Check for R40-CPU, because A40i and A40pro are variants that differ in applicable temperatures range (industrial and military) against the R40:
http://linux-sunxi.org/A40i

Allwinner R40 (sun8i) SoC features a Quad-Core Cortex-A7 ARM CPU, and a Mali400 MP2 GPU from ARM. It is a not-pin-compatible quad core sucessor of the A20. It's also known as the Allwinner T3 for In-Car Entertainment usage.

Allwinner V40 (sun8i) SoC features a Quad-Core Cortex-A7 ARM CPU, and a Mali400 MP2 GPU from ARM. It is the automotive version of R40.

BPI-M2 Ultra with allwinner A40i chip, A40i is LTS chip design more than 10 years

 

 

 

You can check images for the BananaPi M2 Berry or M2 Ultra  (R40 / V40 CPU)

because there seem to be versions of the Ultra with A40i-CPU:

I saw modifications of banana pi m2 ultra with A40i, but didtn know that it is modification of R40. 

Yes- the A40i is only another pin-compatible temperature version of the R40.
And the R40 (quadcore-A7-cpu) seems to be a NON-pin-compatible version of the "old" A20-CPU (duacore-A7-CPU) which

was on the Banana Pi M1 (Pro)
