Redmi K30 Hands-on: 120hz Screen Experience Who Uses Who Knows


[Bestbuy618 Mobile Channel] The Redmi K30, Xiaomi’s first dual-mode 5G phone, has arrived in time for the end of 2019. Many manufacturers have launched their own new 5G cell phones even before the official commercialization of 5G. The major manufacturers have been more vigorous after commercialization, 5G terminal products have been launched, the development of 5G baseband is also being improved step by step, Qualcomm’s first 5G integrated SoC has debuted on the Redmi K30, but unfortunately, the Redmi K30 is the 4G version of the Redmi K30, but the Redmi K30 not only brings the price of 5G phones to within $2,000, but also brings the 120

The Redmi K30 has a 120Hz refresh rate flowing screen that can refresh 120 frames per second, which doubles the screen’s size when compared to a traditional 60Hz screen display. If you just brush a movie every day, you may not be able to feel the advantages of 120Hz, but if you are continuously sliding the screen, such as microblogging, Taobao, or games, you can clearly feel the screen response, low trailing shadows, smoother display, more touch control, especially in the game of immersion is also stronger. It’s a shame that the Snapdragon 730G isn’t a high-end processor, so I didn’t feel the unique experience of 120Hz for a short period of time because I couldn’t achieve a high frame rate in large games like “Peace Elite.” It is worth noting, however, that Redmi has already collaborated with Tencent’s QQ Speed, which was the first to open a high frame rate mode, allowing players to intuitively feel the thrill of realistic acceleration and drifting. Furthermore, the Redmi K30 series supports system-level intelligent frame rate adjustment, which can be dynamically switched between 60Hz and 120Hz depending on the scenario, providing a good balance between experience and power consumption.

The Redmi K30 has a 6.67-inch 20:9 Full HD dual-hole full-screen with COF process and extremely narrow bezel design, with top, left, right, and bottom bezel thicknesses of only 2.05mm, 1.85mm, and 4.25mm, respectively, and a screen-to-body ratio of 91 percent. The Redmi K30 comes in three colors: Purple Jade, Deep Sea Shimmer, and Flower Shadow, and some users have commented that it looks like a “coin machine.”

Although the Redmi K30 series has received the most attention in terms of 5G, the Redmi K30’s photography is still worth mentioning. The Redmi K30 debuts with Sony IMX686 64MP flagship sensor with a sensing area of up to 1/1.7 inches and supports Remosaic straight out 64 million ultra-clear photos with a resolution of up to 92486944.

The 64 megapixel camera was previously used in Redmi’s Note8 series, and the Sony IMX686 still provides excellent resolution this time around. Following that, the Xiaomi CC9 Pro is directly mass-produced 100 megapixels, so the charm of 64 megapixels does not require too many samples to demonstrate; for example, in the following image, a piece from the 64 megapixel sample still has a very clear picture. The same issue, high pixel brings high resolution images, but also occupies a lot of memory, 64 megapixel samples more than 20M is common, so colleagues who take more pictures, or to consider the large memory version.

The Redmi K30 has a 20M 2M dual front-facing camera combination, which provides a more natural bokeh effect for selfie portraits. Furthermore, the front-facing camera supports wide-angle panorama mode. Simply rotate the phone and use the front camera to take three photos in a row to create a wide-angle panoramic photo. Wide-angle selfie sample (the background has a broken layer) Of course, the K30 has a very thoughtful feature – one-key Vlog.

One-key Vlog function supports automatic editing of the captured video with music, and through AI voice recognition, AI real-time voice to subtitles, and automatic alignment of the card point, one step straight out of the Vlog, significantly lowering the threshold of Vlog production.

Side fingerprint unlock Snapdragon 730G processor, 270,000 Rabbit score When I think back to the previous generation of Redmi K20 series, I am most impressed by the emphasis on the “ultimate price/performance ratio,” but the lack of support for infrared remote control was truly heinous. The Redmi K30 has not only reduced its price to less than 2,000 yuan, but it has also reduced the price of the 5G phone to less than 2,000 yuan, which will have a significant impact on the industry and will naturally benefit consumers. The Redmi K30 5G version is certainly a good choice for digital enthusiasts who don’t have much of a budget but want to experience 5G use. However, at $1599, the 4G version remains very affordable and is a good choice for those who want to experience the 120Hz streaming screen.
