Xiaomi unveiled the Redmi K40 back in March this year. This smartphone is so popular and it is hardly on the shelf. According to reports, since the launch of this device, it has been been in short supply. According to Redmi, the Redmi K40 series sold more than 1 million units in just 23 days. A recent report shows that Jingdong Mall is now offering the Redmi K40 12GB + 256GB version with a decent discount. The latest listing shows that this device is available with a 138 yuan ($21) price cut. This takes the price of this device to 2361 yuan ($364). The price of this flagship smartphone is still very competitive.
The price cut may not be massive but may just make this device purchasable for some buyers. Unfortunately, only Chinese buyers can have access to this discount. However, if you are outside China but have access to Jindong Mall, you can also benefit from this discount. The Redmi K40 is available in four models. It has the 6GB+128GB, 8GB+128GB, 8GB+256GB and 12GB+256GB versions. As a flagship product, one of the biggest features of the Redmi K40 series is its excellent display.
