Redmi K40 series will be officially released next month, and Lu has previously announced that it will be powered by a Snapdragon 888 processor, starting at 2,999 yuan, $461.
According to the latest news from digital chat site, there is also a special version of the Redmi K40 series powered by the SM8250 (Snapdragon 865), which has a design with a face perforated screen and a small front aperture.
However, the SM8250 chip is supposed to be a special version of the Snapdragon 865 previously exposed, which will be more powerful.
According to previous reports, the chip will be called the Snapdragon 870 and will use the same technology and architecture as the Snapdragon 865, but will have a larger CPU core of 3.2GHz and significantly improved GPU performance.
The Snapdragon 870 has a Geekbench score of 1034 points for a single core and 3513 points for a multi-core, which is much higher than the Snapdragon 865 and even close to the current flagship Snapdragon 888, according to the report.
According to the source, Qualcomm will launch the Snapdragon 870 as its second flagship product, which will offer a lower price tag than the Snapdragon 888 while offering more powerful features.
Redmi K40 is equipped with Snapdragon 870 processor which will also bring a surprise in the price. Currently, Lu Weiping has announced that the Snapdragon 888 version of this series is priced at 2999 yuan, $461, so the Snapdragon 870 version will certainly be cheaper, and the price will be controlled within 2999 yuan, $461, which will cause a big impact on the old flagship of competing products.
In addition, according to information previously disclosed by Lu Weibing, Redmi K40 is not only equipped with a powerful processor, but also it will bring better user experience in other aspects. With a 120Hz OLED display and Samsung’s E4 luminescent material from the same model as the Mi 11, it offers a better realistic look and is officially billed as possibly the most expensive flat-screen in the industry.
Lu Weibing said, positioning high-end flagship K series has always been the killer products that make rivals fear, this time we will still use the pile to the top of the no short board configuration and it can not refuse the attractive price once again to overturn the high-end flagship market.
