At the same time, Realme will have the 3.5mm jack even on their flagship, along with a bigger battery. Xiaomi is quickly getting irrelevant with their models.
Dissapointed at least the pro variant does't contains telephoto lens. K20 was so better it had a telephoto back then
Will there a global version for the Pro+? I heard Xiaomi no longer allows Google services on their Chinese version of phones?
Anonymous, 25 Feb 2021Now, OnePlus is the only one left to make a Pro Plus phone. Where did you get this information? I don't think it is official yet. The same thing about fingerprint sensor being side mounted
Anders, 25 Feb 2021No headphone jack, no micro SD = No BuyWhat do u expect? Many smartphone companies started to ditch the 3.5 jack and micro SD. Even Samsung ditched the micro sd on their latest flagships. Soon, you'll have to adapt with the new trend
K40Pro equal to K40 with Sd888 chip and IMX686 main camera
K40Pro+ equal to a 12+256GB version of K40Pro with different main camera(HM2 sensor)
The K40 is the best to buy,since Sd888 performance is not much better than Sd865/870.
Shadocx, 25 Feb 2021Then see the price rise.i dont think theres a price rise either, as those additions would be cheap anyway, the price would still be the same if it had those.
to be fair, the specs arent really that impressive, and especially that 9 to 1 binning sensor? how about they put 4 in 1 instead, because the 12mp photos arent that enough compared to the 27mp sensor in their previous phones that used the same (but older generation) sensors.
r31ya, 25 Feb 2021So a Redmi without MicroSD and 3.5mm jack? It should be called Mi K40Agree - nothing to do with feature rich Redmi Kx0 series
Anonymous, 25 Feb 2021biometry was not downgrade. faster and better placed now. Not only it's a doungrade but disfunctional one. I guess you never used side mounted finger print scanner which even at it best is hit and miss thanks to small futprint area. I never liked the flashing lights around under display one on K30 Pro but let's call that aesthetic related opinion.
Was loving the phone and thinking about going for it until I saw 'side mounted fingerprint scanner' damn.. that's very bad, on screen fingerprint would have been.
This phone is cool in all aspects for me, except for the fingerprint.
Seams the K40 and K40 Pro actually are the big downgrades compared to K30 Pro 8/128. Even if display is hi refresh rate with new ones. From finger print sensor (under display - side mounted) to cut out over pop up camera to no 3.5 mm jack and smaller battery. SoC is arguably the same thing so considering old one is now cheaper they won't sell much of those.
Retail price of k40 is $310.
Components of iphone 12 are worth $350, also $550 for s20 ultra.
Still you see people here demanding non-chinese brands to charge same price chinese phones are sold.
