The Redmi K40 series was teased before its launch on February 25 by Redmi CEO Lu Weibing at Weibo. The CEO shared an image of a triple rear camera setting with two large sensors and one small sensor. In a separate post, he also confirmed that the Redmi K40 will be the first series of smartphones of the Xiaomi subbrand to include the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 SoC. The series is expected to include Redmi K40 and Redmi K40 Pro smartphones. But since the publications only mention the Redmi K40 series, it is not clear which of the two models will get triple rear cameras and a Snapdragon 888 SoC.
Weibing began annoying details about the Redmi K40 series before hers Launch on February 25. The Executive Director shared a teaser image on the Chinese microblogging website Weibo reveals a triple rear camera setting. The image shows two large sensors, a smaller sensor, a flash and what appears to be laser autofocus – all located in the camera module, which looks similar to that of Xiaomi Mi 11, only extended. The teaser also said that the launch event on February 25 will start at 19:30 local time (17:00 IST).
In a separate post, Weibing shared that the Redmi K40 series will be the first Redmi series to come with the Snapdragon 888 SoC. Again, it is not clear which version of the series will be powered by the latest Qualcomm SoC. However, tipster had suggested earlier that the Redmi K40 Pro will include the Snapdragon 888 SoC, while the vanilla Redmi K40 will include the Snapdragon 870 SoC.
Redmi K40, Redmi K40 Pro specifications (expected)
In addition to the SoC, both the Redmi K40 and Redmi K40 Pro are said to come with 6.81-inch displays with a resolution of 1,440×3,200 pixels and a hole cutout for the selfie camera. In terms of optics, there seem to be some discrepancies between what has previously expired and what the new teaser shows. It is said that both variants are available with quad-core rear camera settings, but it seems that at least one of the Redmi K40 variants will have a triple rear camera setting. In addition, the Redmi K40 can be powered by a 4500 mAh battery, while the Redmi K40 Pro can be supplied with a 5000 mAh battery.
