Also, the rumors suggest that one of the Redmi K40 series phones will include the MediaTek Dimensity chipset. Redmi GM Lu Weibing in a Weibo post confirmed that the sub-brand would launch K40 series with the latest chipset next month. While the Mi 11 is yet to make its way to worldwide markets, Xiaomi's budget-friendly sub-brand Redmi is now gearing up to launch the Redmi K40 - a Snapdragon 888-powered affordable flagship. Later on that year, the company introduced the Redmi K30 and K30 5G as two competitive mid-range phones followed by a Redmi K30 Pro in March 2021 featuring the Snapdragon 865 SoC.
Weibing also hinted at an AMOLED display for the Redmi K40, but not a 3D curved design as Mi 11. It debuted as the world's first smartphone driven by the Snapdragon 888 mobile platform. The Weibo post also says that the phone will have a 4,000mAh battery and the "most expensive straight screen", something which is open to interpretation but implies that the handset will also boast impressive display specs. However, we're not sure of what exactly the company means by that. Or is it coming with an LCD panel, but with a 144Hz refresh rate?
Redmi K40 will come at a reasonable pricing offering longer battery life and similar premium experience. Previous leaks suggested 33W fast wired charging support. If we take recent smartphone launches, then Redmi is likely to bring a 5,000mAh battery on this device. The phone will be unveiled in China next month, with prices starting at CNY 2,999 (~$463).
