Xiaomi recently confirmed that the Xiaomi Redmi K30 will be launching on December 10 in China as its global launch. The Redmi K30 will be the flagship smartphone of Xiaomi Redmi series because of its 5G support and dual punch-hole camera display. The Redmi K30 Pro might be launched alongside the Redmi K30. Rumours, however, suggest that the Redmi K30 Pro will only be out early 2020 with the flagship Qualcomm chipset.
