Redmi is set to launch two of its latest smartphones — Redmi K40 and Redmi K40 Pro on 25th February in China. Ahead of the launch, the company has also started taking reservations for the devices.
Now, with just a couple of days left for the official announcement, the company has today shared a teaser image for the smartphone which reveals its back panel design. It also confirms that the device is being endorsed by Wang Yibo.
The teaser image showcases the back panel, which isn’t a solid color but features a water-like pattern that has diagonal strokes moving from upper right to downwards. This is also the first full appearance of the Redmi K40 Black Edition.
Both the smartphones in the Redmi K40 series will come with a 6.67-inch display with E4 Samsung AMOLED Full HD+ panel and 120Hz refresh rate. They will also have a punch-hole cutout for housing the front-facing camera.
The Pro model will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 chipset while the standard model is expected to have Snapdragon 700-series chipset or the Snapdragon 870 SoC. Apart from that, the devices are expected to come packed with up to 8GB DDR5 RAM and 256GB UFS 3.1 storage.
They will have support for 5G, Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.2, Dual Stereo Speakers, and more. The difference will be in the camera configuration, although both are expected to have AI triple-camera setup on the back. While the standard model may have 64MP primary sensor, the Pro model may come with an 108MP sensor.
In the software department, the devices are expected to be running the latest Android 11 operating system with the company’s own MIUI 12.5 on top. The phones are said to be powered by a 4,420mAh battery with 33W fast charging support.
After opening reservations a couple of days back, the Redmi K40 series has already received more than 230,000 reservation requests. Ahead of the launch, the company has already hinted that the Redmi K40 Pro could start at 2,999 yuan (approximately $462).
