Alongside the standard Redmi K40, the Xiaomi sub-brand in China Redmi also launched two flagships- the Redmi K40 Pro and the Redmi K40 Pro+. As the names of the devices themselves suggest, the Redmi K40 Pro is a beefy version of the Redmi K40, whereas the Redmi K40 Pro+ is the premium smartphone in the entire series. Unlike the Redmi K40 5G, the Redmi K40 Pro and the K40 Pro+ are powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 5G SoC. All three phones have the same display, design and they come in the same colour options, but the hardware underneath differs, especially the camera hardware. As of this writing, Xiaomi is yet to confirm the launch of the Redmi K40 series in India. Here are the full specifications of the Redmi K40 Pro and K40 Pro+ smartphones.
Xiaomi Redmi K40 Pro: Specifications and Features

The phone has Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 Mobile Platform underneath, coupled with up to 8GB of RAM and 256GB of onboard storage. The device runs MIUI 12 out of the box based on Android 11.
