Redmi K30 5G Racing Edition with Qualcomm Snapdragon 768G launched in China
Following the launch of the Snapdragon 768G earlier today, Xiaomi’s sub-brand Redmi has now officially unveiled the Redmi K30 5G Racing Edition in China. The latest device in the Redmi K30 series is nearly identical to the original Redmi K30 5G, which was launched in China late last year. The Redmi K30 5G Racing Edition features the same design and specifications, with the exception of the new Snapdragon 768G chip and a new Mint Ice Blue color variant.

With the Snapdragon 768G in tow, the new Redmi K30 5G Racing Edition (or Extreme Edition/Speed Edition depending on the service you use to translate from Chinese to English) will offer significantly better performance than its predecessor.
This is due to the fact that the Kryo 475 CPU “Prime” core has been overclocked to 2.8GHz (up from 2.4GHz on the Snapdragon 765G) and the Adreno 620 GPU offers a 15% performance increase. Additionally, the new chip brings support for Adreno Updateable GPU Drivers and Bluetooth version 5.2 (vs Bluetooth 5.0 on the older chip).
Pricing and Availability
The new Redmi K30 5G Racing Edition will go on sale in China at 10 AM on May 14th via Chinese e-commerce platform JD.com. The device will be available in a single 6GB/128GB RAM/storage variant which has been priced at CNY 1,999 (~$282). Xiaomi is offering four color variants of the device, including the new Mint Ice Blue finish and the older Deep Sea shimmer (Blue), Purple Jade Fantasy, and Time Monologue (White) finishes. As of now, it isn’t clear whether Xiaomi will continue to sell the older Snapdragon 765G variant of the Redmi K30 5G in the country or discontinue it in favor of the new Racing Edition model. We also have no information regarding a global launch for the Redmi K30 5G Racing Edition, but we’ll update this post as soon as we receive more information from Xiaomi.
