The K30 Pro takes over as the most premium handset in Redmi’s arsenal, packing four cameras and a nearly edge-to-edge screen.

Xiaomi just teased a pretty powerful 40W wireless fast-charging system, which topped-up a phone from empty to full in a mere 40 minutes in a demonstration video.

Xiaomi to unveil the Redmi Note 9 series with four cameras next week

Xiaomi’s sub-brand Redmi became popular in some Asian markets with its budget-friendly range, but started venturing into the premium segment last year, after it was turned into a standalone brand, much like Poco. Despite now having a broader device portfolio, Redmi has maintained its focus on the lower end of the spectrum, where it continues to get the maximum traction.

Xiaomi’s new Mi Browser can save WhatsApp statuses and natively show your Facebook feed (APK Download)

Much like Samsung, Xiaomi makes its own alternatives to various Google apps that are usually tied to its notoriously heavy MIUI Android skin. In the past couple of years, the Chinese company has moved apps like Mi Calculator and Mi FileExplorer to the Play Store for faster delivery of updates and to open them up even to non-Xiaomi phones. Joining that small list of apps is the redesigned Mi Browser that likely replaces Xiaomi’s Mint Browser, which debuted in late 2018.
