chuckles Guys. I have a suprise for you., Not only one, not only two but three.. You want to know what surprise I am talking about. Let’S go. Watch till the end of this video. introduction, music. So guys I am Richmond and welcome back to my channel.. So what we’re holding right now is the very first ever gaming phone of Xiaomi., So we know that this Redmi K40 Gaming has been recently released. And what I’m holding right now is the special edition.. This is the Bruce Lee variant, which is just one out of 4000 that were released worldwide. Wow. I’m, so happy that I got this Bruce Lee edition of the K40 Gaming. And you can see that I’m holding it right now in my hands. It’s, very, very attractive.. It’S very very sporty, and this phone very very martial art like right, It’s, so … Wow. And you cannotice that I idolize BRuce Lee so much. And you cannotice that I patterned my logo after Bruce Lee.. So before we talk about the gaming on this phone let’s. First talk about the specs of the K40 Gaming., So this phone has a MediaTek Dimensity, 1200. It’s 5G, together and it’s. Also, a 6nm chip. It’s, an octa core up to 3Ghz speed. MediaTek said this is the flagship for this year 2021. And it can easily take on the Snapdragon 888, especially when it comes to gaming.. They said they won’t back down.. We will know this later on.
The benchmarks and also on gaming., Then at the same time it has a 6.67in OLED display. 120Hz of screen refresh rate, which is of course, definitely it’s. A very very welcoming specs on this phone together with a HDR 10.. Its brightness is 500 nits., It’s very, very bright already, but of course, when it comes to AMOLED it’s a little bit, brighter., Maybe it’s on the 600 or 700, which is of course brighter is more welcomed.. We’Ll know it under the bright sunlight. If we’ll read the pictures, if we’ll see the text that are sent to us., Because there are times that when it comes to under the bright sunlight, you’ll be having a hard time, reading. It’s, just like … eh., You just wasted your money on this one. It’s. So expensive and yet you’re having a hard time reading under the bright sunlight.. The protection on this phone is amazing. It’s, very, very tough.. It has a Corning Gorilla Glass, 5 protection in front Corning, Gorilla Glass, 5 protection at the back plus aluminum frame on this phone.. So it’s that kind of tough and amazing this phone is like Bruce Lee.. So did you know that this phone is IP53 splash and dust proof You can really throw it on a battle.. Xiaomi said this is a gaming phone, so it definitely has game. Triggers. And it’s, not just any game triggers.. These are physical button. Guys., Take a look., Wow. It’s, so satisfying to press.
Clicky clicky right. Maybe the only thing that is missing on these game triggers is the sound effects when you pop up the game triggers. On the Black Shark 4, when you pop them up it’ll have a sound click. Click. They’re, like mechanical clicks., You’ll, hear it like its two triggers. Are popping up. And its so satisfying to listen to, especially when you’re a gamer.? Now this phone is running on the latest MIUI 12.5, together with that Android 11, so this phone is very, very updated.. The only thing that is missing on this one is to install Google Play.. As of the moment it doesn’t have GMS. And probably hopefully, XIaomi will soon bring it back so that we can put GMS or Google Play back on this phone. And right now. Its camera is a triple camera setup.. I noticed that phones nowadays come back to a triple camera. I’m, not sure why they’re lessening it. It used to be quad cameras., But right now they’re back again to triple camera, and it starts off with a 64MP main shooter. It’s got an aperture of f1.7, together With that 8MP ultrawide sensor., Of course, a 2MP macro lens. Together in front of it, it has a 15MP front shooter. And that’s the entirety of its camera setup on this phone. We’ll know its performance later. When I show you the pictures. We’ll notice in Mi series that Xiaomi collaborated with Harman Kardon. And right now on the Redmi gaming phone it’s now JBL.
, I noticed that when I was playing on this one, especially when I’m watching on Youtube the sounds on this phone Is very loud. Here in my room in this 32sq room of mine, it’s, so filled up with sounds. Amazing.. I really hear it especially the gunshots on Call of Duty. The sounds are so crispy. We’ll know that later. And then finally, its battery is a 5065mAh of capacity together with a 65W of fast charging.. Definitely it’s very fast. We’ve been able to charge from 13 to 100 and we finished within one hour using its yellow cable and its yellow. Charger. MediaTek really said that it can easily take on the Snapdragon 888. And we’ve tried it on the AnTuTu Benchmark.. It got 707000 points on AnTuTu Benchmark, which is for me. I said, wait a minute. If you can go head to head, you should at least be close to its score, which is for me …. It’S. Still kind of far. 888 is already on the 800000. And, of course, on other benchmark like AITUTU it’s, 272000 points. It’s maxed out on Sling Shot Extreme.. This is what I was looking for. It’s the same with the Snapdragon 888.. Probably one of the things that is not wonderful on this phone is it’s just a level 3 Widevine security on its DRM info, which is for me, I said, wait a minute. Its screen is so good, but it will not support HD on Netflix, which is for me .
