XDA Senior Member kacskrz may luxuriate in uncovered an advanced rebadging scheme for Xiaomi/Redmi/Poco flagships by snooping by beget configurations. Right here is all centered around the modern K40 sequence.
We already noticed in FCC docs that the Redmi K40 will be sold because the Poco F3 globally. Nonetheless, these modern findings imply that the K40 will be renamed “Xiaomi Mi 11X” for the Indian market instead of the usage of the Poco brand.
This X-branding will lift over to the Redmi K40 Professional as successfully, which will be identified because the Xiaomi Mi 11X Professional. Show that these are no longer connected to the Redmi 10X and 10X Professional. Anyway, right here comes a speak twist.
The top of the line Redmi K40 Professional+ will instead be dubbed the Xiaomi Mi 11i, most definitely a sequel to India’s Mi 10i (itself according to the Redmi Show 9 Professional 5G). That appears relatively hasty pondering that the first Mi 10i devices had been sold two months prior to now.
The Mi 10i and K40 Professional+ are no longer that dissimilar – both luxuriate in 120 Hz shows, 108 MP cameras and 33W hasty charging, but the “Mi 11i” is a immense upgrade in processing energy (Snapdragon 888 vs. 750G), also the expose switches from IPS LCD to Stout AMOLED.
Show that the code title if truth be told says “haydn_pro_global” – that means that the Mi 11i will if truth be told be sold in the realm markets, which will beget things grand more confusing. Also, right here is the first we’re hearing of the K40 Professional+ going world (the Poco rebranding utterly lined the vanilla and Professional fashions).
