The display is protected by Gorilla Glass 5 and supports 5G out of the box. There is also a liquid cooling chamber, Game Turbo 3.0, and a 4D vibration motor for a good gaming experience.

The HIEF format is supported, and it also comes with an 8-megapixel telephoto lens that supports 3x optical and 30x digital zoom, 5MP telephoto lens, which is the first true telephoto macro lens and a 13-megapixel which supports 123° ultra-wide-angle lens. There is a 12-megapixel pop-up front camera for selfies.
The Redmi K30 Pro is equipped with a “Super Bluetooth Chip” with Bluetooth 5.1. Xiaomi claims that this can help in expanding the Bluetooth range up to 400 Meters and lower latency. The smartphone is also equipped with a bigger 4700 mAh and has support for 33W fast charging using which the phone can be charged from 0-100% in just 63 minutes, which is impressive.
