The Redmi K40 and K40 Pro will be unveiled on February 25. That’s a long time to wait for the specs – what does the Pro have that the vanilla doesn’t? Well, these leaked screenshots of the About screen answer that in detail.
Both phones will have 6.81” AMOLED screens with 1440p+ resolution. Xiaomi has already officially confirmed that they use the same E4 luminous material as the Mi 11, so this is quite possibly the exact same panel (with 120 Hz and HDR10+ support).
Now, for the differences. The Redmi K40 Pro will be equipped with the Snapdragon 888 chipset, while the vanilla phone will use the Snapdragon 870 (an overclocked 865). As for the teased Dimensity 1200 version, that will probably be called the Redmi K40S.
Back to the Pro vs. vanilla. The Pro will have up to 12 GB of RAM (likely bigger storage options too), though the exact configurations are not yet clear. The Pro battery will be larger as well, 5,000 mAh vs. 4,500 mAh.
Both phones will have a 108 MP main camera, however, the ultra-wide or tele modules will be different – the Pro has 13+5 MP, the vanilla 8+5 MP (it’s not clear which resolution goes with which lens). Both models will have the same 30 MP selfie camera.
Xiaomi teased that the K40 Pro will start at CNY 3,000, the K40 should cost less than that and we suspect the K40S will be the cheapest of the three.
