The Redmi K40 series was launched in China last month, but it’s expected to make an appearance in Xiaomi’s global markets as the Poco F3 smartphone.

Expected price in India

The original Poco F1 had been launched at Rs. 21,999 and went up to nearly Rs. 30,000. The Poco F3 should be launched in the same price range as well. It’s worth noting though that Xiaomi’s Redmi K20 series a year or two ago, competed with the OnePlus smartphones, so it won’t be surprising if the company tries to do the same this year too.

Expected launch date in India

While the Redmi K40 series had been launched in China earlier, global launch dates aren’t known yet. The phone has been showing up in various certification processes, including the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) though.

Redmi K40 Pro featured

The Redmi K40 Pro is the flagship smartphone in this range, and it should also come to India under the Poco brand. The device runs on Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 888 chipset and has 12GB of RAM inside. There’s also a 6.7 inch FHD+ AMOLED display with 120Hz refresh rate, 128GB storage inside and a 4520 mAh battery. There are three cameras on the back with 64MP, 8MP and 5MP resolutions.

Expected price in India

If Xiaomi does intend to take OnePlus on with the Redmi K40 series, the Redmi K40 Pro will be the one to do it with. As a result, the phone should hit the Rs. 30,000 and above price tag.

Expected launch date in India

The launch date for the Redmi K40 series, or the Poco F3 series, is still in the dark. If supply and certification issues don’t delay it beyond expectations, the phones should make it to India within the first half of the year.
