In February, Xiaomi launched the long-awaited Redmi K40 series in China. After the launch of the Redmi K40 devices in China, the company launched the Poco F3, which is a rebranded Redmi K40, in the global markets. And today, Redmi has confirmed the release date of its first gaming phone, which the company has been teasing for quite some time. This gaming phone will launch under the Redmi K40 series in China on April 27 and will be called Redmi K40 Game Enhanced Edition.
Redmi K40 Enhanced Game Edition – First Look
Redmi recently released a GIF teaser image along with the official release date for China on its Weibo handle. The teaser image shows the dynamic backlit triple camera module and pop-up shoulder buttons on the Redmi K40 Game Enhanced Edition. The shoulders emerge from the chassis with a fire button, which probably enables game mode on this device. You can see the GIF image just below.
As you can see, the device has a gamer vibe with the illuminated camera module and the pop-up shoulder button. While the backlight of the camera module is a surprise, we already knew about the side buttons of the device in our previous report. It resembles the pop-up buttons built into the Black Shark 4 line, which was recently launched in China.
In addition to the teaser images, Xiaomi also registered two devices with the model numbers M2102K10C and M2104K10C with the 3C authority of China recently. These devices are speculated to be the two variants of the Redmi K40 Game Enhanced Edition. They come with 5G connectivity and ultra-fast 67W charging.
Redmi K40 Game Enhanced Edition: Specifications (Rumored)
Based on previous rumors, the Redmi gaming phone will feature a 6.67-inch Samsung E4 AMOLED display with a 144Hz refresh rate. Inside, there will be the MediaTek Dimensity 1200 chipset and a massive 5,000 mAh battery with support for fast charging.
As for the optics, the triple camera setup on the Redmi K40 Game Enhanced Edition can include a 108MP or 64MP primary sensor. Although details on the other two lenses are scant at the moment, we can expect the device to feature an 8MP ultra-wide lens and a 5MP telephoto sensor like on the Redmi K40 Pro and Pro +.
Other than this, we don’t know much about the other Redmi K40 Game Enhanced Edition specifications. However, Xiaomi will likely share more details as we get closer to the launch date.
As for the price, the device could cost around 2000 CNY (~ 23,014 rupees) in China. Xiaomi, according to our previous report, is also aiming to bring the device to India in the coming months. However, here it will be a Poco F series device. Meanwhile, the Chinese giant will also launch the Redmi K40 line in India as the Mi 11X series alongside the Mi 11 Ultra later this week.
