The new Redmi K40 Gaming Phone with Dimensity 1100 is set to launch soon.
Shortly after the announcement last month concerning the Redmi K40 Gaming series, the gadget saw a rise in its sales. Xiaomi made an announcement in April that the Redmi K40 Gaming series will be its first smartphone to be solely focused on gaming. The handset was equipped with some mechanical gaming trigger buttons that delighted gamers all over the world. This prominence and popularity are expected to gauge Xiaomi to work on the latest addition to its K series. Moreover, a leak has let out that a new K40 lite is now in production.
Even before the launch of the series, a rumor broke out that another variant of the said phone is set to come, equipped with an inferior chipset. The two models were projected to be released at the same time, but Xiaomi only released the Redmi K40 gaming. However, new information regarding the new model is has invaded the internet, with the source coming directly from China. Speculations state that the new model might be set to launch in the country next month.
The leak states that a new phone that has not yet been announced is in the works, which is part of the K40 Gaming series. Furthermore, it will be equipped with a Dimensity 1100 chipset, an upgrade that is far more attractive than that of the usual Dimensity 1200 from the series. Despite the contrast in the chipset, both models will still have the uniform Mali-G77 MC9 GPU that is based on the manufacturing process of 6nm. However, the noticeable difference is the absence of the 3.0 GHz Cortex-A78 core.
Additional information also revealed that the display of the phone will come with an FHD+ center punch-hole selfie camera that is equipped with a 120Hz refresh rate, along with HDR10+ support, as well as 10-bit color support much like the previous model. It also sports a 64MP main camera as well as a 5000 mAH battery that supports up to 67W fast charging. Given all the said information, it can be assumed that the upcoming K40 Gaming model is much cheaper.
Given all the information above, it is expected that the new phone can come out into the Chinese markets as a Lite variant of the previous Redmi K40 Gaming. The K40 Gaming phone has been priced beginning at 1,999 Yuan or $311. In return, it is possible that the Dimensity 1100 version may be at 1,599 Yuan or $249.
