Some new information about the Redmi K40 has been provided by Digital Chat Station in regard to the type of display the upcoming affordable flagship-killer will have. For starters, apparently it will be a flat screen that will be used, so those not keen on the ever-present curved displays found in many current smartphones can breathe a sigh of relief here.

Along with featuring some straight edges on its screen, the Redmi K40 will offer a refresh rate of 120 Hz. The regular Redmi K30 could also manage up to 120 Hz while the Redmi K30 Pro had to settle for a 60 Hz refresh rate to save the battery life. So while the Redmi K40 supposedly trumps the Redmi K30 Pro here, how is it an improvement over the regular K30 model if they both support 120 Hz?

Well, according to the same source, the Redmi K40 will sport an OLED panel, whereas the Redmi K30 had to make do with an LCD panel. The Redmi K30 Pro has an AMOLED screen, so it seems that Xiaomi has decided to take the best parts of the Redmi K30 series and deliver them with the Redmi K40: 120 Hz OLED panel with a centered punch-hole for the selfie camera. It’s a potentially bright start for the next iteration, which is rumored to be coming with a Snapdragon 775G for the entry model and a Snapdragon 875 for the Redmi K40 Pro variant.
