Although the Redmi K40 Pro will equip the Snapdragon 888 inside , its younger brother, the Redmi K40, seems to have fled from the idea of equipping a MediaTek processor in order to incorporate the new Snapdragon 870 inside.
So at least its passage through the GeekBench platform reveals it, showing us a more than interesting performance and among its characteristics a processor capable of reaching 3.19GHz in one of its cores, a sign of being the Snapdragon 870.
If we remember, this processor was launched as a variant of the Snapdragon 865, thus placing it halfway to the Snapdragon 888 and therefore providing higher performance at a lower price than the latest Qualcomm chipset.
As a result, the Redmi K40 scores a total of 1,016 points at single core and 3,332 points at multi-core . This would place it well above other smartphones equipped even with the Snapdragon 865+ like the ASUS ROG Phone 3.
Apparently, Xiaomi reserves the MediaTek Dimensity 1200 for its first gaming smartphone under the Redmi brand. A device of which we still do not know great detail but that could be presented by surprise together with the Redmi K40 and K40 Pro.
