Xiaomi’s brand, Redmi, unveiled its K series in 2019 by launching K20 series smartphones in China two years back. They followed that with the K30 series in 2020. Now, the details are out and the official launch of the K40 series smartphones will happen on 25th February 2021. The buzz related to the smartphone is already loud due to some of the leaks in the previous few weeks. Redmi will be hoping that the K40 smartphones can help the company to expand further.
Redmi is known to have different designs of its smartphones when compared to that of Xiaomi or Mi. But this upcoming series might be a step towards decreasing that difference. When Redmi K40 (M2012K11AC), and Redmi K40 Pro (M2012K11C) were seen on TENAA certification, we got an idea of what can they offer to the customers.
The camera module is expected to have a similar rear camera setup as compared to the Xiaomi Mi 11. The smartphone won’t be having a pop-up camera mechanism but instead, have a centered punch-hole panel. A popular tipster, Lu Weibing, also stated that this punch-hole will be the smallest in the world till now.
At the company’s official unveiling, we could see three image sensors at the backside of the smartphone. Out of the three, two sensors are almost equal in size. Also, it is speculated that one of them will be having a stunning 108 MP primary camera. This can be the Redmi K40 Pro model whereas the Redmi K40 model can offer a 64 MP sensor.
This new series might flaunt a 6.67-inch display and will measure 163.7×76.4×7.8 mm. The smartphones will be backed by a modest 4,420mah battery cell paired with 33W fast charging. The two handsets are expected to arrive with two different chipsets.
One will be run by Qualcomm’s latest mobile processor, Snapdragon 888 SoC and the other will be powered by a Snapdragon 870 chipset. Other features of this device might include UFS 3.1, LPDDR5 RAM, and more. In a recent tweet, we also found that the Redmi K40 smartphones might come with an E4 AMOLED display and a triple rear camera system.
Other details of this series are not yet out but after just one week, we will have every minute details of it. The smartphones are expected to offer you a magnificent 120Hz E4 OLED display. They are expected to run on MIUI 12.5 based on Android 11. The Redmi K40 Pro can cost you around 2,999 yuan ($462). The lower model of this series can have a similar starting price. The series is going to launch in China first. A date for the global launch is still awaited.
