Redmi K30 Launch Delayed Till 2020
The launch of the Redmi’s flagship phone K30, which was scheduled for this year, has now been delayed. This piece of news has been confirmed by Xiaomi Vice President and Redmi General Manager Lu Weibing. In a Weibo post, Weibing stated that the series will be launched in 2020 and not 2019. He has not given any particular launch date, but confirms that it will not hit the market anytime soon.
Weibing on a post on Weibo shares China Mobile’s evaluation of 4G hotspot tests with three Xiaomi phones lined up on the list such as Redmi K20 Pro, Redmi Note 8 Pro, and Redmi Note 8. This evaluation was confirmed at the China Mobile Worldwide Partner Conference, and at the end of the post, Weibing wrote, “In 2020, Redmi is a 5G pioneer. See you at K30”
To give a proper explanation, Weibing also mentioned that Xiaomi has been undergoing a series of technical defaults in the early 5G era and is currently working to enhance the best quality 5G terminal to Redmi phones. He also penned down that Redmi is continuing to adhere to high quality and excellent connectivity options and is not willing to launch a phone with technical difficulties.
The Redmi K30 series is teased to sport a hole-punch display with two holes placed on the top-right edge. The company had also teased that the phone will come with support for 5G standalone and non-standalone (SA/NSA) sub-6GHz networks. A 4G variant should also be launched alongside. Xiaomi will presumably integrate the Snapdragon 7 series chips on the Redmi K30, however a recent leak even pointed to a MediaTek SoC. A Redmi K30 Pro variant is also expected to launch beside the Redmi K30.
