According to the latest data, the Chinese company Redmi is planning to unveil the new Redmi K40s smartphone and launch it in honor of the biggest sale of the year, which starts on November 11, 2021.
An insider under the nickname Digital Chat Station confirmed that the device with model number K11T will launch in China under the name Redmi K40s. It will arrive with JBL stereo speakers, a flat OLED screen with a single hole for a selfie camera, a side fingerprint sensor, and a large battery with support for fast charging.
Previous leaks have indicated that the Redmi K40s series went through internal 3C certification back in September. The lineup will include three models that will support fast charging at 33, 67 and 120 watts.
The junior smartphone of the series should receive a Dimensity 1200 processor; the mid-version – Snapdragon 870, and the Pro one will be based on Snapdragon 888. The insider also added that Redmi K40s will become a cheap mobile phone with fast charging capacity of 120 watts. However, new details about it will for sure appear in the upcoming few weeks.
Redmi will abandon MIUI and have its own user interface
The countdown of the existence of Redmi as an independent sub-brand began in January 2019. In practice, no one, most likely, was going to completely distance themselves from Xiaomi, the companies maintain close ties and sales statistics are taken together for two brands. But there are prerequisites to say that Redmi will have more personality traits.
The differences will lie in the area of software. The renowned insider Digital Chat Station has stated that MIUI will offer a number of distinctive and unique features for Redmi devices. The source did not name what exactly it is about; limiting itself to mentioning that the differences will be of a visual nature; i.e. there will be some changes in the area of the graphical interface. Functionally MIUI for Redmi and Xiaomi smartphones will be identical; but animations, icons and other elements of the graphical interface should be different.
How soon we will be able to see some transformations in the firmware of Redmi smartphones is not reported. Perhaps the work has just started and it will take time to implement the ideas. It is possible that some kind of work has already been completed and with the arrival of MIUI 13; visual differences will be visible, details characteristic of the Redmi brand will appear.
