Redmi K40 will turn out to be a scarce smartphone



The so-called “chip shortage” has come to smartphones. Qualcomm has already warned about difficulties with the supply of single-chip systems in the first half of the year, and now the head of Redmi has spoken on the same topic. There is nothing joyful in his words.

The president of Xiaomi Group China and the head of Redmi, Lu Weibing, complained on his Weibo page about what almost every top manager in the industry now complains about – the lack of chips: this was the reason for the interruptions in the supply of some models Redmi K30 in the home market. And according to him, the supply of smartphones will be limited throughout 2021. And then the prospects of Redmi K40 are completed by a Chinese source.

Redmi K40 promises to be the most affordable Snapdragon 888-powered smartphone, so a high demand is guaranteed by itself. The second is the moment fueled by the excitement of Redmi: the company is stirring up interest in the Redmi K40, further increasing the demand. Well, the third factor is the very shortage, according to which the company is unlikely to be able to fill up the warehouses with a novelty. If we put all three factors together, then the conclusion suggests itself: Redmi K40 (and, most likely, the entire line of models) will be in short supply immediately after it goes on sale. Lucky for those who can place a pre-order. But what will happen to the retail sales of the novelty is anyone’s guess.
