Redmi K40 may not have a charger in the box

Recently, we saw the packaging box of the Redmi K40 and the image is from Lu Weibing. According to his Weibo post, there are two versions – one is thick and the other is thin. Looking at the images, the thick box probably has a charger in it while the thin box does not.

Lu Weibing said, “Thick or thin? This is a difficult choice. Ask everyone for your opinion…We know that Xiaomi Mi 11 has launched two packaging versions, one is to send the charger (gallium nitride charger), the other is not, and the price of the two is the same, so I guess Redmi K40 may also adopt this solution”.
