Redmi K40 Gaming Edition is coming with a new Inverse scale finish. On Weibo, the company has begun actively promoting the release of the new colour option. The phone’s specifications are likely to remain unchanged, and MediaTek has confirmed that it will continue to be powered by the Dimensity 1200 SoC. JD.com has it listed as well, with the listing revealing a few key details regarding the latest variant. Xiaomi launched the Redmi K40 Gaming Edition in China in April.
The company chose Weibo to tease the launch of the Redmi K40 Gaming Edition new finish – Inverse Scale. According to the teasers, the phone will be the Summer Special Limited Edition of the Redmi K40 Gaming Edition. It’s also reported to include a brand-new pop-up shoulder button. The phone has been listed on JD.com ahead of its official launch, with a single 12GB RAM + 256GB storage variant. The sale will begin on July 29th, according to the e-commerce site.
Digital Chat Station claims that a Snapdragon 870-powered Redmi K40 Game Enhanced Edition will come in the future, but it won’t be arriving today. Apart from the design, the newly teased Inverse Scale model will most likely have the same specifications as the other colour options released in April.
