Back in December 2019, Xiaomi’s sub-brand Redmi launched its Redmi K30 5G smartphone in China. The Redmi K30 5G has already been succeeded by its Pro version, the Redmi K30 Pro 5G, but it does not look like the Chinese smartphone manufacturer is going to close the K30 chapter anytime soon. A little while ago, we heard the rumours surrounding the potential launch of a new smartphone under the Redmi K30 lineup, dubbed the Redmi K30i. The Redmi K30i is alleged to sport a 48MP primary sensor instead of the 64MP unit found on the vanilla Redmi K30 5G. Today, we have been able to spot a new update in the Redmi K30 5G smartphone on the Chinese TENAA certification authority website, which gives more weight to the Redmi K30i theory. The Redmi K30 5G has been spotted on TENAA once again, but with a changed feature this time around – the 64MP camera has been replaced by a 48MP camera. Mapping this with the previous leak, we have reason to believe that the newly listed model could be the Redmi K30i. Take a look at what the TENAA certification for the alleged Redmi K30i has in store for us.

Possible Redmi K30i With a 48MP Quad Camera Visits TENAA

As seen in the TENAA certification images, the alleged Redmi K30i (with the model number M2001G7AC) will feature a 48MP rear camera. The model number resonates to that of the Redmi K30 5G. Furthermore, the TENAA certification does not identify it as a new device altogether. The removal of the 64MP primary camera and the addition of the 48MP sensor is being marked as an update (2020-03-31) on TENAA.

Coming to the rest of the specifications of the device, they are more or less the same as that of the standard Redmi K30 5G. The Redmi K30i will measure 165.4×76.6×8.8mm and weigh in at 209 grams. The device will be fueled by a 4,400mAh battery (the Redmi K30 5G has a 4,500mAh cell, for reference). It is unclear as to whether or not the Redmi K30i will have scope for fast charging, but given that it is a 5G device, we can safely assume that there will be some sort of fast charging technology involved.

Moving on, the Redmi K30i will feature a 6.67-inch IPS LCD panel with a 2,400 x 1,080 Full HD+ resolution. The device will make room for a pill-shaped dual punch-hole cutout for the selfie snapper, which will be located in the top right corner of the device’s display. Moving around on the rear of the device, the Redmi K30i will come with a quadruple rear camera setup, which will include a 48MP primary lens (notice that the TENAA certification has not updated the camera resolution on its table for now). The volume up and down buttons and the power button will be on the right side of the device. The power button will double as the fingerprint scanner.

Under the hood, the Redmi K30i will be powered by a 2.4GHz processor, which we assume to be the Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G SoC. The processor will be clubbed by 6GB/8GB/10GB of RAM and 64GB/128GB/256GB of onboard storage. As far as OS is concerned, the Redmi K30i will run Android 10 OS out of the box with the company’s in-house MIUI 11 skin baked on top of it.

As of now, this is pretty much all the intel that we have surrounding the upcoming Redmi K30i, but we are sure to receive more information on the same in the coming days. Whenever we do, we will keep you posted on the same.
