The basis for the next hit from Poco? The Redmi K40 Pro smartphone is nearing launch • HWzone

A highly competitive flagship device from one of Xiaomi’s home brands will be officially unveiled in a few days?

While we are accumulating more and more statements that Redmi and Poco, a pair of brands launched by Xiaomi with the aim of expanding and diversifying its target audience around the world, have embarked on their own independent path – but it is hard to ignore the fact that these are fully owned divisions of a company The mother who undoubtedly shares with her the full knowledge and experience. Accordingly, this year we can certainly expect and hope that certain models under the Redmi branding will have doubles under the name Poco and vice versa – and soon we can begin to wonder if we want the Redmi K40 and Redmi K40 Pro to find their way to Israel under the Poco series F, as a replay of last year’s moves.

The Redmi K40 models are slated to be unveiled for the Chinese market on February 25, with official teasers already making it clear to us that at least one of them will include the flagship Snapdragon 888, alongside Wi-Fi 6E connectivity for ultra-high download speeds of up to 3.5Gbps and array A triangular main photo in a design reminiscent of the Mi 11 (and different from what earlier leaks predicted).

Even if your Chinese is not particularly polished, it is not difficult to understand the general principle – Redmi invests in upgrading the quality of the screens in its products, similar to its parent company

The pair of devices are designed to offer a Super AMOLED screen from Samsung, size 6.67 inches, at a refresh rate of up to 120 Hz and 1080p resolution, which will be the main distinguishing feature compared to the prestigious Super AMOLED screens with QHD resolution on the Mi 11 devices. The two are expected to be based on 11. Updated under MIUI 12.5 interface, provide stereo speakers, 128GB or 256GB internal storage in UFS 3.1 standard, 6GB or 8GB LPDDR5 memory and 4,500mAh batteries with 33-watt charging support (ostensibly indicating single-cell use, compared to internal cell-pair batteries Charging at maximum powers of 50 watts or more).

The battery characteristics will be one of the distinct advantages in the Xiaomi Mi 11 compared to its discounted sibling, apparently

The main difference between the standard Redmi K40 model and the improved Redmi K40 Pro model is the processing chip – with the K40 Pro no doubt based on the senior Snapdragon 888, while the K40 may settle for the Snapdragon 870 which is a fast-paced version. Ease of the Snapdragon 865 and Snapdragon 865 Plus. In both cases it is a well-deserved choice in our opinion, given that the price tags are likely to be closer to those of mid-range models with much more modest chips than those of leading flagships from other manufacturers and brands.

Another difference between the devices may appear in the camera array, with estimates that the K40 Pro will benefit from the services of a large and advanced 108-megapixel main sensor while the K40 will settle for a smaller 64-megapixel sensor, both in maximum resolution and physical size.

So far we have only encountered the shade of black in the many teaser images that have been distributed – hopefully Redmi has a few more shades to offer us

Do you think that this is a competitive duo that will fit the Israeli market like a glove, or that this time the round corner of the Chinese giant will not succeed in impressing? Let’s talk about it with everyone in the comments.
