The latest Redmi models, Redmi K40, K40 Pro, K40 Pro +, officially announced by Xiaomi of China the other day.
The price of Redmi K40 with SD870 starts from about 33,000 yen in Japanese yen, and K40 Pro with SD888 is about 46,000 yen, which is far cheaper than existing smartphones with SD888.
Although it is such a Redmi K40 series, it turned out that the possibility of release in Japan is quite high this time.
The following are the compatible bands of Redmi K40 Pro / Pro + on the official website in China:
And the following are Redmi K40 compatible bands:
Both models are compatible with DoCoMo’s 4G platinum band, B19 and carrier aggregation B42.Fully compatible with Japanese LTE bandsIt is a spec that can be said to be.
Also, it is quite rare for overseas models to support both of these, not just Xiaomi.
In the past, there are several Chinese smartphones that have not been officially released in Japan and are compatible with B19, but Xiaomi and Redmi, which were not released in Japan, are quite limited. (Not none)
Therefore, judging from the situation, it can be said that the Redmi K40 and K40 Pro / Pro + are very likely to be released in Japan.
Domestic release of Xiaomi Mi 11 is also rich
By the way, when I checked it, Xiaomi’s flagship, Xiaomi Mi 11, also supports B19 and B42. On the other hand, last year’s Mi 10 series was not supported.
Xiaomi seems to be full of offensive atmosphere in the domestic market, such as doubling the number of staff in Japan this year.
Also, earlier this year, the official LINE account announced that the SD888-equipped model will be rolled out in Japan in 2021. (Model unknown)
Therefore, in 2021, we may be planning to increase the number of models deployed at once and gain the domestic Chinese smartphone market share to replace Huawei at once.
