It became known about the price reduction for the top-end version of the Redmi K40 smartphone, which is equipped with 12 GB of RAM and 256 GB of flash memory. In China, the smartphone has fallen in price to $ 345. It was originally offered for $ 420, then the price dropped to $ 385.
The Redmi K40 features a Snapdragon 870 SoC, fast LPDDR5 and UFS 3.1 memory, and a Samsung AMOLED E4 panel with 120Hz refresh rate and FHD + resolution, which has been rated DisplayMate A +. Lu Weibing recalled the slide-out camera of the Redmi K20 Pro and K30 Pro, claiming that the pop-up module is too large and takes up too much useful space. In the new line, the manufacturer decided to release a smartphone with a record-breaking small hole for the front camera.
The smartphone received support for Wi-Fi 6E, IrDA, stereo speakers with support for Dolby Atmos sound enhancement technology, a dual-band GPS module, NFC, as well as IP53 dust and moisture protection.
Xiaomi and Redmi management have repeatedly stated that the Redmi K40 has become a real bestseller and one of the best value for money phones this year.
