The Redmi K40 Pro will be Redmi's next-gen premium device, and initial details of the phone have now surfaced. Notable takeaways include a more powerful chipset than the Snapdragon 865 on the Redmi K30 Pro, more impressive camera hardware, bigger battery, and faster charging.

The Redmi K30 Pro was launched earlier in the year and it appears Xiaomi already has its sights set on the successor to that phone, the Redmi K40 Pro. New information has now surfaced about the K40 Pro, painting a picture of a device that'll handily outperform the current Redmi K30 Pro across the board.

According to tipster Digital Chat Station, the Redmi K40 Pro will offer a Snapdragon 875. Massive surprise. The Redmi K20 Pro and Redmi K30 Pro were powered by the Snapdragon 855 and Snapdragon 865 respectively, so this was always expected. In any case, the Snapdragon 875 will be built on Samsung's 5nm manufacturing node, so should be considerably more powerful and efficient than the Snapdragon 865 on the Redmi K30 Pro.

Another improvement of the Redmi K40 Pro over the Redmi K30 Pro will be in camera performance. The Redmi K40 Pro has been touted to feature Samsung's new 108 MP ISOCELL HM2 sensor. That could also be the sensor on the upcoming Mi 10T Pro, actually. The HM2 is, by all metrics, a better-performing CMOS sensor than the 64 MP Sony IMX686 on the Redmi K30 Pro.

The Redmi K40 Pro is also expected to offer a bigger battery and faster charging versus the Redmi K30 Pro.
