The first midrange with 5G
Xiaomi had already warned to launch a mid-range phone with 5G technology, and although many thought that despite being a mid-range the device could be much more expensive than we were used to, the reality is that it was not so.
And it is that the cheaper version of the Redmi K30 5G is worth less than 5,500 Mexican pesos, while the most expensive version ranges from 8,000 pesos, prices that no other 5G phone in the world can boast.
Of course, these prices are not official for Mexico, and probably if they reach our country, their cost increases by one thousand or two thousand pesos, but they will still be very economical.
The world's first phone in this range with a 120 Hz display
The 5G is not the only pioneer technology that reaches a mid-range, but also the Chinese firm has dared to launch the world's first mid-range with a screen with a refresh rate of 120 Hz, which so far we will only see in few high-end phones.
This refresh rate helps us a lot to improve the gaming experience, since the response time when touching the screen is significantly reduced compared to the majority of smartphones in the world.
Of course, in order not to increase the cost, the firm opted for an LCD and not OLED screen, but it is still appreciated that Xiaomi pays special attention in bringing to the market a team that takes risks and that takes exclusive technology from the high-end to the most equipment economic.
Price and availability
For now the Redmi K30 in its 4G and 5G version will stay in China, although it is highly likely that it will arrive in Europe and America at the beginning of 2020, what is a doubt is to know what happens to the 5G version, but in the case Mexico is difficult to do so because the 5G networks have not yet been deployed.
The prices for China are as follows:
- Redmi K30 4G 6 + 64 GB: 1,599 yuan / 4,370 MXN.
