A few weeks after launching its Xiaomi Mi 11, the Chinese brand is renewing its Redmi catalog with no less than three new flagships. The Redmi K40, K40 Pro and K40 Pro + are for the moment reserved for China but we can expect to see them land in France under another name. As a reminder, the Redmi K20, K20 Pro and K30 Pro were respectively marketed in France under the names of Xiaomi Mi 9T, Mi 9T Pro and Poco F2 Pro.
Features of Redmi K40, K40 Pro and K40 Pro +
Xiaomi’s new smartphones have a lot in common. First of all, all three have a 6.67-inch AMOLED screen that displays a definition of 1080 x 2400 pixels and a maximum refresh rate of 120 Hz. On the battery side, they have a 4520 mAh compatible 33W fast wired charging.
If the Pro and Pro + versions ship a Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 SoC just like the Xiaomi Mi 11, the classic Redmi K40 includes a Snapdragon 870, a chip that incorporates many elements of the Snapdragon 865.
Other differences are to be noted at the level of the photo part and more particularly of the main sensor. The Redmi K40 has a 48 megapixel module compared to 64 mega-cities for the K40 Pro and 108 megapixels for the K40 Pro +. On the three models, this configuration is completed by an 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle and a 5-megapixel telemacro.
