Live images of the Redmi K40 have been leaked online, and if they are genuine they reveal a smartphone that has considerably evolved from the predecessor Redmi K30. The camera equipment for the Redmi K40 has changed a lot, enhancing the flagship-killer that is already expected to come with a Snapdragon 888 and AMOLED screen.

Supposed Redmi K40 live images have leaked online, likely originally via Chinese social media. The photos show how much the K40 has evolved in comparison with the Redmi K30, and it should excite fans of the series in general. There are rumors that the flagship-killing Redmi K40, which could end up with an SD 888 and AMOLED panel, could be released around the same time as the Xiaomi Mi 11 – towards the end of December.

The leaked live images show the alleged Redmi K40 from the front and back. The Redmi K30 had a dual-camera setup at the front that was situated in the top right-hand corner, but as can be seen in the real-world photos of the Redmi K40 (see below), these have been exchanged for a simple and subtle punch-hole cutout in the top center of the display. This should leave more screen real estate for owners to utilize.

The rear-facing main camera setup of the Redmi K40 has completely evolved from the K30. Whereas the predecessor had a line of four lenses in a central circular housing, the Redmi K40 sports a stadium-shaped housing on the top left-hand side that appears to feature five cameras and the flash. The words “ultra premium” can be seen in the camera bump, too. It certainly seems that Xiaomi has some surprises in store for the end of 2020.
