Smartphones with higher refresh rate displays are undoubtedly the latest craze. It was mainly started by OnePlus when the 7T series was launched with a 90Hz display. Thereafter, news started pouring in that smartphone OEMs are working on 120Hz or higher refresh rate display for their upcoming launches. As of now, Asus ROG Phone 2 is the only device in India that features a 120Hz AMOLED display.
In early-December last year, Xiaomi launched Redmi K30 in China in both 4G and 5G variants. Redmi K30 came up with a 120Hz display at a very lower price. The 4G variant was made available at ₹16,000 and 5G variant at ₹20,000.
Recently, Redmi General Manager Lu Weibing also confirmed that Redmi K30 will also be able to support an even higher 144Hz refresh rate display via a software update. Weibing has also shared a video to show how the higher refresh rate will work on Redmi K30.
Redmi K30 5G might launch in India very soon as it has reportedly received the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) certification recently. As per recent leaks, other manufacturers such as OnePlus and Samsung are also working on higher refresh rate displays for 8 series and Galaxy S11, aka Galaxy S20, respectively.
