This morning, when talking about 5nm process chips such as A14, which was officially released yesterday, Xiaomi Redmi product director Wang Teng announced on social media that the supply of 5nm processors will be tight next year due to capacity constraints. Subsequently, Lu Weibing, vice president of Xiaomi Group, president of China, and general manager of the Redmi brand, hinted that new products based on 5nm processors will be launched soon. So there is every reason to think that the Redmi K40 Pro will sport a 5nm processor.
A tipster claims that the Redmi K40 will come with a Qualcomm chipset carrying a model number SM7350. We think this is the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 775 SoC. In contrast, the Redmi K40 Pro is rumored to come with an SM8350 chipset. This particular model is believed to be powered by Qualcomm’s top-end, Snapdragon 875 SoC that would launch either late this year or early next year.
Later, in this regard, one of the Weibo bloggers said that Lu Weibing announced the Redmi K40 Pro will come with the Snapdragon 875. The latter will be based on the 5nm process node. The product will not only have a large battery capacity but also support high-power fast charging, large pixel lenses, and other features. The first batch of the new Snapdragon 875 models will be launched in the first quarter of next year.

However, there’s no mention of the display type, the wattage, and the camera resolution. Well, it is too early to speculate on these things anyway, so we might have to wait a little longer to receive some certain specifications of the purported Redmi K40 Pro smartphone. It could be available in Purple, White and Blue colors. Probably, the Redmi K40 Pro may debut in March.
