Redmi K40 and K40 Pro: Few days back the general manager of company Mr Lu Weibing revealed via Weibo that the Redmi K40 will debut in China on February 25th. Well, it seems the phone will debut alone as the other two model – Redmi K40S and Pro are expected to debut on a later date.
Ahead of the launch of the Redmi K40, we have seen the full designs of the Redmi K40 and K40 Pro via images posted on the TENAA – a Chinese certification website.
Based on the images seen on TENAA, both the K40 and K40 Pro has similar designs. Both phones has punch hole at the middle (according to Mr Lu, this is the smallest punch hole seen a smartphone yet).
There is also a rectangular rear camera module with curved edges similar to those of the Mi 11. In both the K40 and K40 Pro leaked images, you could easily spot two big camera sensors and two smaller sensors (maybe the 108MP main sensor rumor might be true after all).
All the attention is focused on the Redmi K40 and Pro models with no news about the rumored third and middle device called the K40S.
Specifications of Redmi K40 and K40 Pro
We are expecting to see an IPS LCD panel with FHD+ and 120Hz refresh rate for the Redmi K40. This phone could be powered by the MediaTek Dimensity 1200 chipset or the Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 chipset (other rumors suggest it to have Snapdragon 888).
It’s likely going to have a minimum of 6GB RAM and 128GB Internal Storage. It will run Android 11 base on MIUI 12.5 out of the box with 5G support, about 4500mAh battery with fast charge.
The K40 Pro on the other hand is expected to have more top end specifications and as such will be more expensive. For starters, the K40 Pro is expected to be powered by the powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 chipset.
The device is also said to be coming with QHD+ AMOLED display, 120Hz refresh rate, 8GB RAM and 256GB Internal Storage. What seem to be the focus of the K40 Pro is the rumored 108MP main camera.
More updates about the specs of the Redmi K40 and K40 Pro will be revealed soon. We hope to also hear about the Redmi K40S if there I any model like that.
