In December 2019, Xiaomi launched the Redmi K30 4G & 5G phones, and then the Chinese company launched the Redmi K30 Pro 5G in Q1 / 2020. Therefore, many people are expecting the Redmi K40 series to appear in Q1 / 2021. Today, Redmi CEO Lu Weibing went to Weibo to reveal that the Redmi K40 series will officially launch next February. He also revealed the prices of these phones along with some of their key features.
As we can see, Weibing’s Weibo post suggests that the high-end handset in the upcoming Redmi K40 series will use a Snapdragon 888 chip and come with an extremely affordable price. Possibly, this phone is the Redmi K40 Pro.
He also revealed that the Redmi K40 series will be equipped with a flat-screen and a higher battery capacity of 4000mAh. The starting price of this series is expected to be extremely affordable, starting at only 2999 yuan (about $463).
Although the post does not reveal further details on the next device, we can hypothesize the implementation of a good hardware package that could make the Remdi K40, a real best buy. Just as seen with its predecessors, the smartphone could be equipped with an FHD + panel instead of a curved screen with QHD + resolution, an LPDDR4x RAM, and UFS 3.0 memories, at least for the base model.
Furthermore, the K40 could give up some of the premium features present on the Xiaomi Mi 11, all to make the price more competitive. Redmi will certainly release new nets in the days before the launch but according to the information already in our possession, it is not difficult to imagine that once it has landed on the market, the device can be remarkably successful.
Currently, the Redmi K40 Pro model is expected to use the Snapdragon 888 chipset, while the standard Redmi K40 variant is expected to use the new chipset which will be launched by MediaTek in the next few days. Wait and watch it!
