China, Beijing
December 10, 2019 at 13:46 GMT +00:00 · Published

Redmi, a sub-brand of Chinese electronics company Xiaomi, unveiled its newest and cheapest 5G smartphone, the K30, during a launch ceremony in Beijing on Tuesday.

Attendees were ecstatic as the new phone featuring a 6.67-inches display, a Snapdragon 765G SoC chip, and a camera with Super Night Scene Mode, RAW format support and Mimojis was being presented.

Redmi's General Manager Lu Weibing praised the company for bringing the price of 5G phones within 2,000 RMB ($285/ €260), saying that he believed the popularity of 5G will be accelerated because of the company.

"Without the popularity of 5G mobile phones, it would be impossible to produce 5G killer apps in batches. Without 5G killer apps, it is impossible to increase traffic, reduce tariffs, and increase the speed and coverage of network coverage. Therefore, in order to solve the four major problems existing in 5G technology, first of all it is necessary to reduce the price of 5G terminals," Lu Weibing stated.

"I hope we become true 5G pioneers. The ultimate goal of a 5G pioneer is to beat the 5G benchmark," he added.

The Redmi K30 5G, with its Flower Shadow, Deep Sea Light, and Purple Jade Fantasy colour options, is expected to hit the market next year alongside a cheaper version of the same model with 4G technology which was also showcased during the presentation.
