Not long ago, the Redmi K40 Gaming Enhanced Edition was officially announced. It comes with the strongest processor in the MediaTek camp, Dimensity 1200, and has an independent lifting physical shoulder button, which can bring the industry’s top gaming experience in terms of performance and operation. The phone can also boast of a super 5000mAh battery + 67W fast charging combination. However, it seems the phone will have a sibling.
As a well-known Weibo tipster said Redmi also has a new phone equipped with the Dimensity 1100 that has not yet been released. This new phone will come with a 2400*1080p high-refresh rate centered single-hole screen, and a built-in 5000mAh± battery, which supports 67W fast charge. The main rear camera has a 64MP resolution.

From the point of view of parameters, this mysterious new machine is consistent with the Redmi K40 Gaming version as a whole, and retains the combination of 5000mAh large battery + 67W fast charging. It is expected that the new phone will still look identical to the original model. So the only major change will be the processor.
The Dimensity 1100 processor is built with a new 6nm EUV process, which has increased the transistor density by 18% compared to the previous generation chip. This chip also comes with an 8% reduced power consumption. It uses 4*2.6GHz A78 +4*2.0GHz A55 octa-core architecture and integrates the Mali-G77 MC9 GPU.
On the whole, the performance gap between Dimensity 1100 and Dimensity 1200 is not big, but it may bring more price advantages. The price of Redmi K40 Gaming version equipped with Dimensity 1100 will be noticeably lower.
Currently, the Redmi K40 Gaming enhanced version has five versions. The lowest version has a 6 + 128GB configuration and a price tag of 1999 yuan ($312). So the Dimensity 1100 version is expected to cost around 1,500 yuan ($233) or less.
