Under the hood, the Redmi K40 gaming version will have a built-in 5000mAh super-capacity battery. This battery will support 67W ultra-fast flash charging.
In addition, Lu Weibing once said: “This time we will still implement Redmi efficiency under the brand mission of the ultimate cost-effectiveness, and use a more kind price to provide professional gaming experience to the public, breaking through the bottom line of the price of gaming mobile phones. Use more hardcore games. Experience and a more extreme flagship price-performance ratio, declare war on the old gaming mobile phone industry.”
Lu Weibing is trying to lay emphasis on the pricing of this device. He claims that the price will be very competitive and buyers will get more for less money. It appears that the company is declaring “war” on the gaming smartphone market. Of course, its strategy will be low pricing.
