Recently, Redmi general manager Lu Weibing announced that its Redmi K30 Pro will be delisted. This approach inevitably reminds people that Redmi is making way for the upcoming Redmi K40 series.
The well-known digital blogger also broke the news, saying that Redmi’s new iteration model will use an OLED flexible hole-digging screen with a 120Hz refresh rate. You should know that the cost of flexible screens is quite high, and they are generally used in mid-to-high-end mobile phones. Therefore, the model that the blogger leaked is likely to be the K40 series.
As for the chips it carries, according to the processors Redmi is equipped within the K30 series, the K40 series may continue this style, that is, the standard version of K40 is equipped with Snapdragon 7 series processors, and K40 Pro is equipped with Snapdragon 8 series High-end processors, while the standard version will most likely debut first.
It is speculated that Redmi K40 may continue this strategy, with the standard version using Qualcomm Snapdragon 7 series platform and the K40 Pro running Qualcomm Snapdragon 875.
As for the release time, the previous generation of Redmi K30 was launched at the end of last year, so it can be guessed that K40 can be released at the end of this year or early next year, and the Redmi K40 standard version is expected to debut first.
