Redmi K40 Pro will have 5 nm chip and ultra-fast charging, says rumor

The 5 nanometer (nm) processor race started and Apple took the lead with the A14 Bionic. The chip debuted on Tuesday (16) with the new iPad Air and should be part of the coming iPhone 12, scheduled for October. Another big name in the industry, Qualcomm, will also announce the 5 nm Snapdragon 875 in the coming months and new information indicates which manufacturers will use it first on their smartphones.

The leaker Digital Chat Station posted on its account on the social network Weibo on Wednesday (16) that Xiaomi will equip the future Redmi K40 Pro with the Snapdragon 875 chipset, expected to be announced in December this year. The information goes against previous rumors that suggested that the Chinese manufacturer would be looking for alternative solutions to escape the alleged high prices charged by Qualcomm in its high-end models.

However, the choice of chipset is not surprising: the Redmi K20 Pro and K30 Pro, launched in 2018 and 2019, respectively, were presented with Qualcomm’s most powerful chipsets at the time – the Snapdragon 855 and 865, in due order.

In addition, in interviews, the product managers of Redmi and the Xiaomi Group, Wang Teng and Lu Weibing, have already given tips on the company’s new products with 5 nanometer chips that are on the way.

With the exception of Apple, which has already introduced the A14 Bionic, Huawei should be the next company to launch a 5 nm chip with the Mate 40 line, expected in the coming weeks. Qualcomm, for its part, is expected to announce Snapdragon 875 in December, followed by Samsung with the Exynos line, whose production has already started.

Redmi K40 Pro: what to expect

The leak also claims that the smartphone will have an infinite screen experience, something that the Redmi K line has been offering for some years, in addition to a giant battery with support for ultra-fast charging. It is worth remembering that Xiaomi owns the Mi 10 Ultra, currently the fastest charging cell phone in the world, with 120 W of power. In addition, larger and more improved lenses are expected.

Unfortunately, there is no more information about the Redmi K40 Pro, but the person responsible for the information above still suggests that the K40, traditional version of the new generation, will be launched later this year and will bring the future Snapdragon 775, successor to the 765, also manufactured in the 5 nm process. That is, considering the history of launches of the line, the Pro model may show up in the first quarter of 2021.
