Lu Weibing, Vice President Xiaomi and head of the brand Redmi, announced the arrival of a new model line Redmi K40. He did so through the status on the social network Weibo. In addition, this post revealed some interesting information about the upcoming news.
The Redmi K40 impresses with its price-performance ratio
The price of the device was mentioned right at the beginning. It should start at ¥ 2999, which is approximately 380€, respectively $ 463. Official performance Redmi K40 we look forward to next month. The foremost feature of a smartphone could be the processor being used.
The device will be powered by the recently introduced chipset Snapdragon 888 from the workshop of an American company Qualcomm. It appeared to the world in December 2020 at the Snapdragon Technology Summit.
Other manufacturers, such as Asus, Black Shark (Xiaomi), Lenovo, LG, Meizu, Motorola, Nubia, Realme, OmePlus, OPPO, Sharp, Vivo and ZTE, are also preparing to present their innovations. In addition to the Redmi K40 series, you can also look forward to smartphones with a top chipset from them.
A high-capacity battery is also missing
As usual, this model of the brand Redmi is said to be able to boast an excellent price-performance ratio. That means new Redmi K40 could offer even more leading features, in addition to those that Lu Weibing has already told us.
There will definitely be a battery with a capacity that exceeds the value 4000 mAh. You can look forward to a phone that will definitely last you more than one day on a single charge.
You can also expect similar features as the Xiaomi Mi 11
We think so Redmi K40 it will have a lot in common with Xiaomi Mi 11. It was the first device that is powered by the already mentioned chipset Qualcomm Snapdragon 888.
We saw it a month ago (December 2020) and it brings a quality, 6,81-inch AMOLED screen with a 120 Hz refresh rate, 1500 threads, beautiful colors, support for HDR10 + and Quad HD + resolution (1440 x 3200 pixels). This fact may also indicate a possible fact that Redmi K40 will boast a similarly successful display.
The cameras on the Xiaomi Mi 11 are great, but the Redmi K40 can improve something
We hope new Redmi will bring some improvements in the field of cameras. We're not saying that the ones on the Xiaomi Mi 11 were bad at all, not at all.
Rather, we encounter the fact that the Mi 11 has a primary, ultra-wide and macro sensor. There is no telephoto lens with multiple optical zooms, which could be gathered here.
On the other hand, it is possible to use an optical zoom, which could be sufficient in most situations thanks to the high, 108 MPx main camera. We could speculate about other possible parameters for quite a long time, so we'd rather leave it for later, when we'll know about Redmi K40 more information.
