  • A Redmi smartphone has broken cover on TENAA.
  • The device is likely the rumored Redmi K30 Ultra.
  • It will feature a circular rear camera array and possibly a pop-up camera too.

A phone, believed to be the Redmi K30 Ultra, has made an appearance on TENAA. While not mentioned by name, similarities can be drawn between previous leaks and the info provided here.

Spotted by 91Mobiles, the certification lists a phone that looks pretty similar to the other K30 variants. The red tell-tale power button, present on other K30 models, is also clear to see in the front and rear shot.

These images point to a rounded camera array at the rear, housing four snappers. Earlier reports hinted at a 64MP Sony IMX686 main camera, but the listing does not confirm this. There’s no indication of a notch up front which suggests the return of the pop-up selfie camera we saw on the Redmi K30 Pro. It’s not clear if the 20MP sensor on the K30 Pro will be used here too.

TENAA has also spilled the phone’s specifications. For starters, expect a 6.67-inch AMOLED display with a 2,400 x 1,080 resolution. The large device is also packing a fair amount of weight at 213 grams, but that does also include a battery rated at 4,400mAh.

There’s no listing of a specific chipset model but earlier rumors pointed to the 5G-enabled Mediatek Dimensity 1000. The listed CPU clock of 2.6GHz and 5G network bands also adds credence to this theory. Redmi could offer two RAM configurations with this phone at 6GB and 8GB. There are also two storage options listed, namely 128GB and 512GB. 91Mobiles does believe the phone could also be offered with a 256GB storage option and up to 12GB of RAM too.

It’s not clear when the Redmi K30 Ultra will launch or how much it’ll cost, but we wouldn’t be too surprised if it’s priced within the range of the K30 Pro and K30 Pro Zoom Edition at around 2,999 yuan (~$429) to 3,799 yuan (~$543).
