Lu Weibong, who is the president of Xiaomi Group China and the CEO of Redmi, has left a new message on his Weibo page regarding the Redmi K40 smartphone.
He stated that the Redmi K30 Extreme Edition based on Dimensity 1000+ turned out to be an incredibly popular smartphone, however, a new flagship Dimensity platform will be released very soon, which will appear on the company’s smartphone.
We will remind, it was previously announced in the Redmi K40 will use a single-chip system Snapdragon 888, while the company promises to release the cheapest flagship on this platform. Its price will be $ 465.
Now a clarification has appeared: Snapdragon 888 will be used in the older model Redmi K40 Pro, and the standard model Redmi K40 will get the new flagship MediaTek platform, which should be called Dimensity 1200.
Earlier it was reported that Dimensity 1200 will outperform last year’s flagship SoC Snapdragon 865, which was clocked at 2.84 Hz. The Dimensity 1200 will receive an improved fifth-generation modem, as well as an improved image processing processor (ISP) that will allow phones to take better photos.
The presentation of the Redmi K40 is expected in February.
