Over the past few days, there have been several teasers regarding the upcoming Redmi K40 gaming version. As Redmi’s first gaming smartphone, the company is putting in a lot of work to have a perfect start to the gaming business.
This time, there is another official teaser that reveals some details about the antenna of this device. The latest teaser shows that the Redmi K40 gaming version comes with an independent gaming antenna set. In addition, this smartphone also uses a new set of dedicated WiFi antennas for gaming.
According to the company, this design is necessary to ensure stability during gaming. Furthermore, it also has a mobile network antenna, two conventional WiFi antennas, a navigation antenna. With this configuration, the Redmi K40 gaming version has a total of 12 antennas.
The design is such that the conventional vertical antennas remain on both sides. Thus, the company had to position the mobile network and WiFi antennas on the lower part of the device. This ensures that there is no interference with the horizontal and vertical grips of the phone. It also ensures that there is stable reception and high signal transmission.
As we can see from the teasers, the device has dual upper and lower stereo speakers. It also comes with an X-axis linear motor. The SIM card slot of the phone is at the bottom of the phone. However, there is no 3.5mm headphone port.
From what we already know, the Redmi K40 gaming version comes with a Dimensity 1200 SoC. This smartphone will also ship with an AMOLED flexible straight screen with a 120Hz refresh.
Furthermore, it comes with a three-finger touch sampling rate of 480Hz. In addition, the phone has two pop-up shoulder buttons, optimized for gaming control, and also supports the 90fps high frame rate mode of “Honor of Kings”.
The flexible screen adopts the COP packaging method to achieve an ultra-narrow bezel. It has a width of only 1.8mm on the left, right, and top sides. However, the chin is about 2.7 mm.
Lu Weibing also released a schematic diagram showing the frame width of the gaming version of the Redmi K40. This phone will be officially released online at 19:30 on April 27. According to Redmi, this smartphone is coming with a competitive price. We expect this device to be cheaper than the competition
