Redmi K40 Pro tipped to feature 108MP camera; total 3 models reportedly launching in Redmi K40 lineup

Highlights
  • The Redmi K40 series will consist of three devices: Redmi K40, Redmi K40S, and Redmi K40 Pro.
  • The Redmi K40 Pro will come with a 108MP camera sensor.
  • Xiaomi could launch the Redmi K40 series in the coming weeks.

Several reports from earlier prophesised that the Redmi K40 series would consist of at least three devices. A new leak from seasoned Weibo leaker Digital Chat Station sheds some light on the nomenclature. As expected, the top-of-the-line variant will be called the Redmi K40 Pro, followed by the Redmi K40 and the Redmi K40S. While previous reports have confirmed that the Redmi K40 Pro will run the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 chipset, Digital Chat Station adds that it will feature a 108MP camera module too. It is hardly surprising, considering that the Redmi K-series devices draw heavy inspiration from the Mi line of flagships.

Redmi K40 series specifications

Things get a little overwhelming when trying to determine the Redmi K40 series specifications if we look at each model. On the chipset side of things, we’re likely looking at the Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 on the Redmi K40 and Snapdragon 775 on the Redmi K40S. That leaves us with the MediaTek Dimensity 1200-powered variant. If last year’s release cycle is anything to go by, it will likely be unveiled at a later point alongside the Redmi K40 Ultra (tentative). 

We can expect the Redmi K40 Pro camera configuration to mimic those of the Xiaomi Mi 11. However, it could use a previous-generation 108MP ISOCELL sensor to distinguish itself from the Mi 11. We can expect it to be paired with an ultra-wide-angle lens, a macro lens, and a depth sensor. Previous reports told us that at least one Redmi K40 variant will come with a 120Hz LCD screen. We can expect the series to be launched in the coming weeks.
