According to the Redmi brand general manager Lu Weibing, the new Redmi K40 series models will come next month. We know that there will be at least two versions powered by the new Snapdragon 888 and Snapdragon 870 chips. Apart from this, we also heard that the phone’s price will start at 2999 yuan ($434). Well, as for today, we got information that this series will hit the market on February 25.
As the render shows, the new Redmi K40 will adopt a completely different design from the predecessor. Moreover, the front camera of the machine has a hole of only about 2.8mm, which is the smallest proactive hole on the market. Thus, this handset will have an eye-catching frontal visual impact. On the back of the fuselage, the machine will continue the big-eye matrix quad-camera module similar to the previous Redmi K30S. The four camera sensors are arranged in a diamond shape, and the flash is located on the right side of the camera module.

In other aspects, the new Redmi K40 series will use a straight screen. The latter uses Samsung’s latest AMOLED luminescent material, and it also supports a 120Hz refresh rate. Under the hood, the Redmi K40 Pro will sport the Snapdragon 888 processor, while the standard variant will feature the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 processor. If no accident, the quad-camera on the back will have a 100-megapixel main camera. The battery will have a 4000mAh capacity or more.
At last, it is expected that the Redmi K40 will use two packaging solutions with charger and without charger. However, all these are rumors and there are not many news coming our way officially.
