While there is no word on the display refresh rate yet, it is likely that the phone will have a 120Hz panel. Rumors also claim that the Redmi K30 Pro may offer a pop-up selfie camera instead of the Redmi K30’s pill-shaped hole-punch cutout. At the back of the phone could be a quad-camera setup with the same 64MP Sony IMX686 primary sensor as the Redmi K30, although the lens layout is said to be slightly different.
