Redmi K40 leaked specifications
Redmi K-series is a significant hit to the company, as they’re offering deadly specifications at very competitive prices. Now, the upcoming K40 series may follow a similar suite, as tipped by a leaker from China. In an image shared, he shows two boxes named as Redmi K40, which are being touted as a general K40 and a Pro variant.
While there are no specifications mentioned on the image, he shared some, claiming to be attributed to the upcoming K40 series. He said the phone could equip a Snapdragon sm7350 chipset, which may be officially be introduced as Snapdragon 775G by the end of March this year.
This chip may be made on 5nm process and have Cortex-A78 architecture. Leaked AnTuTu benchmark scores revealed the Snapdragon 775G has scores of 530,000 points. Further, it can support upto 12GB of LPDDR5 RAM, UFS 3.1 support and a screen refresh rate of 120Hz.
Also, the touted Redmi K40 Pro handset may sport an OLED panel with a punch-hole design, and a 64-megapixel primary lens with upto 5x zoom supported by other sensors. At last, both the handsets carry fast charging capabilities, which is now general even in lower mid-range smartphones.
While more leaks on handsets are expected to roll out gradually, we expect all those be ending by March when they’re officially launched. When unveiled, these could challenge the Vivo, OnePlus and Samsung upper mid-rangers in that segment.
