As we wait for Redmi to officially unveil the Redmi K40 series on February 25, a Weibo post shared a good rumor roundup of what to expect.
One of the headlining features is that both the regular and Pro versions of the Redmi K40 will get a 2K (aka Quad HD+) display that measures at 6.81 inches. The leaked teaser poster reveals that it will be a flat panel, but nonetheless this will be the first time that a Redmi phone is getting a display resolution that is higher than the usual Full HD+ resolution.
The same post also got hold of some key specs that include a 30-megapixel selfie snapper and a quad-rear camera setup that consists of a 108-megapixel main camera, 13-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera (8-megapixel on the Redmi K40), 5-megapixel macro camera, and 2-megapixel depth sensor. Both phones run on MIUI 12.2.2, and given that these are China units, they do not come with Google services and don’t expect that you can DIY and put Google into them.
For the internals, the Redmi K40 Pro will reportedly rock a Snapdragon 888 processor that is paired with 12GB RAM, 256GB internal storage, and a 5000mAh battery. The vanilla version, on the other hand, will have a Snapdragon 870 processor that is paired with 6GB RAM, 128GB internal storage, and a 4500mAh battery.
While this Redmi K40 series rumor roundup pretty much gave away all we need to know, we expect a few surprises to pop up when Redmi makes both phones official come Feb 25. There are still a few things we still like to know, such as whether it will stick to a pop-up selfie camera like the Redmi K30 Pro, the display panel used (the K30 Pro used AMOLED while the vanilla model used IPS), and whether it supports a high refresh rate despite having a Quad HD+ resolution.
