As far as the successor for the Pocophone F1 goes – we still haven’t gotten it. And while fans have been in continuous wait over the Pocophone F2 as the midrange segment of the market gains even more popularity, Redmi’s sub-brand helped ease the pain of many who were waiting for the mid-range successor to the original Pocophone – with the Redmi K20 Pro along with the Redmi K20. And now, the latest speculation results us in getting the very first glimpse at both their successors, in the Redmi K30 series. Redmi to part ways with pop-up for dual selfie camera punch-hole with regards to its K30 phones.
In a post which took place on Weibo, the general manager of Redmi, Lu Weibing went on to share a teaser render based on an unspecified K30 series device which possesses a punch-hole display along with – what it seems, is a dual front facing camera setup.
The punch-hole display made its debut this year with the flagship Galaxy S10 series – and while we’re on the subject, one might imagine that there isn’t much that manufacturers can possibly do to improve the anesthetics of a hole in the display – which is why it’s reasonable to suggest that essentially, the placement along with the overall look of the upcoming series would be of similar sorts.

This also goes on to indicate yet another thing : Redmi will abandon the pop-up cameras that we saw placed on both the K20 as well as the K20 Pro. There was also talk on the phone’s 5G compatibility. It has been confirmed already that the phones would be 5G ready as the executive broke the news two months ago – and now, it also has been confirmed that the handsets will support both standalone as well as non-standalone 5G.
In addition to all this, the sensitive topic of pricing has also been touched upon a bit. At a Redmi 8 event which was held in China, Redmi gave an indication as to what we can expect over the possible pricing of the K30 series. The speculation suggests that while the device won’t exactly be the most affordable 5G device on the market, it won’t tarnish Redmi’s reputation of providing great devices at affordable prices.
