The display is crafted from Samsung E3 AMOLED material that allows efficient battery use while boasting up to 1,200nits of brightness. With 5,000,000:1 contrast ratio, 100% coverage DCI-P3 color gamut, and HDR10+ support, the device guarantees a vivid and colorful viewing experience.

Redmi K30 Ultra’s automatic brightness adjustment is smoother and more accurate than ever, powered by a 360° light sensing technology.

Redmi K30 Ultra is also the first Redmi smartphone to adopt a dual stereo speaker, outputting impressive stereo sound for a truly immersive experience.

Redmi K30 Ultra is powered by a MediaTek Dimensity 1000+ 5G flagship processor with a 7nm process and the latest high performance ARM Cortex-A77 and Mali-G77 cores. It has been given an AnTuTu score of over 530,000.

The smartphone boasts outstanding AI functionality with a six-core independent APU 3.0 composed of a combination of large and small cores that enable accurate adjustment for more application scenarios. The handset efficiently balances computing power with power consumption, and flexibly processes AI-based tasks. Redmi K30 Ultra has been ranked first in the ETH Zurich AI-Benchmark ranking.

Running on dual Hyper Engine 2.0 and Game Turbo optimization engines, Redmi K30 Ultra is a perfect fit for most games on the market, ensuring rapid, responsive and frictionless gaming experience.

Redmi K30 Ultra supports the most advanced network communication technology currently available in Mainland China – SA/NSA dual mode 5G networks. It is one of the first smartphones in the world to support dual 5G standby. Combined with Redmi’s smart dual-SIM switch function, this allows the smartphone to be connected to the fastest 5G network available at all times. On top of that, Redmi K30 Ultra’s 5G dual carrier aggregation technology, not only effectively doubles 5G network speeds but also expands the range of 5G signal reception.

The device is able to intelligently match its network utilization based on the usage loads, dynamically optimizing the network. On top of that, it retains a stable and fast 5G connection in tricky environments such as elevators, trains and undergrounds through targeted network tuning.

Stunning photography: 64MP quad camera and Audio Zoom

Redmi K30 Ultra is fitted with a quad rear camera system, consisting of a 64MP high resolution main camera, a 13MP ultra-wide angle camera, a 5MP telemacro camera, and a 2MP portrait depth sensor.

The 64MP high resolution main camera supports four-in-one 1.6μm large pixels, allowing the hardware to combine four smaller pixels to output 64MP ultra-clear images with large pixels. Meanwhile, the 119° ultra wide-angle lens makes room for stunning landscape snaps, while the portrait depth sensor lens combined with the main camera takes beautiful portraits with natural background blurring.

The telemacro lens boasts a 50mm equivalent focal length, twice the length of the standard smartphone macro lens on the market. It allows images to be taken from much further afield than usual while avoiding disturbance to the objects being photographed. This significantly increases the number of scenarios in which the macro lens can be used.

For videos, Redmi K30 Ultra comes with Audio Zoom support. Unlike ordinary dual-mic phones, Redmi K30 Ultra has three microphones, which allows it to “zoom” in on the sound along with the image and capture clear audio even from further away, considerably improving sound reception during filming.

Redmi K30 Ultra enables a myriad of creative photography functions based on its AI capabilities, such as AI Skyscaping and Photo Clones. Photo Clones allows users to take fun surreal photos at any time with no post editing required. The AI Skyscaping feature captures a section of the sky in the photo and allows users to switch and edit it with one tap to create high-quality beautiful images regardless of weather conditions and location.

NFC support ensures convenient contactless experience allowing users to get rid of their door fobs, transport cards, and bank cards.

Redmi K30 Ultra is equipped with a full suite of flagship-level configurations, sporting a linear motor producing rich vibrations and quick reactions, an IR blaster, that can turn the device into a remote control for traditional household appliances, and an in-screen fingerprint sensor for extra security.
