The listings revealed that these devices carry support for 5G connectivity, and they come with a 67W fast charger.
Redmi has also released a GIF image to tease the key features of the Redmi K40 Game Enhanced Edition. It reveals that the phone is fitted with physical shoulder trigger buttons for an enhanced gaming experience. There is also a vertical triple camera setup with some form of lighting available surrounding the cameras.
