Android version and market relevance

The company Xiaomi in April 2021 officially announced its new smartphone Xiaomi Redmi K40 Gaming in the series of mobile devices Xiaomi Redmi. In our subjective opinion, this year one of the important parameters for smartphones has become support for 5G networks, and this new model has received such a characteristic. As well as many other smartphones with support for 5G networks in our catalog.

“Out of the box” on the new smartphone installed Android 11, which did not receive any version updates. And besides, it is important to note immediately that the model Xiaomi Redmi K40 Gaming supports two SIM cards (view all smartphones with 2 sim cards in the catalog).

Screen, body and battery

The case Xiaomi Redmi K40 Gaming has got interesting features: very thin side frames, cutout above the screen for a selfie camera and sensors, protection from dust and water (in the standards allowed by the standard, the smartphone can be influenced by water, submerged, etc.).

The screen Xiaomi Redmi K40 Gaming is made using the OLED technology, has a diagonal 6.67 inches and refresh rate 120 Hz. If the smoothness of the interface is important for you (especially in mobile games), then you need to choose smartphones with screens that have a refresh rate higher than 120 times per second. Such a very large main touch screen certainly affects the dimensions of the case, which has a thickness of 8.3 mm. Also inside the case is a battery with a capacity of 5 065 mAh. This model could become a flip smartphone and get into our catalog on a separate page, where all phones with flexible screens are collected. Unfortunately, this did not happen. And therefore, if you are interested in smartphones with such top-end characteristics, we advise you to look at them in our catalog and get a deeper understanding in which direction the entire mobile electronics industry is moving. Perhaps, in a couple of years, every second person on the planet will have such flip smartphones.

Main camera and selfie camera

The main camera has several modules (triple camera smartphones): 64 MP Wide + 8 MP UltraWide + 2 MP Macro and, as usual, it is located on the back of the smartphone. When a smartphone camera has multiple lenses, it allows zooming with high image quality. You can also take photos with the Bokeh effect. This is an effect where the background is blurred and the subject in the foreground stands out very nicely. It’s better to see it once than hear about it a hundred times, so look at examples of photos from this smartphone. The frontcamera at Xiaomi Redmi K40 Gaming has one module: 16 MP Wide. And this, of course, is very good. Your selfies will look beautiful and high quality. This model has a front camera as usual at the top of the screen, like 99.9% of all smartphones. But, if this makes you bored, then we can offer smartphones with pop-up front camera. In these models, the front camera is located inside the body and goes up only when you activate the front camera mode. It sounds interesting, but how convenient it is and how long this mechanism will work is not yet clear.

Processor and Internal Memory

The more cores the smartphone processor has, the faster it works. Of course, do not forget that the applications should be optimized for the version of Android. But if we are talking about technical characteristics, then the processor here 8-core on the chipset MediaTek MT6893 Dimensity 1200 5G (6 nm). RAM 6 GB, but if you want, you can buy a version of this smartphone on 12 GB of RAM and, perhaps it will work faster.

Built-in memory for storing different data (photo, video, applications, music, etc.) here 128 GB, but there are still options for 256 GB. You choose which version of the smartphone to buy, so it was comfortable to use it. Do not forget that the update of the software version will be available for your smartphone, and for this you need to download it first, and if the space is not enough, it will not be able to update. Therefore, we advise you before buying to think about how much internal memory you need.

Price for Xiaomi Redmi K40 Gaming: buy or not to buy?

$315 is the price for Xiaomi Redmi K40 Gaming at the start of sales. For this money you get a smartphone with a fast processor, a huge touch screen, with a very cool main camera that makes amazing photos and videos, and with a cool selfie camera. And with such characteristics, the smartphone got into the price segment “Middle class smartphones from $300 to $400”, where you can choose any other similar model for a same price.

And how important is the battery capacity in your smartphone? Here is the case that it is in Xiaomi Redmi K40 Gaming that a very powerful battery is installed. And, if you need a smartphone with a very long mode of operation from one battery charge, then we recommend looking at this model, or similar smartphones with a powerful battery.

Xiaomi Redmi K40 Gaming will be available after the beginning of official sales. We always recommend that you look at the smartphone before you buy it to make sure that it fits you in all respects — screen size, case materials and build quality, speed and smoothness of the interface, photo and video quality, etc. After you choose a model, then you already look at the different offers from the sellers — you can buy it on the Internet or in the offline electronics supermarket. Buy where you prefer, where there are stocks and discounts, and where the seller guarantees the service of the device under warranty.