.., maybe that’s its downside., So we’ve check on the refresh rate, checker …, it’s correct its screen. Refresh rate is 120Hz.. We’Ll know it definitely on this app and not with our eyes., And we also checked how efficient on the battery the Dimensity, 1200 is. And we’ve got 14 hours and 22 minutes on the PCMark battery. Stress test. I’ve used this at under 60Hz so that … most likely that’s what we’ll set if we’re, not gaming., It’s kind of a waste on battery to use the 120Hz. So being able to survive 14 12 hours, it’s already okay., It’s, very, very nice already and It’S durable. So based on my daily usage for almost one week, I can tell you that more or less it can maybe survive a whole day.. But if you’re telling me that it can reach up to two days, it definitely can’t.. Mediatek Dimensity 1200 is really kind of power. Hungry., So we’ve watched YouTube on this phone. Indoors. I can tell you that its display is great.. Its display is big.. Its chin is not that big, and definitely I can tell you that it’s very, very enjoyable, watching videos on this phone because of its very very nice display., And what I noticed about this phone is its chins on top bottom and sides are very symmetrical. ‘Cause. There are other phones when it comes to … to their chins. The bottom is usually larger.. This one is very, very symmetrical.
. So, while we’re watching videos on this one we’ve tried putting the volume on maximum. We’ve tested how good the sounds are on the JBL stereo surround sound.. I can tell you guys that it’s really very nice.. I really enjoyed the videos on this one, especially when I’m gaming. My experience was very nice., So speaking about gaming that’s, what we want to focus on this phone., So definitely right now. One of the things that is missing on this phone is a Game Space mode.. So we cannotice on Nubia Red Magic that they have their own Game. Space. Black Shark has a Shark Space.. This Redmi Gaming phone is also using the same Game, Turbo mode, just like other Xiaomi phones, which is something that shouldn’t be happening on a gaming phone ’cause. This a gaming phone.. Definitely it should have its own gaming space so that it’ll be more optimized for gaming., But nevertheless it has a game turbo mode.. So we tried using this game turbo, mode. And it’s. Definitely almost the same. There … the Game, Space.. So definitely it’s almost the same like what we’ve experienced with the Xiaomi Mi 11 on the Mi 10T Pro on the Redmi Note: 10 Pro. It’s the same game, turbo mode that enhances your gaming experience. It’s, giving you the full resources that you need just for gaming.. So on this one, you can also configure the two game triggers., So I configure it for the Call of Duty.
. So right now, we’ll go in the Call of Duty. And of course the two game triggers are now raised. And right now, we’ll check its settings.. So it can easily go high settings on Call of Duty.. I can tell you guys that it’s the first time that Xiaomi created a gaming phone.. So if you thought that Black Shark is owned by Xiaomi that’s, where you’re wrong. Xiaomi invest on the company of Black Shark, but they do not own Black Shark. Take note of that.. So in the game experience here on Call of Duty, I can tell you that it’s very smooth and very nice. Well 3DMark, said earlier on its graphic test that it’s maxed out, which means its performance, is very okay. On games that we’re playing on this phone. And of course we were not let down on the gameplay., So I can tell you that my experience on Call of Duty is very smooth. As much as possible. I’M trying to find frame drops on this one. It’s. Very very minimal. It’s close to zero., So I almost didn’t notice anything after playing for roughly 30 minutes.. I can tell you that’s is very okay.. I didn’t feel that it’s lagging on Call of Duty., So definitely together with the JBL speakers it’s so satisfying to play on this.. So your experience is very, very immersive.. The only thing that I noticed on it after playing Call of Duty for roughly 30 minutes, maybe on the 15 minute mark.
I notice that the back is kind of heating up.. But after 30 minutes, it’s heated up a bit more., But its warmth is still tolerable. Not the kind of hotness what can burn you., But of course I would prefer that we’ll use a cooler for it to be cooler when we’re playing., Maybe imagine the hotness being only 30 minutes in what more, if it’s, two three or four hours of gameplay, Probably It’Ll be hotter., So yeah. You have to be careful there guys.. This is the first one of Redmi, so definitely expect some bugs on this phone.. Now going over to the Genshin Impact, I can tell you that Genshin Impact is very, very graphics. Intensive. Especially you’ll feel when you’re playing, where you’re swinging to the left to the right you’ll notice that the screen is kind of left behind.. Maybe if you have a bad processor that’s, where you’ll see and test when it comes to Genshin Impact. That’s, where you’ll feel that it’s really lagging., But we set it to the highest settings.. The settings even indicated that it overclocked. It really performed. And of course, nonetheless, the experience is very, very immersive., So I enjoyed for roughly about one hour here in Genshin Impact., So I kind of reached far already.. So I kind of reached far already and I enjoyed on this game., But the only thing I can tell you is that after one hour of playing the back of the K40 Gaming really heats up.
So yeah, I really highly recommend that you put a cooler on This phone, if you want to play for more than 30 minutes. You’ll, really need it ’cause. It really heats up., So we’ve taken some camera shots on this phone., Normally on a gaming phone it’s kind of bad when it comes to camera.. Maybe this is where Redmi has an advantage. It’s, because they’re already experienced in creating great cameras like … Redmi, Note 10 Pro, which has 108MP camera. They’re so used to it. Their camera performance has been improving a lot. Now they’ve integrated on this one, its 64MP on The MIUI 12.5. And I can tell you that it did not disappoint. So I’ve captured some great shots, outdoors. And, of course, indoors. Shots are also okay. Under some lowlight shots. It still performed decently., Especially when it comes to selfie it’s. Looking looking good. And probably I can tell you when it comes to gaming phones …, maybe this has one of the best cameras out of all the gaming phones that I’ve tested here on my channel..
