Xiaomi is rumored to be prepping the successor of the Redmi K30 5G, which it may plan to launch soon. The name of the phone is apparently Redmi K40 and it has been spotted on the Chinese 3C certification.
The listing shows the model number M2006J10C and it will come with an MDY-11-EX charger, which means the device could offer 33W fast-charging, same as the Redmi K30 Pro. This alludes to us that the spotted device is Redmi K40 phone. The 3C listing further suggests that the device would come with 5G connectivity.
Nothing much is known about the device but a few reports suggest it to be the rumored Mi CC10. The predecessor Mi CC9 was unveiled in July last year, so it is expected that the said device is a Chinese variant of the global Redmi K40 variant.
Xiaomi Mi CC10 was reportedly surfaced earlier this month with claims that it will use a 108M Samsung HM2 sensor in the main camera.
However, we still need more insights on the M2006J10C model before we jump to any conclusion.
The Redmi K30 5G came with Snapdragon 765G 5G processor and it was the first phone to feature this chipset. It is possible the upcoming Redmi K40 5G could feature the latest Snapdragon 690 processor but it is yet to be seen. The Redmi K30 5G came with four rear cameras, its successor is expected to support the same number of cameras.
There is no speculation on its launch yet but given that it is spotted on 3C, it should launch in China first.
