Professional-level photography: 108MP triple camera with Audio Zoom

The 108MP main camera supports 9-in-1 2.1μm large pixels, significantly improving imaging in low-light conditions. Powered by dual-native ISO technology, the camera can capture an excellent level of detail in dark areas of an image, even when taken in bright lighting conditions, and at the same time avoids overexposure of brightly lit areas. The 119° ultra-wide-angle lens has been better adapted to take awesome images of landscapes, buildings, and groups of people. The telephoto macro lens’s 50mm equivalent focal length is twice that of the standard macro lenses currently on the market, which enables higher magnification from the same distance and a clearer focus on details.

Redmi K40 series also comes with Audio Zoom for video. Unlike the standard dual-microphone design of many smartphones, K40 series devices are built with three. When shooting a video, this third microphone allows the device to “zoom in” on the sound along with the image, capturing clear audio of far-away scenes and considerably improving sound reception during filming.

At just 7.8mm in width, Redmi K40 series devices feel super lightweight and comfortable in the hand, achieving a sleek and stylish design without compromising on battery life. Powered by a 4,500mAh large capacity battery, the smartphones easily get through a full day of use without needing to be recharged. The smartphones support 33W fast charging, which can power them from low battery to 100% in just 52 minutes.

Redmi K40 series offers a complete flagship experience, sporting a X-linear motor that enables powerful vibrations and quick response, an IR blaster that turns the device into a remote control for traditional household appliances, and NFC support for contactless payment.

All devices under the Redmi K40 series come in three colors: Glossy Black, Icy White, and Dreamland.

Redmi K40 offers four storage variants: 6GB+128GB and 8GB+128GB, priced at RMB 1,999, and RMB 2,199 respectively, 8GB+256GB and 12GB+256GB, both priced at RMB 2,699.
