Xiaomi’s sub-brand Redmi has confirmed to launch the Redmi K40 series this month. The company has been teasing its flagship smartphone for the past few days, in addition to leaks and certifications. Hence, we know some of the key specs of this handset. Now, over the weekend, the brand’s general manager had revealed another highlight of this upcoming phone.
On Saturday, Lu Weibing, the GM of the Redmi brand shared a post on Weibo saying that Redmi K40 will offer powerful performance, a flat display, and good battery life. A user commented on this post to not forget dual speakers. To this, the executive jokingly replied that he forgot to mention it in his post.
This confirms that the forthcoming Redmi K40 will feature dual stereo speakers as well. In fact, Redmi GM shared this Weibo post from the said phone. However, it is not sure what kind of speaker system it will come with.
The recently launched Mi 11, Redmi Note 9 4G (Redmi 9 Power, Redmi 9T), and POCO M3 have a dedicated secondary speaker at the top. But normally, most handsets use the earpiece as the second speaker, like on POCO F1.
Hence, it is a mystery whether the forthcoming Redmi K40 will have a standalone secondary speaker or earpiece for stereo effect. Also, Lu Weibing only talks about ‘Redmi K40’ and therefore, we cannot tell for sure if all the models in the series will come with dual speakers.
According to previous reports, the Redmi K40 series is expected to come with three different chipsets, namely Snapdragon 888, Snapdragon 870, and Dimensity 1200. All the models are expected to sport flat displays and at least one of them (or maybe all) will have the smallest punch-hole till date.
