Xiaomi launched its latest gaming phone — Redmi K40 Gaming Edition — on April 27 as one of the most powerful and interesting new devices from the company. Recently, we also learned that the phone will launch in India as POCO F3 GT, a rebranded version but with similar specifications. Now, the Chinese phone-maker has released a complete teardown video of the newly-launched Redmi K40 Gaming Edition, giving us a tour of the phone’s internals.
Redmi took to its official Weibo profile and shared a timely 2-minute teardown video of the Redmi K40 Gaming Edition. Here’s what the video reveals and what key components are there inside Redmi’s first gaming phone. You can also watch the teardown video of Redmi K40 Gaming Edition at the bottom of this article.
Redmi K40 Gaming Edition Tear-down
As you’ll see in the video, the whole teardown process begins from removing the glass back panel of the Redmi K40 Gaming Edition phone. This reveals all the components that are embedded just below the back panel, including the battery, NFC antenna, and protective cover over the motherboard. After removing a few screws and when you unclip a few cables, you can see the actual motherboard of the phone. The freed camera cover when removed gives us a look at the three modules.
The video shows the motherboard in even more detail and you can clearly see the MediaTek Dimensity 1200 chipset. After this, the JBL tuned stereo speaker setup appears along with a quick shot of the 5,000mAh battery and the vibration motor. Another interesting thing that we see in the video is the inside look at the release mechanism for shoulder trigger buttons. Next, you’ll see the Redmi K40 Gaming Edition display with a large copper VC heat sink below. The phone’s triple mics can also be seen at the end of the video.
