The Redmi K40 series is just around the corner with the launch scheduled to happen next month. Earlier, it was rumoured that the series would bring a device powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 888 chipset as the Pro variant. For the standard variant, we took a guess on MediaTek's 6nm Dimensity chipsets. However, the latest source is claiming that the vanilla Redmi K40 will use the new Snapdragon 870 chipset instead.

Other than that, the prices of the devices have also been revealed. It is suggested that the Redmi K40 Pro will be between 2,999 Yuan and 3,999 Yuan (~RM1,876 and ~RM2,502), while the Redmi K40 will be between 2,299 Yuan and 2,999 Yuan (~RM1,438 and ~RM1,876). We think that the prices are competitive considering that the devices are going to come with tech specs like a 120Hz refresh rate, 100MP main camera, and 4,700mAh battery.

With some smartphone manufacturers taking out the charger from the box, it is afraid that Redmi will be doing the same as well. However, it was reported that the Redmi K40 may offer two retail box options with one of them packing the charger. For now, let's wait until the launch happens so that we can know more about Redmi's 2021 flagships.
