This Tuesday Xiaomi finally launched the long-awaited Redmi K30 Pro, which promises to be the real king of cost-effectiveness among the top end of 2020. However, it has a flaw that is unforgivable for some users – update rate of only 60Hz.

According to Lu Weibing, managing director of Redmi and vice president of Xiaomi, this is a decision that has already been taken about 10 months ago. For this choice, two things will have been taken into account: a full screen experience (without notch or hole) and the autonomy of the equipment.

Autonomy is the great justification of Xiaomi

What can be said is that when choosing between autonomy and a higher refresh rate for greater fluidity, Xiaomi opted for the first. The executive claims that even a 90Hz screen would bring the range down to unwanted levels.

The equipment has an AMOLED Samsung E3 panel, a sampling rate of 180Hz, and has support for HDR 10+ with a maximum brightness of 1200nits. However, not betting on a higher update rate can be a deal breaker for some consumers.

Redmi K30 was launched with LCD screen and 120Hz refresh rate

It is good to remember that in December the same Redmi launched the K30 with LCD screen, but with an update rate of 120Hz. In February, it also presented the Xiaomi Mi 10 with AMOLED screen and 90Hz refresh rate.

It remains to be seen whether this is an excuse that will convince users to bet on this terminal. The truth is that if we put the upgrade fee aside it is almost perfect equipment and the price will start at 394 € in China.
