Xiaomi Redmi K30s

Design and Display

When it comes to design, the Xiaomi Redmi K30s can be best described as a spitting image of the Redmi Mi 10T. The resemblance is uncanny. They also share the same color variants, which is going to make differentiating them by their outward appearance difficult.

Perusing the Redmi K30s chassis, you will find a square camera module on the rear bearing four cameras and an LED flash. You will also find some text branding on the rear, give you some details about the mobile phone, and furthermore let you know it’s a Xiaomi smartphone.

Upfront, we have got a 6.67-inch display, which happens to be the same size as the Xiaomi Redmi K30 ultra’s display. However, comparing the display properties on both smartphones reveals that opted for an IPS LCD panel as opposed to the AMOLED panel we got on the K30 ultra.

Xiaomi sort of made compensation for this downgrade in the display panel, by employing a 144Hz refresh rate, as opposed to 120Hz on the K30 ultra.

The other major parameters of the display include a resolution of 1080 x 2400, a density of 395 PPI.

Enthusiats who decide to go for this mobile phone will have to decide between Cosmic Black and Lunar Silver, as those are the color variants available.

The Cameras

The cameras on the Xiaomi Redmi K30s, are sort of a reminiscence of what we of the cameras on the Redmi K30 ultra. With what appears to be just a missing camera.

The rear camera package offers a 64MP primary camera with an aperture of f/1.9, a 13MP ultrawide camera with an aperture of f/2.4, and a 5MP macro camera with an aperture of f/2.4.
