In recent months, the Redmi K30 and Redmi K30 5G, the first Redmi smartphones with high screen refresh rates, were introduced. The Redmi K30 5G, which has a 120 Hz IPS LCD, is not the fastest screen refresh rate.
Xiaomi, the world’s 4th largest smartphone manufacturer, manages to focus on the medium and upper segment smart phones it launches. The company attracted much attention with its Redmi K30 smartphone series, which it announced in recent months. The Redmi K30 family, which is described as a powerful phone series and has two different models, is also the first smartphone series with high screen refresh rate under the Redmi brand.
The Redmi K30 and Redmi K30 5G had an IPS LCD display that supported 120 Hz screen refresh rate. This means that users can increase the screen refresh rate up to 120 Hz and get a smooth display experience. In a video shared today by Xiaomi Vice President Lu Weibing, it turned out that phones’ screens could support higher refresh rates.

The Redmi K30 5G supports a screen refresh rate of 144 Hz. Lu Weibing said this feature was only opened for testing purposes in laboratories, but did not give any information as to whether the company would publish it as a new update. There is a question why Xiaomi has a 144 Hz display on the Redmi K30, but does not add this feature to the device.
Higher screen refresh rates can make screen movements smoother and satisfy the owner of the device in this way, but higher screen refresh rates mean more power consumption. So if Xiaomi used a screen refresh rate of 144 Hz instead of 120 Hz on the Redmi K30, this could damage the batteries and increase the power consumption considerably.
