Xiaomi has already launched its annual flagship, the Xiaomi Mi 11. So we are waiting for the Redmi K40, which is Redmi’s variant of the Mi 11. Well, it’s a rough assumption. But it has a gain of truth as well. The Redmi K40 will hit the market on February 25. And today, we found a video that compares these two. Watch it, while we remind you the selling points of the two.

The Xiaomi Mi 11 is equipped with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 chip for the first time. It uses a 5nm process.

And the front camera has a 20MP resolution. The handset sports a 4,600mAh battery, which can be charged wirelessly using a compatible 50W charger or 55W using a cable.
The Redmi K40 is confirmed to come with the same screen as the Mi 11. Lu Weibing also revealed that the Redmi K40 will have “the most expensive face-to-face screen in history”. It will also adopt a single punch-hole screen. By the way, the hole aperture is the smallest (2.8mm) in the industry. Moreover, we know all Redmi series models will sport OLED high-resolution screens. And all use Samsung’s latest E4 flexible screen.
The Samsung E4 luminous material can significantly increase the screen brightness to an unprecedented 1500nits. The global maximum brightness is also as high as 900nits, the contrast can also be improved. The power consumption of the previous generation E3 material is lower.

At the same time, it includes the highest screen resolution, highest OLED peak brightness. Besides, it also includes the highest color accuracy, highest contrast, and lowest screen reflectivity.
Of course, some models will come with the Snapdragon 888. But there will be at least one model with a Snapdragon 870.
In terms of cameras, the Redmi k40 series will adopt a rear quad-camera combination. In addition, the main camera should be a 64-megapixel lens. The Pro+ may use a 100-megapixel lens. The main camera will be coupled with an ultra-wide-angle lens, a macro lens, and perhaps a telephoto lens. In the front camera, the phone will adopt a hole-punch screen.
