Xiaomi bids farewell to the Redmi K30 Ultra with the Redmi K40 possibly lined up for a Dimensity 1200
Xiaomi debuted the Redmi K30 Ultra back in August last year. Just like with the Mi 10 Ultra, however, the phone ended up never leaving Xiaomi's home market of China. The company has now also announced that it is ending production for the device.
In a post on Weibo, Redmi General Manager Lu Weibing confirmed that the brand is now bidding farewell to the Redmi K30 Ultra. That's about expected, as Xiaomi also announced the end of production for the Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro a while ago. Like with the Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro, Xiaomi is already lining up a successor to the Redmi K30 Ultra, in the form of the Redmi K40 series.
Not much is confirmed about the Redmi K40 lineup at this point. We know that a phone in the series will be powered by the Snapdragon 888. That will likely be the Redmi K40 Pro. But what about the regular Redmi K40? Well, word on the grapevine claims it could debut with the upcoming MediaTek Dimensity 1200, directly taking up the mandate from the Redmi K30 Ultra and its Dimensity 1000+. Or that could be the Redmi K40 Ultra. There's no official confirmation for any of this, though, so we'll all just have to wait and see.
