Earlier this year, the Xiaomi backed Redmi launched its 2020 flagship dubbed the Redmi k30 pro. However, the company has confirmed that the Smartphone is being discontinued less than a year after its launch. The news was recently announced by Lu Weibing, General Manager of the Redmi brand, and was confirmed by the President of Xiaomi China.
This is not the first flagship that is being discontinued by the company. Last week, Xiaomi revealed that the Mi 10 pro 5G, one of two flagships that Xiaomi announced in the first half of the year, is being discontinued eight months after its release.
Neither of the phones is now listed on Xiaomi’s official website and is listed as “Out of Stock” on Xiaomi’s official store on partner sites.
Both Smartphones came with top-notch specifications, including a large display, a big battery, Snapdragon 865, and a quad-camera setup.
The company has not revealed the reason behind the sudden discontinuation. However, successors for both smartphones are about to be announced (probably later this month). So, maybe Xiaomi is just clearing the ground for upcoming smartphones, even though it has never done this before. Nevertheless, more details about the decision will be revealed with time.
