The Redmi K30 became the talk of the town when Redmi General Manager Lu Weibing made the official announcement on Weibo in late August last year. Since then, we’ve been learning more and more about the handset’s more powerful ‘Pro’ version, which is expected to hit the market soon. The Redmi K30 was officially launched in China in late 2019 and came to India earlier this week in the form of the Poco X2. Now though, we’re learning from a recent Gizmochina report that the Redmi K30 Pro could feature a large 4700mAh battery that has support for 33W fast charging.

According to the report, a pre-production unit of the Redmi K30 Pro was spotted featuring a 4700mAh battery by online tipster Digital chat station. The handset is expected to be bundled with a Xiaomi charger that, according to the 3C regulatory body in China, bears the model numbers MDY-11-EF and MDY-11-EX. The charger is rated at 33W for fast charging. For reference, the Redmi K30 has a 4500mAh battery. Since this information hasn’t come directly from Redmi, we suggest you take it with a pinch of salt till the Redmi K30 Pro officially hits the market.

The outgoing Redmi K20 Pro and Redmi K20, by contrast, ship with a smaller 4000mAh battery. Though the bundled charger is an 18W unit, they have support for a 27W fast charger. The Redmi K20 Pro is similar to its ‘non-Pro’ sister in almost every except the processor. While the Redmi K20 Pro sports a flagship-grade Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 chip, the Redmi K20 makes do with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 730 chip. If the upcoming Redmi K30 Pro indeed sports a larger battery than the Redmi K30, then it’s possible its camera setup, too, is more sophisticated.

Since the battery capacity doesn’t appear to be increasing by much, there’s a good chance the Redmi K30 Pro isn’t a larger device in the user’s hands. The screen on the Redmi K30 Pro is expected to be the same 6.67-inch IPS LCD unit that currently does duty on the Redmi K30. The screen’s resolution, too, should be the same 1080 x 2400 pixels. When it becomes available, the Redmi K30 Pro is expected to run the company’s proprietary MIUI 11 software that’s based on Android 10. We expect to learn more about the Redmi K30 Pro in the coming weeks.
