Android version and market relevance

The company Xiaomi in March 2022 officially announced its new smartphone Xiaomi Redmi K40S 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 12, which did not receive any version updates. And besides, it is important to note immediately that the model Xiaomi Redmi K40S supports two SIM cards (view all smartphones with 2 sim cards in the catalog).

Screen, body and battery

It is worth paying attention to good 6.67-inch capacitive AMOLED touchscreen smartphone Xiaomi Redmi K40S with display refresh rate 120 Hz. A real shoveler, which is great for watching videos, surfing the Internet and full-screen games. You will be very surprised at how much information is placed on one screen. But, unfortunately, with one hand you will not be comfortable with using a smartphone. In addition, Xiaomi Redmi K40S has very small frames around the screen (speaking in numbers, the screen occupies from 80% to 90% of the area of the entire front panel. And an almost invisible hole in the screen adds recognition to the smartphone and increases the screen area, but does not increase the physical size. The thickness of the case is 7.7 mm. This also accommodated a battery capacity of 4 500 mAh.

Main camera and selfie camera

The main camera has several modules (triple camera smartphones): 48 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 K40S has one module: 20 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

Smartphone received 8-core processor Snapdragon 870 5G (7 nm). If you want to assess the speed of the smartphone and its performance, then do not forget to see how much RAM is installed in it. Xiaomi Redmi K40S received 6 GB of RAM, and there is another version of this smartphone with 8 GB of RAM.

And there are options with built-in memory. You can choose 128 GB or 256 GB. .

Price for Xiaomi Redmi K40S: buy or not to buy?

A huge new smartphone Xiaomi Redmi K40S you can choose and buy in any store at a price of $280. Sales start at March 2022.

We made a brief review of this model, we also recommend that you look at photos and videos about it. In our opinion, the smartphone turned out to be very powerful in performance, but with a very steep camera.

And if you are not suitable for buying Xiaomi Redmi K40S, then choose any other smartphone from the price segment “Below average smartphones from $200 to $300” or directory of current DROID smartphones.
