Redmi’s general manager Lu Weibing confirmed on the Chinese social networking site Weibo that the Redmi K40 series will launch in February 2021.
Weibing revealed that the starting price of the Redmi K40 series will be 2999 yuan, which is around Rs 34,000 on conversion. The pricing seems closer to Redmi K30 Pro’s which was unveiled in China last year. The Redmi K30 was launched in 2019.

The smartphone is rumored to support a 55W wired fast charging system and a high-refresh-rate display. On the camera front, the Redmi K40 Pro is said to sport a 50-megapixel Sony IMX766 sensor similar to the Oppo Reno 5 Pro+.
It is possible that Xiaomi ditches the front pop-up camera in favour of a punch-hole camera. It is said to reduce the weight of the smartphone to improve water resistance.
