It has been speculated that one of the potential smartphone series of the year, the Redmi K40, has taken another step closer to being officially announced. The Redmi K40 and Redmi K40 Pro are expected to feature brand-new high-end chips from Qualcomm and may see the light of day before the year is up.

The Redmi K30 ended up being one of the smash-hit series of the last year, with the first smartphone in the range being released in December 2019. A mystery Xiaomi device has turned up in certification from the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) in China, and unsurprisingly there is some belief that the phone with model number M2011K2C could be either the 5G-capable Redmi K40 or Redmi K40 Pro.

There have been whispers and rumors in regard to the Redmi K40 series for some time now, although nothing concrete has been confirmed yet. However, it is expected that the Redmi K40 and Redmi K40 Pro will be fitted with new processors from Qualcomm, with the regular smartphone receiving the Snapdragon 775G while the Pro model gets the top-end Snapdragon 875 chip.

Some sources expect that Xiaomi will follow a similar release schedule for the Redmi K40 as was carried out for the K30, meaning we could see the entry-level model before the end of 2020. There was a longer wait for the K30 Pro and the same could happen with the Redmi K40 range, with the K40 Pro possibly making an appearance in the first quarter of 2021.
