New high-quality images of the Redmi K40 Pro smartphone have appeared on the Web, which for the first time demonstrate the novelty on both sides. We have already seen the back panel and the new main camera unit, but now we have the opportunity to evaluate the new items from the front.
Redmi K40 Pro will receive a flat screen with bezels of the same width on three sides and a slightly wider bezel at the bottom. Earlier, Redmi said that it was not going to switch to using curved displays, as this will inevitably lead to higher prices for smartphones, which the company does not want. Like its predecessors, Redmi K40 Pro should become the cheapest flagship based on the modern Qualcommm SoC platform. Today, this platform is Snapdragon 888. The front camera of the smartphone will be embedded in the top center of the display. For fans of the series, who are used to retractable cameras, this may be upsetting.
Shortly after the Qualcomm Snapdragon Summit, Redmi CEO Lu Weibing announced that Redmi would be one of the first companies to launch smartphones based on the Snapdragon 888 SoC.
The main camera is located in a new block in the upper left corner of the rear panel, the main image sensor should have a resolution of 108 megapixels. According to previous reports, the Redmi K40 Pro should receive a flat LCD screen, a 4500 mAh battery, support for fast charging and stereo speakers.
The release of Redmi K40 and Redmi K40 Pro is expected in January this year.
