The POCO X3 was launched in India without NFC but with a bigger 6,000 mAh battery. A couple of months later, it received a Pro variant that had the Snapdragon 860 SoC. The Poco X3 NFC made its debut more than a year back, in September 2020.
There have been speculations and rumours going around ever since, regarding the upcoming smartphone. The forthcoming devices from Poco likely consist of two models; the Poco X4 and Poco X4 NFC.
As can be seen in the screenshot, two Xiaomi phones with model numbers 2201116PI and 2201116PG have appeared in the IMEI database. The listings have no information on their specs, but they do confirm that these devices are going to be launched in the market as Poco devices.
Adding more clarity, from the past launches by the brand, the letter ‘i’ in the model number hints that the device could be the Indian variant. On the other hand, the NFC variant is speculated to be launched in the global markets.
The documents do not reveal anything about the design or the specifications of the two devices, however, with the Redmi Note 11 hitting the global market as the Poco M4 Pro, the signs are that these new devices could actually be the rebranded version of the Redmi Note 11 Pro.
The Redmi Note 11 Pro comes with a 6.67-inch AMOLED screen with a 120Hz refresh rate, Mediatek Dimensity 920 processor, 108MP main camera, 8MP wide-angle, and 2MP macro sensor. It is also powered by a 5,160 mAh battery and comes with a 67W fast charger in the box.
