Redmi K40 to be powered by Snapdragon 870 chipset; Pro variant to pack SD888 SoC


Xiaomi-backed Redmi has officially confirmed that the company will be launching its next-generation flagship smartphone — the Redmi K40 on 25th February. Now, ahead of the official launch, information about the devices are surfacing online.

The leaked screenshots have revealed that one of the major differences between the Redmi K40 and Redmi K40 Pro is the chipset. While the standard model is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 SoC, the Pro variant is powered by the Snapdragon 888. Do note that we haven’t verified the authenticity of these screenshots and they may be fake as the number ‘4’ in the model name looks a bit odd.

Reports indicate that there will be a third model in this lineup which will be powered by the MediaTek Dimensity 1200 chipset, based on the 6nm process. This model is expected to be named Redmi K40S.

Both the models — Redmi K40 and K40 Pro features a similar type of display. There’s a 6.81-inch AMOLED panel that supports a screen resolution of 1440p. It uses the same E4 luminous material as the Mi 11 and is likely to have support for a 120Hz refresh rate.


In the camera department, both of them will come with a 108-megapixel primary sensor. However, the Pro model features a 13-megapixel ultra-wide lens and a 5-megapixel telephoto lens while the standard model will come with an 8-megapixel ultra-wide sensor and a 5-megapixel telephoto lens. Both of them will have a 30MP selfie snapper upfront.

Xiaomi has already teased that the Redmi K40 Pro will have a starting price of around 2,999 yuan (approximately $466) which means that the pricing of the Redmi K40 will be less than that and the Redmi K40S could be the cheapest among the three.
