The competition in the smartphone market this year is not at all weaker than last year. At the beginning of this year, many new phones were released, and there are still many smartphones on the road. Recently, someone in the industry revealed that Xiaomi Mi 11’s machine-sea tactics are coming. The Weibo blogger revealed that there will be a mysterious new machine of the Mi 10 series (is it a burn-out version) and Mi 11 Pro, Mi 11 Pro+, Redmi k40 / Pro, and Redmi gaming phone. Not surprisingly, the first to come will be the Redmi k40 series smartphones.
For the Redmi k40 series phones, there will be two versions, namely the Redmi k40 sporting the Snapdragon 870 and the Redmi k40 pro sporting the Snapdragon 888 processor, instead of the MediaTek Dimensity 1200 version transmitted online. In terms of the selling price, the price of the Pro version will be between 2999 yuan and 3999 yuan ($463 – $617). And the price of the Redmi K40 will be between 2299 yuan and 2999 yuan ($355 – $463). Many people are curious about this Redmi k40 featuring the Snapdragon 870 processor. In fact, this processor can be regarded as an overclocked version of the Snapdragon 865 plus. Many people may say that the Snapdragon 865 plus processor is the overclocked version of the Snapdragon 865 processor. It is indeed so outrageous. So, the power consumption of this processor is also worrying.
Camera and screen
In terms of cameras, the Redmi k40 series will adopt a rear quad-camera combination. In addition, the main camera should be a 64-megapixel lens. The Pro+ may use a 100-megapixel lens. The main camera will be coupled with an ultra-wide-angle lens, a macro lens, and perhaps a telephoto lens. In the front camera, the phone will adopt a hole-punch screen.
In terms of screen, the smartphone will adopt a higher-specification direct-face OLED screen. According to the news revealed by Lu Weibing, the refresh rate of this screen will be consistent with that of its friends. And the display quality will be greatly improved. He also said that it will be the best direct-face screen. In terms of battery life, the battery capacity of this phone is likely to be around 4700mAh. Moreover, it will support 33-watt wired fast charging. Though wireless fast charging is likely to be missing. A few days ago, Lu Weibing also posted the battery life chart of the Redmi k40 phone. If it is like the picture posted by Lu Weibing, then the battery life of this phone will reach more than 35 hours in normal use. This battery life is still very powerful.
