Last year, Redmi unveiled the Redmi K30S smartphone as a revamped model of the Xiaomi Mi 10T. Two months ago, the company took the covers off the Xiaomi 11T and Xiaomi 11T Pro smartphones in the global markets.
Following the latest releases, speculations say that the Xiaomi 11T could later arrive in China as the Redmi K40S. According to Mydrivers, the General Manager of the Chinese smartphone company recently revealed to Mi fans that there is no Redmi K40S, and the company is working on the Redmi K50 series already.
Meanwhile, Digital Chat Station mentioned that the Redmi K40S hasn’t surfaced at any Chinese certification platform. This information suggests that if the Redmi K40S launches, it may not hit the Chinese markets.
Digital Chat Station further mentioned that the Redmi k40S wouldn’t be as good as the upcoming Snapdragon 870 smartphone that Redmi has yet to launch. The report claims that one of the SD 870 handsets will debut under the Xiaomi branding while the other could launch as the last Redmi K40 series phone.
Unfortunately, Redmi fans anticipated the arrival of a Snapdragon 888 fueled Redmi K40S before the company made the shocking announcement. And it appears that Mi fans will have to wait a little longer for the upcoming Xiaomi 12 series and Redmi K50 series handsets.
The Xiaomi Mi 11 arrived last December as the first smartphone to feature the Snapdragon 888 chip. So, it’s likely that the upcoming Xiaomi Mi 12 series would house a series 8 Snapdragon processor.
