is said to launch with an un-announced Snapdragon 768G.
The upcoming Redmi K30 5G Speed Edition was first leaked from a Chinese retailer’s listing. It stated that the K30 5G Speed Edtion will feature Snapdragon 768G. We first thought it might have been a typo mistake. Later, the specs of chipset got leaked as well as the K30 5G Speed Edition is officially revealed via a poster on Weibo. The poster also confirms that the Snapdragon 768G is a real chipset and not a typo mistake.
The all-new upcoming Snapdragon 768G will feature Octa-core CPU and a similar cluster arrangement as the 765G. Although, compared to the 765G the 768G will have higher clock frequencies. It is also expected to have the same Adreno 620 GPU, although the GPU will feature higher frequencies. The newer chipset is said to have a 10% performance increase over Snapdragon 765G. And finally, it will also feature 5G connectivity.
