Previously, the head of the Redmi brand, Lu Weibing stated that the new models of the Redmi K40 series will meet with you next month. As release time draws closer, the new Snapdragon 888 and Snapdragon 870, along with two flagship processors and an almost brutal price-performance ratio, have become more and more user focus with news about the Redmi K40’s presence.
Recently, some tipsters have revealed the high-definition renderings of the smartphone. Now, as per the well-known tipster, the Redmi K40 is basically the same as shown in the previous render. The new Redmi K40 will adopt a completely different design from the previous generation.
Redmi K40 will use a center punched, a straight-facing screen with aperture and frame width. Their control is very good, especially news that the front camera has only a 2.8 mm hole, which is the smallest active digging hole on the market, making the device’s frontal visual impact very strong.
At the back, it will continue to use the larger eye matrix four-camera module, similar to the previous Redmi K30S. The four cameras are arranged in a diamond shape, and the flash camera is located to the right of the module.
As per the previous reports, the Redmi K40 series will be released next month, starting at 2,999 yuan, and can use the most expensive direct screen with a battery capacity of over 4000mAh.
However, it has officially announced that the high-end version of the Redmi K40 will equip with the latest Snapdragon 888 flagship processor.
Following the Xiaomi Mi 11‘s footsteps, the new affordable flagship Redmi K40 seems to have a charger option. As shown in the picture below, you can see two Redmi K40 retail packaging boxes, one possibly with a charger, and the other a thin box without a charger.
