K series is expected to include at least two smartphones – Redmi K40 and Redmi K40 Pro and at least one of them will likely be powered by Qualcomm’s flagship processor – Snapdragon 888 SoC. GM, Weibing has reportedly hinted that the price of the Redmi K40 series should start at CNY 2,999 (around Rs 34,000).
Other expected specifications of the Redmi K40 smartphone series are a 4000mAh battery, 144Hz refresh rate, and an AMOLED display panel.
Meanwhile, for its Indian consumers, it looks like the company is on the verge of releasing a mid-range smartphone that will likely be called the Mi 11 Lite, as a listing has been spotted on the BIS certification website. The handset is said to have the model number M2101K9AI and the device is said to be a toned down version of the Mi 11 smartphone.
Last week Xiaomi launched the Mi 10i in the country, available at a starting price of Rs 20,999. The smartphone has features like the main 108 MP rear camera, two stereo speakers and fast charging from 33 watts. Powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 750G processor, it offers 6.67 inch FHD + AMOLED display with 120Hz refresh rate.
Alike it’s predecessors, Redmi K30 series ( which didn’t arrive in indian markets) and Redmi K20 series which were a bang for the buck at the price point at which they were placed in the markets, the K40 series is also expected to give a healthy competition to it’s arch rival Realme’s smartphones which are constantly giving neck to neck competition in the indian markets.
