Last week, Xiaomi impressed us all with the launch of an ultra-value gaming smartphone known as the Redmi K40 Gaming Edition. This device has been selling like hot cakes in its home market, with more than 100,000 units sold during the first minute of its debut sale.
Now, it seems like this device is nearing its global launch as the device had already made its appearance on Google Play Console. Although most of the countries in the global market are likely to market the phone as Redni K40 Gaming Edition, but the same device is expected to be launched as the POCO F3 GT in the Indian market according to a recent reports.
The Redmi K40 Gaming Edition will arrive just in time to compete against the upcoming Realme X7 Max (rebranded model of the Realme GT Neo), which is also expected to launched in the coming weeks or months.
As a quick recap, the Redmi K40 Gaming Edition features a 6.67” AMOLED display that offers a FHD+ screen resolution that’s topped with a buttery-smooth 120Hz refresh rate and 360Hz touch sampling rate.
Under the hood, the Redmi K40 Gaming Edition is powered by an octa-core MediaTek Dimensity 1200 chipset which will be paired with up to 12GB RAM and 256GB onboard storage.
For a smooth and consistent performance, the phone is also equipped with a dedicated “LiquidCool” vapour chamber technology to keep the phone’s temperature down during intense gaming runs.
In the camera department, the Redmi K40 Gaming Edition relies on a triple-camera system at the back which is lead by a 64 megapixels main camera, 8 megapixels ultra-wide camera, as well as a 2 megapixels macro camera. This will be accompanied by a 16 megapixels shooter upfront for selfie and video-calling purposes.
The device draws power from a massive 5,065mAh battery which carries support for 67W fast-charging that’s capable of delivering a full charge from 0 to 100% within a short span of just 42 minutes.
