In a few days (February 25th), Redmi will unveil its latest flagship smartphone, the Redmi K40 series. It is already public knowledge that this smartphone will come with an E4 AMOLED screen. This is the same display that the Xiaomi Mi 11 uses. However, Redmi’s president, Lu Weibing, recently explained why this device will use this display.
Firstly, the Redmi K40 will be the first smartphone to come with an E4 AMOLED screen. According to Lu Weibing, the Redmi K40 adopts the E4 AMOLED straight screen to “create a perfect screen for users who like straight screens”. In addition, Lu Weibing claims that the Redmi K40 will use a 120Hz refresh rate.
Furthermore, Lu Weibing believes that there are always users who have a soft spot for straight screens. He claims that there is no difference between the straight screen and the curved screen. However, the curved screen gives a higher display ratio and is thinner and lighter while the straight screen feels better and is suitable for audio-visual and gaming scenarios. Thus, the Redmi K40 is coming to give users a better audiovisual and gaming application.
Recently, the Redmi K40 and Redmi K40 Pro got 3C certification and also passed through TENAA. From the listing information, the Redmi K40 series uses the dimension 163.7 × 76.4 × 7.8 mm and its thickness is 7.8 mm. This smartphone will also come with a 4,500 mAh battery.
Last month, Lu Weibing announced last month that the machine will use the Snapdragon 888 processor and its starting price will be 2999 yuan ($464). According to reports, this price will be for a high-end version and there will be three models. The latest speculation claims that the low model will cost less than 2,000 yuan ($310). The Redmi K40 series will have at least two models – perhaps Redmi K40 and K40 Pro.
Previous leaks reveal that the top version will use a 108MP main camera. This will be Redmi’s first smartphone with a 108MP camera. Furthermore, recent information shows that the low version will use the Snapdragon 870 processor. Furthermore, this smartphone will come with a 4000 mAh battery but no information on the charging capacity. This phone will also use LPDDR5 memory and UFS 3.1 flash memory. According to Xiaomi, this “may be the most expensive straight screen in the industry”. A recent leak shows that this device will come with a 6.81-inch display with a resolution of 3200 x 1440 (2K).
