An interesting division formed in last week’s poll– lots of people are attracted either to the Redmi K40 or the Pro+ version. One side sees the vanilla K40 as a wonderful cash phone that will wipe the floor with mid-rangers based on the Snapdragon 700-series. The opposite side appreciates the higher-end functions of the first-rate phone.
The last side came out on top as the Redmi K40 Pro+ was selected by 1 in 3 citizens. The lead over the vanilla version is slim yet indisputable. The Redmi K40 Pro is significantly much less desirable, though it still has its fans. Overall the K40 series is toning up to be a hit with virtually 85% positive vote.
Very early sales numbers are positive also as Xiaomi marketed the initial batch of 300,000 units in just 5 mins (the collection was a mix of all three versions). The next sale is set up for March 8, Monday, though it will be restricted to China.
Bigger accessibility may be coming soon, though. Rumour has it that the Redmi K40, as well as K40 Pro, will certainly be sold internationally under the Poco F3 as well as F3 Pro names (and as Mi 11X/11X Pro in India). The Pro+ design may be relabelled Xiaomi Mi 11i instead. There is no main verification from the firm yet, as well as no time table or prices for these models.
What could have Xiaomi done to improve the K40 series? Optical Photo Stabilizing kept turning up in the comments. However, we presume if you desire a 108MP sensing unit with OIS, then you’ll have to go for the Mi 11, which is only slightly more expensive than the K40 Pro+.
