Lu Weibing: Redmi K40 series will have the smallest punch hole in the world


The Redmi K40 and Redmi K40 Pro are hotly anticipated smartphones. The two devices are expected to launch this month, and ahead of their arrival, Redmi General Manager, Lu Weibing, has been releasing bits of information about them.

Today, the Redmi top executive revealed that the Redmi K40 will have a centered punch hole for the front-facing camera. That is a change from the pill-shaped hole punch of the Redmi K30 and the pop-up selfie camera of the Redmi K30 Pro and Redmi K30 Ultra.

Mr. Weibing said that the decision to switch to a centered punch hole is so as to achieve the highest possible screen-to-body ratio. However, Redmi is not just adopting a centered punch hole but they say it will be the smallest in the world.


At the moment, the phone with the smallest hole punch is the Vivo S5 whose punch hole measures 2.98 millimeters. This means the Redmi K40 should have a punch hole smaller than 2.98 millimeters in size.

The Redmi K40 series is expected to have at least one model with a Snapdragon 888 processor. It has also been reported that other models will have other processors. The phones are also expected to have OLED displays, high refresh rates, and fast charging.


There are speculations that Redmi may not include a charger in the box but there is a possibility it may follow Xiaomi’s path and provide an option for those who want a charger to get one.
