Redmi Note 12 5G to be the next POCO phone in India?


New Delhi: The Redmi Note 12 5G, unveiled by the Chinese smartphone maker in China last week as part of the new Redmi Note 12 series, is said to debut in India as a rebranded Poco smartphone. According to a recent report, a Poco smartphone with similar specifications to the Redmi Note 12 5G might launch in India this month.

The launch of the Redmi Note 12 series in China included the Redmi Note 12 Discovery Edition, Redmi Note 12 Pro 5G and Redmi Note 12 Pro+ 5G. However, the Redmi Note 12 Discovery Edition may remain a China exclusive, while the Note 12 Pro 5G and Note 12 Pro+ may debut in the Indian market as the Xiaomi 12i and Xiaomi 12i HyperCharge, according to previous reports.

The model number of Redmi Note 12 5G, which debuted in China, is 22101317C, which stands for M17 in short form. The new POCO device spotted on the BIS database has the same abbreviated M17 model number, suggesting that the phone might indeed be heading to India as a rebranded POCO smartphone.

According to the report, the model number in BIS also suggests that the device may launch in November in India. However, Poco India is yet to make any announcement regarding the launch of a new smartphone with similar specifications to the Redmi Note 12 5G.
