In the City of Beijing, China – July 25, 2021 – Redmi confirms a new device will come in August or in September. Yes, in their official Weibo account, Xiaomi’s former sub-brand announces an enhanced Redmi K40 Gaming Edition. However, it did not mention any idea on what chip it will use. For reference, the first gaming edition of Redmi K40 is equipped with MediaTek Dimensity 1200 5G.
Good thing, Digital Chat Station, a well-known tipster of smartphone technology in China, said, “There is also behind the next door Redmi K40G of competing products, very close to the main configuration, the processor replaced Xiaolong 870, is also very strong competitive.”
Since the tipster mentioned that the upcoming phone will come at very close to the main configuration of the current gaming edition, we expect that the upcoming phone has the following: a 120Hz AMOLED display, physical shoulder triggers, a 5,065 mAh battery with 67W fast charging, and a 64MP main camera.
In addition, if put our sight to its poster, it appears the color scheme they use on the poster will be the same color for its color variant.
Above all, we are expecting an additional spike in its price due to the fact that it will use Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 870. But overall, we’re excited to hear more from Redmi.
