Last month, Redmi took the wraps off the Redmi K40 Gaming, which is its first gaming-centric smartphone. The device featured mechanical gaming trigger buttons too. Prior to its announcement, there were speculations that the company will work on another variant of the gaming smartphone with a toned-down chipset.
Back then, both the variants of the gaming smartphone were tipped to share the spotlight at the same time. However, the company took the wraps off the Redmi K40 Gaming alone. Now, a well-known Weibo-based tipster from China, Digital Chat Station has shared the key specifications of the other gaming-centric Redmi smartphone likely on cards. It is believed that this smartphone in question could be launched this month in the company’s home market China.

The former, being the more powerful model, went official already. However, Redmi is yet to confirm when it will take the wraps off the toned-down variant.
