The Redmi K30 Pro is officially coming on March 24 and it will come in Blue, albeit a slightly different shade than the Redmi K30.
The image below is an official press render, shared by Xiaomi VP Lu Weibing.
The render clearly shows a slightly different rear panel design with a circular camera hump. It also shows the pop-up camera on the top.
Meanwhile Redmi Product Manager Wang Teng shared two videos of the Redmi K30 Pro, running the AnTuTu benchmark and the Androbench storage benchmark, side by side with an Honor V30 Pro. The V30 Pro runs a Kirin 990 chipset and UFS 3.0 storage, while the Redmi K30 Pro uses a Snapdragon 865 and UFS 3.1 storage.
In AnTuTu the Redmi surpassed 600k points – in comparison the Honor V30 Pro was slightly below 490k, while in our testing the Exynos 990 chipset scores around 520k.
In Androbench the UFS 3.1 storage in the Redmi K30 Pro posted 1752 MB/s sequential read and 745 MB/s sequential write compared to the 1617 MB/s sequential read and 215 MB/s sequential write of the UFS 3.0 Honor V30 Pro.
The Redmi K30 Pro supports the TurboWrite technology as part of UFS 3.1, which greatly improves the sequential write performance. It should make a tangible difference when copying large files.
