We’ve been following Redmi K40’s footsteps to its launch date since June of 2020. Since then, we’ve confirmed some of its specs and even the price of what seems to be the cheapest Snapdragon 888 device in 2021. We also know that there will be three models, each with varying features: K40, K40S, and K40 Pro. The latest leak, however, points out the pricing of the K40 and K40 Pro.
According to the leaked photo, the K40 with 6GB/128GB is priced at CNY2199(~Php16,400), while the K40 Pro with 8GB/128GB is at CNY3199(~Php24,100). It’s worth noting that we recently reported that the K40 would come with Snapdragon 870, and only the K40 Pro would use the faster and more powerful Snapdragon 888. Last month, Xiaomi teased that the K40 will start at CNY 2999(~Php22,500) for the 888 model. Obviously, that’s not the case here. It’s also unlikely for Xiaomi to release a 6GB or 64GB model.
Regardless of all that, we expect the Redmi K40 to, once again, shake up the market this year.
