Redmi K30i 5G features a 6.67 inch OLED display with an FHD+ resolution. This device uses the Snapdragon 765G 5G chip, which is not a slouch on performance by any means.

So this is all that we know so far about these lower mid-range 5G mobile phones under 20000 that could soon come to the Indian market. A couple of them have already been launched in China, but the ongoing pandemic has pushed things back a lot when it comes to smartphone manufacturing for the global market. Nonetheless, this is what you can expect as far as the budget 5G segment of smartphones is concerned. However, as mentioned above, the Indian pricing of some devices are not concrete, but we will get the devices with a somewhat similar pricing tag.
