In 2019 Xiaomi surprised by launching the Redmi K20 and K20 Pro in China (Mi 9T and Mi 9T Pro) with a front camera with pop-up mechanism. This allowed them to have a screen without interruptions, which made them a real success.
This year the Chinese manufacturer would choose to put that same feature only on the Redmi K30 Pro (which would later be called Poco F2 Pro globally). It seems that this will no longer be a reality in this line in 2021.
According to the leaker Sudhanshu Ambhore, the Redmi K40 Pro will not have the said pop-up camera. Instead, it will have a punch-hole in the upper left corner to house the front camera.
Redmi K40 Pro with punch-hole should divide users
The novelty will certainly receive positive and negative reviews from consumers. On the one hand, this was a distinctive feature of the line, and it brought the possibility of having a screen without interruptions. On the other hand, this mechanism takes up a lot of space and ends up sacrificing other components of the equipment. In addition, it also gives some suspicions of durability for certain consumers.
It should be remembered that the Redmi K40 Pro must be one of the first smartphones to be launched with the Snapdragon 888 processor. It is expected to make a cut in more ‘premium’ features existing in the Mi 11, thus achieving a more appealing price. The launch is scheduled for the beginning of next year. The equipment must have a global version with another name.
