Xiaomi’s sub-brand Redmi is expected to announce the Redmi K40 series of smartphones later this month in China. The lineup is likely to include an upper mid-range phone called the Redmi K40 and a flagship model named Redmi K40 Pro. Today, a reliable tipster from China took to Weibo to reveal key specs of an upcoming mid-range phone from Xiaomi for China. The tipster did not reveal the name of the device. Hence, it is unclear whether it is the Redmi K40 or a Xiaomi Mi 11 series smartphone.
Last month, a clue of a mysterious Xiaomi phone powered by the upcoming sm7350 chipset by Qualcomm was found in Xiaomi Mi 11’s MIUI source code. The final product name of the device is not known. However, it is believed that this chipset could be debuting in the market with Snapdragon 775G moniker in Q1 2021. It appears that the tipster has shed more information on this mysterious Xiaomi phone.
It is speculated that the Snapdragon 775G is a 5nm chipset with Cortex-A78 architecture. It was revealed by the same tipster that a prototype test had revealed that the SoC could score around 530,000 on AnTuTu benchmarks. The chipset is said to carry support for up to 12 GB of LPDDR5 RAM, UFS 3.1 storage, and a 120Hz refresh rate display.
The new leak reveals that the upcoming Xiaomi/Redmi phone has an OLED panel with a single punch-hole design. It is said to be equipped with a 64-megapixel primary camera and it is likely to carry support for 5x zoom. The tipster also revealed that it carries fast charging capabilities. Hopefully, newer reports will reveal the identity of this device.
