In a recent post on the Weibo social network, Lu Weibin said that the Redmi K40 will be the winner of the «best flat screen in 2021» competition, emphasizing that it goes «from edge to edge». He also made a cryptic suggestion that the company has «too many» iconic products and the choice will be «painful».

Apparently, we are talking about the problem of choosing between the already popular Xiaomi Mi 11 and Redmi K40. An equally mysterious illustration of this statement.

A few days earlier, Lu Weibin said that the unofficial renders of the Redmi K40 published online are not true, and the real Redmi K40 is «very nice». Official renders or photos of Xiaomi and Redmi have not been released yet, only images of retail boxes in two types — with and without a charger.

From the already known parameters of Redmi K40, it is possible to note the Snapdragon 888 or Snapdragon 870 SoC (for younger and older models), an OLED screen with an image refresh rate of 120 Hz, «the world’s smallest» front camera built into the screen (Diameter of the hole 2.8 mm ), LPDDR5 RAM and UFS 3.1 flash memory.
