As for the other specs, a couple of days ago we learned that three different variants could arrive in the K40 series, with the cheapest version of the series (the Redmi K40) being equipped with Mediatek's latest chip, the Dimensity 1200. .
Then we have the Redmi K40S which should adopt Qualcomm's new Snapdragon 870 processor, a chip based on the Snapdragon 865 with some improvements. While the Redmi K40 Pro will equip the most performing mobile chip on the market, the Snapdragon 888, and rumor has it that its price is around 2999 yuan, which is equivalent to about 380 euros at the current exchange rate.
