That said, we're likely to find out more about the K40 series in the coming days. He further added that the Snapdragon 888 5G chipset will power it. The series will come powered with the latest Qualcomm's Snapdragon 888 chipset.
Weibing also hinted at an AMOLED display for the Redmi K40, but not a 3D curved design as Mi 11. The cost-effective flagship will come as another smartphone from the Chinese brand to be powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 888 SoC, after the Mi 11 came as the first Snapdragon 888-powered smartphone. In this case, it will be the Snapdragon 888. However, we're not sure of what exactly the company means by that. We know that in any case, the device will come with a high-refresh-rate. The smartphones in the series may have 144Hz refresh rate LCD panels similar to the Mi 10T (Redmi K30S Ultra) and the Mi 10T Pro. On top of that, the device may not include some of the premium display features found on the Xiaomi Mi 11. Considering this we can expect that the phones will be fuelled by at least 5,000mAh batteries. Previous leaks suggested 33W fast wired charging support. It's been a while since Xiaomi released a phone with a sub-4000 mAh battery, so that tells us nothing new.
According to the teaser, the K40 series will be priced from CNY 2,999 which is about RM1,872 if converted directly. That is just around $463 which makes it a really good deal for those who want to experience the performance of the new chipset.
Lu Weibing, Vice President of Xiaomi General Manager of Redmi didn't reveal information about any specific smartphone of the Redmi K40 series.
