According to the image, the Redmi K40 will be powered by the flagship Snapdragon 888 chipset. The smartphone will pack a battery that is “more than 4,000mAh.” In addition, it will feature the “most expensive straight screen”, which seems to suggest a display similar to the Mi 11. However, with a flat-screen instead of curved sides. To recall, the Mi 11 was launched with a 2K 120Hz AMOLED display.
There’ nothing else about the phone in Weibing’s latest post, but the company should tease more details soon. On the other hand, past leaks suggest a Pro model in the series. It can ditch the pop-up selfie camera design in favor of the hole-punch display.
The Redmi K40 model may also feature a hole-punch display design and a quad-camera setup at the back. It is likely to support a USB Type-C port alongside a 3.5mm headphone jack.
