The panel, manufactured by Samsung, is 6.67-inch AMOLED with FullHD + resolution , which boasts HDR10 + certification and Gorilla Glass 5 protection. In addition, due to its quality, it integrates the fingerprint sensor.

On the other hand, the power of both devices is provided by the Snapdragon 865 . However, there are subtle differences in the memories as while the Redmi K30 has 6 or 8 GB LPDDR4 options, the Redmi K30 Pro Zoom has only 8 GB LPDDR5 version. Regarding storage, 128 or 256 GB are the options, but in UFS 3.0 format in the K30 Pro and in UFS 3.1 for the Zoom version. Android 10 with MIUI layer 11 takes care of the tasks.

They accompany the 64 megapixel, 13 megapixel ultra wide angle sensors with a 123 field of view and 2 megapixels for depth. In the Redmi K30 Pro there is a 5 megapixel sensor that doubles functions such as telephoto and macro, to achieve shots between 3 and 7 cm away from the object. On the other hand, an 8 megapixel telephoto sensor with optical stabilization (OIS) is present in the Redmi K30 Pro Zoom that achieves 3x optical and 30x digital magnification.
