Xiaomi is also launching its Redmi K40 series on February 25 and the report by MySmartPrice shows the Redmi K40 has made its way to BIS certification website. The model number M2012K11AI, believed to be the Redmi K40, has been spotted on the Indian certification website suggesting the phone could be launched in the country soon, presumably on the February 25 China launch date.
