Another camera and a sensor are placed between those two sensors. An LED flash unit is placed alongside the triple camera system.

The design of the camera housing matches the images of the Redmi K40 and Redmi K40 Pro handsets that were recently seen at TENAA. The company is yet to reveal the front design of the smartphone.
