Xiaomi Redmi K40 Gaming Edition Full Review :  Today we are going to take a quick look of the Redmi K40 Gaming Edition phone. In this blog we’ll mainly cover the design, as the Redmi K40 Gaming phone is unlike any other Mi phone on the market, it’s worth taking an extra look at it. Next I will focus on the camera performance, sound and video viewing experience.

So, this is the box of the Redmi K40 Gaming Edition. One of the highlights of this phone is that it sports JBL's tuned stereo speakers. That’s why it is marked that on their packaging. 

The box comes with a pin, some paperwork, a transparent case, a 67w fast charger, and a USB type-c cable. To be honest I really like this yellow cable, it feels soft and very delicate. And now moving to the design. One of the biggest differences you will notice immediately for this phone is the dual shoulder key son the right side.

If you want to hide them, just slide two buckles to both ends. And if you want to use them, just slide to the middle, and the phone will enter Game Space. Convenient to play games! On the left side, we see the volume rocker and a mic. To the top, we see the IR blaster, a de-noising mic, and a speaker. To be honest, I have never seen a speaker of this design, have you? Now on the bottom, there is a SIM card slot, a type-c port, and another speaker. Xiaomi Redmi K40 Gaming Edition Full Review

Just in case you want to know, the SIM card supports dual card and dual standby, but it’s not SD card expandable though. And this is what the back panel looks like. It’s made of Gorilla Glass 5 but feels like plastic. As for the camera module, it’s flanked by accent lighting and an LED flash shaped like, well a flash.

When you connect to power, the indicator will light up as the video shows. Green means it’s fully charged. setup includes a 64-megapixel primary sensor with an f/1.65 aperture lens, an eight-megapixel The triple rear camera sensor with an ultra-wide-angle lens, and a two-megapixel macro camera. 

For selfies, there is a 16-megapixel camera at the front placed in a centrally positioned hole-punch cutout. The smartphone comes with a 6.67-inch Full HD+ (2400 x 1080) AMOLED display with HDR 10+ support, 500-nits peak brightness, and a 120Hz refresh rate and a 480Hz touch sampling rate. From our experience, the display looks awesome, what’s more, it comes with other excellent features like Reading mode, which makes your reading friendly so that you can focus on reading, even in night.

Overall, I really like the design. It’s lightweight and elegant. Unlike other dramatic gaming phones that you may feel embarrassed to pull out in public as you don’t want to attract attention, the Redmi K40 Gaming Edition phone looks incredibly low-profile. But at the same time, it has all those elements that a gaming phone should have like accent lighting and shoulder buttons. But what really matters for a gaming phone is its performance.

The smartphone packs a MediaTek Dimensity 1200 processor with up to 12GB of LPDDR4X RAM and up to 256GB of UFS 3.1 storage. Well, we ran Antutu Benchmark V9.0.5 version and this is the result: 658k. That is a really decent score. You know the Xiaomi Mi 11i tested before which even features the flagship chipset SD 888, it didn’t outperform the Redmi K40 Gaming. It’s just really powerful. 

However, I do find the handset overheats too much, even though it claims sporting with ‘Liquid Cool‘ vapor chamber technology that uses white graphene to keep the temperatures under control while gaming. It still feels hot. And speaking of gaming, we just played Call of Duty back and forth several times. Overall, no problem at all, it handles decently. Xiaomi Redmi K40 Gaming Edition Full Review

Now, about the sound and video viewing, I just put a few test clips here, you can check them out. If you want to see the full test please check from this playlist. All links are in the description. So what do you think of the JBL tuned speakers? Let me know in the comments section. And last but not least, let’s talk about the camera performance.

What I really like is it supports 4k/30fps recording with stabilization. With this being said you can always use it as a secondary camera when you are making serious videos. Isn’t that awesome? We just put all the original files here, you can tell us if it’s good. So that’s the unboxing and hands-on of this Redmi K40 Gaming Edition phone. As for pricing and availability, you can check out the linkin the description. 

Overall, I really like it for its slim and lightweight design, an of course, the powerful performance. It handles all my games decently when I need. So what do you think about it? Let me know in the comments section. Xiaomi Redmi K40 Gaming Edition Review, Redmi K40 Gaming Edition Review
