Yesterday, Redmi’s new model named ‘M2006J10C‘ received 3C certification which could be the rumored Redmi K40 5G. The database revealed that Redmi K40 5G supports 33W fast charge (11V/3A), and is equipped with the same charger as Redmi K30 Pro.
Apart from this, the product manager of Redmi, China, said that Redmi will release a phone featuring MediaTek Dimensity 1000 Plus SoC which also could be this phone. It should be noted that it’s not the first Dimesnity 1000+ phone but a couple of days back iQOO Z1 released as the world’s first Dimensity 1000+ phone.
MediaTek Dimensity 1000+ adopts Cortex A77 architecture, which is the world’s first integrated 5G flagship SoC using Cortex A77. Though Qualcomm claims that the Cortex A77 performance is almost the same as Cortex-A76 on the 7nm process and the true performance can be seen on 5nm process which will debut at the end of 2020.
In addition to MediaTek Deimsity 1000+, it may also use a high refresh rate display. The previous generation Redmi K30 features a 120Hz LCD screen. If this phone is K40, it may use a 144Hz LCD high-brush screen.
Redmi’s Dimensity 1000+ phone (Redmi K40 5G) may be similarly positioned to the iQOO Z1. If so, then the price will be around 2000 yuan (282 USD).
