Hardware

Like any self-respecting top of the 2021 range, too Redmi K40 Pro and K40 Pro + they are based on the latter Snapdragon 888 Qualcomm branded. The first was precisely Xiaomi Mi 11 e Redmi did not want to be outdone. It is a 5nm chipset with Kryo 680 octa-core CPU (1 x 2,84 GHz + 3 x 2,42 GHz + 4 x 1,8 GHz). The graphics component is instead managed by the Adreno 660 GPU and everything is supported by memories from 6 / 8 / 12 GB of RAM L at 6400 Mbps e 128 / 256 GB of storage UFS 3.1 not expandable. An SoC that also guarantees full support for networks 5G e Wi-Fi 6, with very fast transfer speeds.

The basic model of Redmi K40instead, it relies on the Snapdragon 870, 7 nm SoC with octa-core Kryo 585 CPU (1 x 3,2 GHz + 3 x 2,42 GHz + 4 x 1,8 GHz) and Adreno 650 GPU. On the memory side, however, we always find 6/8 / 12 GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 128/256 GB of non-expandable UFS 3.1 storage. While not the highest-end SoC, it is still capable of achieving an Antutu score of around 691.000.

The company also confirmed the presence of the stereo speaker, for the first time on the K series, complete with Dolby Atmos support. The intent of the manufacturer is to recreate a 3D sound effect that envelops the user and is as surround as possible.

Speaking of software, the Redmi K40 series models are part of the group of smartphones still with MIUI 12 (e Android 11) but they will be among the first to update to MIUI 12.5.

Camera

In addition to the hardware sector, the other main difference between Redmi K40, K40 Pro and K40 Pro + is represented by the photographic specifications. On both models, however, we find a similar configuration, consisting of a triple AI camera from 48 + 8 + 5 MP. Secondary sensors play the role of wide angle e macro, in order to offer different focal lengths from the standard one (but no telephoto lens). The selfie camera, on the other hand, is one 20 MP.
