Moreover, Poco has launched some phones in the past that were rebadged Redmi smartphones which are sold in China, such as the Poco F5 series which were rebranded Redmi K60 series devices.
The Redmi K70 series is said to arrive before the end of the year in China which means one can expect the Poco F6 to launch in December or during Q1 of 2024. Nothing has been confirmed officially by the brand as of now.

For selfies, the Poco F6 may house a 16-megapixel selfie camera. Leaks further reveal that Redmi K70 will be equipped with a 5,500mAh battery and will support 90W fast charging, which means the Poco F6 could also be backed by the identical battery unit.
