XDA senior member kacskrz discovered a complicated Xiaomi/Redmi/Poco naming situation by studying the MIUI system code, all of which revolved around the new Redmi K40 series.
Previous FCC documents have confirmed that Redmi K40 will be renamed Poco F3 and sold globally. However, the above new findings indicate that the K40 will be renamed “Xiaomi 11X” in the Indian market instead of using the Poco brand.
In addition, Redmi K40 Pro will be called Xiaomi 11X Pro. Note that these have nothing to do with Redmi 10X and 10X Pro. What’s more complicated is that the top version of the Redmi K40 Pro + will be called Xiaomi Mi 11i, perhaps the sequel of India’s Xiaomi 10i (itself based on Redmi Note 9 Pro 5G). Considering that the first batch of Mi 10i went on sale just two months ago, this seems a bit fast.
There is not much difference between Mi 10i and K40 Pro +. Both have a 120Hz display, 108MP camera and 33W fast charge, but the “Mi 11i” has a huge improvement in processing power (SnapDragon 888 and 750G), the same display has also been upgraded from IPS LCD to Super AMOLED.
It is worth mentioning that the above code mentions “haydn_pro_global”, which indicates that Xiaomi 11i will actually be sold in the international market, which will make the naming more confusing. In addition, this is the first time we have heard that K40 Pro + will go global (Poco renamed models only have standard and Pro versions).
