According to the source, the Xiaomi 11T and 11T Pro, which recently debuted in Europe, will soon receive a Chinese registration, but they will be called differently – Redmi K40S and Redmi K40S Pro. However, the Redmi K40S series will have not two, but three models. It is possible that the renamed 11T Lite 5G NE will be the third.
At the same time, the Redmi K40S will be somewhat different from the 11T. For example, it is reported that the base model of the series will be built on the Snapdragon 870 platform (11T – MediaTek Dimensity 1200) and will receive a 64-megapixel camera (11T – 108-megapixel). It is possible that there may be other differences, for example, in battery capacity and charging speed.
The premiere of Redmi K40S may take place at the end of October, and real sales will start for the annual large-scale sale starting on November 11.
