The Xiaomi Redmi K40 series is scheduled to arrive on February 25, and today the brand has posted a new teaser of the launch, revealing the camera setup of the phones. We’re looking at an “AI triple camera” that comes with two big cameras, positioned vertically, nestling two smaller horizontal holes in between them – one for a camera, the other for a microphone, but it could also be nothing, like one of the holes on the back of the Mi 10T series.
The Redmi K40 phones were confirmed to run on Snapdragon 888 chipset, however, one leak suggested the flagship platform is reserved for the K40 Pro, while the vanilla Redmi K40 will have a Snapdragon 870 chip. Other specs, leaked by TENAA, include a 4,500 mAh battery and Android 11 out of the box.
The very same TENAA listings also revealed the K40 series will have a flat AMOLED panel with the fingerprint scanner underneath and a lone centered punch hole for the single selfie camera. Expectations are the event will also see a third variant called Redmi K40S but aside from the rumored name, we don’t know anything else about this phone.
