Redmi K40 series with Snapdragon 888 SoC to debut next month

The Redmi K40 will be one of the cheapest Snapdragon 888 phones on the market

While the Mi 11 is yet to make its way to global markets, Xiaomi's budget-friendly sub-brand Redmi is now gearing up to launch the Redmi K40 - a Snapdragon 888-powered affordable flagship. It may seem a bit early to say this, but the K40 will likely be among the most affordable phones with the new flagship processor - we know how the integrated 5G modem in the Snapdragon 865 pushed up smartphone prices past year, so this could be about as cheap as we'll see any Snapdragon 888 handset. Leaked Redmi K40 specifications include design, processor and display. This, according to reports is said to be the price of the base variant of the Redmi K40.

The Redmi K40 has been in the news for some time now, with leaked renders and spec leaks preparing fans for the next iteration in what has come to be Xiaomi's flagship-killing lineup.

Furthermore, Weibing also suggests that the upcoming K40 series smartphones are going to pack batteries better than 4,000mAH capacity. Snapdragon 888 may only power the Pro version, while Redmi K40 may feature a top mid-range chip.
