An unknown Xiaomi smartphone, bearing the model number M1911U2E, has just bagged one of the pre-requisite pre-release approvals hinting at an imminent launch in China.The National Radio Authority in China granted Xiaomi the approval for the device alleged to be the upcoming Redmi K30.Unlike TENAA which usually details the device’s specs, the NRA listing doesn’t reveal much about it but it does reveal it supports 4G and 5G network.Hence, the speculations that it is the upcoming Redmi K30 smartphone.We’ve been hearing of the Redmi K30 for quite some time now, although details and exact release date still aren’t available.The company’s GM Lu Weibing first hinted of the device back in October at the Redmi 8 launch where he shared a few specifics about the upcoming device.
Xiaomi’s sub-brand Redmi makes phones, mobile accessories, among other things.The spin-off brand back in August ventured into the Smart TV market with its Redmi TV, and as it stands, it appears the sub-brand might be venturing into the Smartwatch watch segment soon.Recall that the parent company Xiaomi a few days ago unveiled its first Smartwatch – the Mi Watch, and now it appears we would be getting a Redmi Watch soon.This isn’t a mere rumor, the hint comes from Lu Weibing, General Manager of Redmi brand who took to Weibo to talk about the Mi Watch.The GM while extolling the features if the Mi Watch simply asked his followers what they think of a RedmiWatch; How do you feel about the first Xiaomi Watch?Looking forward to a Redmi Watch?.
Not only did it bring high-end specifications to a new, lower price point, but it was also Xiaomi’s first affordable flagship under Redmi.Flagships from other brands weren’t getting any cheaper, and Redmi’s entry to this space shook things up, while also starting a price war.That’s a statement most people would agree with, considering that it shipped with the then industry-leading Snapdragon 855 chipset, brought an AMOLED display with no notch, a big battery with fast charging, a premium glass design, triple cameras on the back and a headphone jack!With the bar set high, Xiaomi will need to bring another killer flagship to the ruthless sub 30K segment.Back in October, during the Redmi 8 press conference in China, Xiaomi’s GM Lu Weibing went on to confirm that the Redmi K30 was already in development, and shared a few specifics about what to expect from their next flagship.The Redmi K20 series had a 6-week difference between its Chinese and Indian launch dates, and that could continue with the K30 as well.
MediaTek unveiled the world’s first mobile chipset with an integrated 5G modem earlier this year.Though not as advanced as Qualcomm’s offering, the aptly named 5G chipset should start shipping to device partners later this year, with the first releases expected in early 2020, and reports already suggest the chipset might find its way into first to a Xiaomi smartphone – the Redmi K30.While Xiaomi has yet to confirm the same, Redmi General Manager Lu Weibing already confirmed the Redmi K30 will be Redmi’s first device to support 5G connectivity.Details about the device are still largely unavailable, however, an image teaser releaser last month suggest the Redmi K30 will have an elongated dual hole-punch cutout.Now, reports from China suggest the K30 might come equipped with a MediaTek SoC – specifically, the Mediatek 5G SoC.Previous reports suggest the device could come with Qualcomm’s upcoming Snapdragon 7250 chipset, which has dual-mode 5G support.
It is already confirmed to be 5G capable, but a new report states that it will be powered by a MediaTek chipset.Back in November, Xiaomi held a small conference in China where the GM Lu Weibing confirmed that the device will be 5G-enabled.He even shared a teaser image of the front which showed very slim bezels and a punch-hole notch with two selfie cameras.As we approach its early-2020 launch date, more details have surfaced, giving us a better idea at what to expect from the Redmi K30.A new post on Weibo states that the Redmi K30 5G will be powered by a MediaTek chipset and not a Snapdragon, one which the previous leaks pointed at.Earlier this year, MediaTek did confirm that it has a 5G chipset in development and should be available at scale in early 2020, matching the Redmi K30’s launch time frame.

