Redmi K40 series of smartphones will be released in China next month, the Chinese smartphone maker Xiaomi has announced. The series is confirmed to come with the newest Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 chipset and the cost of the Redmi K40 is also disclosed by Redmi General Manager Lu Weibing. The Redmi K40 series will follow the Redmi K30 series launched last year. There is nothing much known about the Redmi K40 currently, but more about its design and specifications can be anticipated to be teased in the run-up to the release in February.
Weibing announced on Weibo that the Redmi K40 series will be released next month. He also confirmed that the Redmi K40 series will be an economical flagship and that its price will begin from CNY 2,999 (approximately Rs. 34,000). This is expected to be the base model in the Redmi K40 series, and more premium models with better RAM and storage can be expected to release at the same time.
Weibing has also signaled an AMOLED display for the Redmi K40, but he said that it won’t feature a 3D curved design like the Mi 11. The Redmi K40 seems to offer a powerful battery life and may come at a cost-effective price. There is nothing more shared about the phone in Weibing’s latest post, but the brand may tease more details soon.
Previous leaks suggest that there may be a Redmi K40 Pro model in the line, and the Redmi K30 Pro successor, might ditch the pop-up selfie camera design in favor of the hole-punch display. A fresh live image leak indicates that the Redmi K40 model may also sport a hole-punch display design and a quad-camera module at the back. It is expected to support a USB Type-C port along with a 3.5mm headphone jack.
