The Redmi K40 series that launched a week back in China is making its way to the global launch. The vanilla Redmi K40 is expected to be launched as the Poco F3 in global markets, suggests the US FCC certification website.
The Redmi K40 being launched as a Poco phone was rumored earlier as well when the smartphone was spotted on an IMDA (Infocomm Media Development Authority) listing, which reveals the M2012K11AG model (global Redmi K40 variant) getting certified as a POCO smartphone.
The same model number has been spotted on the US FCC website which further confirms the smartphone will launch as Poco F3. There might be a Poco F3 Pro as well because the Redmi K40 series consists of Redmi K40 Pro and Redmi K40 Pro+ as well, but there’s no information regarding that yet.