Xiaomi’s smart TV lineup is doing quite well in the market especially in China and India.Recently, a popular Weibo user shared a screenshot of his private chat with Li Xiaoshuang, general manager of Xiaomi TV (air conditioning) department.In the screenshot, Li Xiaoshuang confirms that the release Xiaomi TV 5 is within a month.The Weibo user asked: “When will Xiaomi TV 5 arrive?At the beginning of next year?.” Li Xiaoshuang replied: “Quick, within a month.”In other words, the TV 5 will be officially released before November 19.
Xiaomi has released the Redmi 8 smartphone with controversial specifications.This is because the brand has decided to launch it with the Snapdragon 439 processor after the Redmi 7 that arrived with the Snapdragon 632.We are talking about a less powerful processor, but Redmi‘s general manager, Lu Weibing, was keen to justify on Weibo the reason for this choice.According to him, the brand made a survey before the launch of the smartphone, asking which features were most important to users.According to the results, the most important for these was: battery, performance, and good build quality.According to Lu Weibing, the brand has decided to focus on these points in the new device.
Chinese manufacturing giant, Xiaomi, recently released the Redmi 8 and Redmi 8A in China.After the conference, Lu Weibing, Redmi’s general manager confirmed that the Redmi K30 will come with a punch-hole camera.However, netizens were quick to remind him of something he said in the past.In response to this statement, Lei Jun replied: “That was the beginning”.This implies that at the beginning of its development, the punch-hole solution was imperfect.However, Redmi has perfected the punch-hole solution and the Redmi K30 series will launch with a “perfect” punch-hole camera.
Chinese manufacturing giant, Xiaomi, recently released the Redmi 8 and Redmi 8A in China.After the conference, Lu Weibing, Redmi’s general manager released more information about the Redmi K30.Recall that he had earlier said that the Redmi K30 will be Redmi’s first 5G smartphone.We already know that Redmi will be the first brand to use the Snapdragon 700 series 5G SoC and it will be a high-end product.Now, the company has confirmed that the Redmi K30 will support dual-mode 5G.This means that it will support both SA independent network and NSA non-independent networking.

For several months, Chinese manufacturing giant, Xiaomi, has been on top of the smart TV market in China.According to a recent data from Avi Cloud (AVC), Xiaomi TV remain top of the Chinese TV market in August 2019.From the list, the top 10 brands in China’s TV market in August 2019 were Xiaomi, Skyworth, Hisense, TCL, Changhong, Haier, Konka, Cool, Philips, and Samsung.Prior to this, reports from three authoritative research institutions (Aoweiyun.com, Qunzhi Consulting, and Zhongyikang) shows that Xiaomi TV sale is highest for the first half of 2019 in China!According to Li Xiaoshuang, head of XiaomiTV, the company strives to be first in China and nothing else.Lei Jun, Xiaomi’s CEO, also believes that “continuous innovation” is the reason behind the blistering performance.
It appears that Redmi’s latest entry-level smartphone – the Redmi 8A will be hitting the Chinese market pretty soon.We say so because the brand’s General Manager Lu Weibing earlier today dropped a subtle hint that suggests so.Although no direct mention of the Redmi 8A, the GM Weibing revealed via a Weibo post that new Redmi phone with a 5,000mAh battery will be arriving the Chinese smartphone market soon.Lu Weibing in a separate post further hinted that the said device is an entry-level smartphone with attractive features such as big screen, large battery life, large memory, beautiful and thin design, USB-C slot and more.Now, those specs apparently fit the Redmi 8A.LU did not reveal the launch date of the device, however, chances are that the brand will reveal the exact date it will be dropping the device.

Can a smartphone really have a screen-to-body ratio above 100%?This seems to be the case with the upcoming Xiaomi Mi MIX Alpha, at least from the company’s point of view.The MIX Alpha will be released on September 24th alongside other devices.According to a recent Weibo post from Lu Weibing, he seems to suggest that the screen ratio of this smartphone will exceed 100%.His words “…Xiaomi MIX Alpha proves that the 100% upper limit is not the traditional concept of screen ratio…”.It seems that the entire front surface of this phone will be the display which gives a 100% display ratio.
