Putting an end to the flood of leaks and teasers, Xiaomi has launched the much-awaited Redmi K40 series in China. Instead of an Ultra variant like last year, the K40 lineup includes a new Pro+ variant this time around. The Redmi K40 series includes three variants — the standard Redmi K40, Redmi K40 Pro, and Redmi K40 Pro+ in China.

Redmi K40

Both the Redmi K40 Pro and K40 Pro+ feature a 6.67-inch Full-HD+ E4 AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate and 360Hz touch response rate. The panel boasts a 2400 x 1080-pixel resolution, up to 1300 nits of peak brightness, True Tone support, MEMC, HDR 10+ certification, and more. You will also find a tiny 2.76mm punch-hole cutout, housing a 20MP selfie camera, at the top.

Under the hood, both the Pro variants are powered by the flagship Snapdragon 888 chipset. You can see how it compares to Snapdragon 870 and Snapdragon 865 SoC right here. It’s paired with up to 12GB of LPDDR5 RAM and up to 256GB of UFS 3.1 storage. The device runs Android 11-based MIUI 12.5 out-of-the-box.

Redmi K40 Pro+

It is the optics department where the Redmi K40 Pro and K40 Pro+ differ from each other. The Redmi K40 Pro+ has the 108MP Samsung HM2 sensor at the helm of its triple camera setup. The remaining two sensors, i.e an 8MP ultra-wide and 5MP telephoto macro, remain the same for both variants.

Just like the Redmi K40 Pro, the K40 Pro+ is fueled by a 4,520mAh battery with 33W fast-charging support. You also get Bluetooth 5.2, Wi-Fi 6, 5G, NFC, GPS, and GNSS to round up the connectivity options. The devices boast IP53 dust and water resistance as well.
