Prolific leaker Digital Chat Station states that Xiaomi is expected to release a phone powered by MediaTek's Dimensity 1000+ SoC in July. It is very likely the Redmi K40, as earlier leaks speculated that it would come with a MediaTek chip, 144Hz screen, and support for 33W fast charging.

Some time ago, Weibo stalwart Digital Chat Station prophesized that Xiaomi is working on at least five affordable flagships powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 865 SoC. The yet-to-be-announced Snapdragon 865+ was also mentioned, along with MediaTek's Dimensity 1000+. At least two of those were phones were expected to be Redmi devices, based on the codenames.

According to new Weibo post by Digital Chat Station, we shouldn't have to wait too long before getting our hands on one of the phones. The leaker states that the Dimensity 1000+ powered MediaTek phone will be unveiled sometime in July. It is also billed to come with a 144Hz LCD panel. We're probably looking at the Redmi K40, as a phone with similar hardware appeared earlier in a 3C filing.

Renowned leaker Xiaomishka also stumbled upon a Redmi phone codenamed Karna a few weeks ago. All of these hints point towards the Redmi K40. These specs are quite impressive, especially for a non-Pro version of a Redmi phone. It'll be interesting to see what Xiaomi has in store for us with the Redmi K40 Pro.
