Back side design
Redmi revealed the design of the back in a short video. The triple camera module is complemented by various sharp and interesting lines logo in the shape of lightningwhich will be a typical feature of this line of gaming smartphones from Redmi.
It is not entirely clear from the video what material the manufacturer will use. We assume that it will be tempered glass combined with aluminum.
You can see quite aggressive lines of the device, which are already typical for this segment of gaming smartphones. An elegant silver color version also appeared in the video, which should complement the black model. There will also be an RGB backlight.
Retractable mechanical buttons
On the right side of the device, there will be physical buttons around the edges, which enhance the enjoyment of gaming, they can replace the touch elements on the display and thus give the feeling of being on the game controller.
Redmi went even further and implemented a new technology that combines mechanical and magnetic components. These buttons can be hidden in the body of the device and can be extended by sliders if necessary.
As confirmed by the manufacturer, these buttons have been tested to ensure their durability. After more than 1,5 million keystrokes they will continue to show the correct tactile response.
The Redmi K40 Game Edition will also have security mechanism to protect them inside the device itself to prevent them from being accidentally ejected.
Parameters we already know
Among other things, already Redmi also confirmed the type of processorwhich will be MediaTek Dimensity 1200, 64-megapixel main sensor Sony IMX868 and fast charging performance is achieved 67 W.
The estimated price is in the range 2000 - 3000 yuan, in terms of 255 - 384 euros, which is a really great offer for such a equipped smartphone.
