Xiaomi’s latest smartphones are from its K series and come in the form of the Redmi K40, the Redmi K40 Pro, and the Redmi K40 Pro+, which have all debuted in China. These phones have been equipped with advanced Qualcomm processors, 120Hz AMOLED displays, and triple rear camera setups, among other sophisticated features. Yet, Xiaomi has kept their prices surprisingly low, with the K40 starting at CNY 1,999 (approximately $310).
All three smartphones ship with the same 6.67-inch AMOLED FHD+ display with 120Hz refresh rates. These HDR10+ certified panels are being touted to have 1,200 nits of peak brightness. The Redmi K40 range runs Android 11 with MIUI 12 on top. All three phones have 20MP front cameras as well, apart from stereo speakers. And interestingly, they all carry the same 4520mAh battery underneath their hood, which supports 33W fast charging.
As far as internals go, the Redmi K40 runs the Snapdragon 870 chipset and comes in four RAM-storage options that include 6GB + 128GB, 8GB + 128GB, 8GB + 256GB, and 12GB + 256GB. Its camera setup includes a 48MP main shooter, an 8MP ultra-wide camera and a 5MP macro lens.
Speaking about the Redmi K40 Pro, it runs on the Snapdragon 888 chipset and will be sold in 6GB + 128GB, 8GB + 128GB, and 8GB + 256GB choices. The Redmi K40 Pro+, on the other hand, will only be sold in a sole 12GB + 256GB variant, albeit with the same chipset as the K40 Pro. While both these phones retain the ultra-wide and macro cameras of the K40, the K40 Pro’s main camera is a 64MP unit, while that of the K40 Pro+ is a 108MP unit.
All three phones are available for pre-booking in China right now, with their release scheduled for March 4. While the Redmi K40 starts at CNY 1,999 (approximately $310), the base model of the K40 Pro, and the K40 Pro+ will retail at CNY 2,799 (approximately $433) and CNY 3,699 (approximately $573), respectively.
