Xiaomi has already revealed countless details about the Redmi K40 series, as we have reported. However, the company has since revealed more details about its upcoming flagship smartphones, including their battery capacities. According to a Weibo post, the Redmi K40 series will have 4,520 mAh batteries, which is smaller than the capacities of the Mi 11 and Redmi K30 Pro. Conversely, the Redmi K40 series will have a 20 mAh larger battery than the Redmi K30, or a 0.04% larger one in percentage terms.

Xiaomi has teased that the Redmi K40 series will feature a textured back panel, too. Apparently inspired by Damascus steel, we imagine that Xiaomi will reserve this design for the Redmi K40 Pro. The Pro model should receive a Snapdragon 888 SoC too, along with a Samsung E4 display, an OLED panel that will be capable of running at up to 120 Hz.

Additionally, the company has hinted that the Redmi K40 series will have an impressive macro lens. Apparently, this camera will have a 100 mm-equivalent f/2.8 aperture, as the teaser below shows. There are no details on how many megapixels the macro lens has though, and we cannot find any Xiaomi smartphones with an equivalent camera so far.

The Redmi K40 and Redmi K40 Pro will debut on February 25. Xiaomi is yet to comment on the series' international availability, but the Redmi K40 is expected to arrive as the Redmi Note 10 Pro.
