After Mi 11, Xiaomi is now working on a new Redmi flagship, the Redmi K40 Pro. Like the Mi 11, which the company launched back in late December, the Redmi K40 Pro will also come with the Snapdragon 888 SoC. Xiaomi’s General Manager Lu Weibing confirmed this news through a Weibo post. It’s confirmed that the phone will launch in February.
Ahead of the upcoming Redmi flagship launch, retail packaging of the handset has leaked on the web. The leaked image of the Redmi K40 Pro retail box reveals the size of the packaging. It hints that the smartphone may ship without a charger in the box. Notably, the company has already tried this strategy with the Mi 11.
Redmi K40 Specifications (Expected)
Speculated to be the successor of the Redmi K30 series, the Redmi K40 series will bring two models with itself — the Redmi K40 and the Redmi K40 Pro. As said before, the new phone will feature the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 processor under the hood. After the Mi 11, it will be the company’s second phone to use this chipset. Unlike the Mi 11, the Redmi K40 will not be launched as a premium offering but will be an affordable device.
Past leaks suggest that the K40 Pro will have a hole-punch camera at the top-left corner of its display. Further, previous leaks have claimed that it’ll feature an OLED panel with a 3.7mm punch hole for a selfie camera. Reportedly, the handset will pack a 4,500mAh battery with fast charging support.
Currently, there’s very little information about the Redmi K40 Pro. However, we expect to see more about the device in the coming days. As the launch is barely weeks away, we should hear more about the upcoming phone soon.
