Back in December, Xiaomi announced its latest flagship device dubbed Redmi K30 5G under its Redmi sub-brand. At the time of release, this smartphone has 6GB + 64GB version which costs 1999 yuan, 6GB + 128GB version costing 2299 yuan ($333), and the 8GB + 128GB version which goes for 2599 yuan ($377). Early this year, the company released the 8GB + 256GB version of this smartphone and it was available for 2899 yuan ($413). After a series of temporary price cuts, this series got a permanent price cut back in March as follows
- 6GB + 64GB – 1999 yuan ($281) – no premanent price cut
- 6GB + 128GB – 2299 yuan ($333) – now selling for 2199 yuan ($310)
- 8GB + 128GB – 2599 yuan ($377) – now selling for 2399 yuan ($338)
- 8GB + 256GB – 2899 yuan ($413) – now selling for 2699 yuan ($380)
You will notice that the 6GB + 64GB version did not get any permanent price cut back then. Now, at the Chinese 618 sales, the company reduced the price of the 6GB + 64GB version to 1399 yuan ($198). Today, it announced again that this smartphone will now sell for 1299 yuan ($184). This means that the smartphone now has a 700 yuan ($99) price cut which is massive.
The Redmi K30 5G comes in four colors of Deep Sea Light, Time Monologue, Flower Shadow, and Purple Jade Fantasy. In January, the company put up all the colour options for sale for the first time.
