Other cameras include the main 64-megapixels Sony IMX686 main camera with optical image stabilization (OIS), a 13-megapixels ultrawide snapper, a 5-megapixels (50mm) macro shooter and a 2-megapixels depth sensor.
But the Redmi K30 Pro Zoom version swaps the 5-megapixels macro sensor for an 8-megapixels telephoto shooter with OIS capable of 3x optical and up to 30x hybrid zoom. Which is an experienced telephoto module than the normal K30 PRO?
