REDMI K40

THE REDMI K40 WILL BE A 5G SMARTPHONE, NO SENSE IN A 4G VARIANT AT THIS POINT

Back in December 2019, Xiaomiís Redmi unveiled the Redmi K30 series consisting in a Redmi K30 4G smartphone with Snapdragon 730G and a 5G variant with Snapdragon 765G. This way, the company could sell the new smartphone in two price ranges as the 5G network was still something not accessible for all customers. However, 2020 has come and several months after the release 5G is now a reality in the mid-range segment. A month ago, Xiaomi unveiled the Redmi 10X 5G with MediaTekís Dimensity 820 and an affordable price tag. Now, the company is gearing up to launch the new Redmi K40, and launching a 4G variant is pointless.

THE REDMI K30 PROBABLY WAS THE LAST 4G-ONLY SMARTPHONE IN THE K-SERIES

The Xiaomi M2006J10C will probably be revealed as Redmi K40 or perhaps Mi CC10. This handset was spotted at the 3C department with a 33W charger, the same that comes in the Redmi K30 Pro retail box. Now, the very same handset has appeared on MIIT. The Chinese wireless regulator confirmed a pretty important detail the handset is certified for usage on 5G networks. Itís not a surprise to see the alleged Redmi K40 supporting the new network as the Redmi K30 5G and K30 Pro already support this new connectivity standard. However, it does imply that this time we wonít see a 4G variant of the mid-range phone.


It makes sense for Xiaomi to ditch the 4G devices in the K-series. Apart from being rebranded as Poco X2 in India, the 4G variant of the K30 series is the less interesting device of the series. To make things even more confusing, Redmi launched a Redmi K30i last month which basically is a Redmi K30 5G with a different name. In China, buying a Redmi K40 4G is pointless.

REDMI K40 KEY FEATURES LEAKED, COMING WITH DIMENSITY 1000+

The first half of 2020 is about to pass. So itís logical we are getting more and more news about the new flagship devices of major smartphone manufacturers. A few days ago, Twitter user @techyvillage disclosed the configuration information of the Redmi K40. Itís going to continue Redmiís cost-effective strategy. Thatís why though itís not launched yet and this is not an official information, but it has already managed to make a stir around it.


Anyways, as the source claims the Redmi K40 will switch to the MediaTek Dimensity 1000+ high-end 5G chip. One of the advantages of this chip is the support for 144Hz refresh rate screen. So itís logical the Redmi K40 will come with such a screen. But it is said to use an LCD screen. Apart from the aforementioned features, the main camera on the back will use a SONY IMX686 CMOS, which provides a 64MP high-res shooting. At last, the source says our protagonist will support 33W fast charging option.

I tot Qualcomm CEO said sometime in April there will not be any new release for flagship SoC or 865+ SoC coming out until next year SD875... That is why the makers nowadays are coming out with higher tier mid-range models using SD765G and SD768 SoC ....

Apparently things have changed. All rumours, no official announcements though.
