Redmi K40 will be rebranded as POCO F3 for global markets reveals FCC, IMEI listing

Last month Xiaomi introduced the Redmi K40 series smartphones in China with 3 models. Now the model number M2012K11AG has been certified by the FCC and also appeared in IMEI listing that reveals that the Redmi K40 will be launched as POCO F3 for the global markets, just like how last year’s Redmi K30 Pro was launched as POCO F2 Pro in several countries outside China.

The FCC report clearly mentions the model number and also reveals the POCO F3 name for the phone which is the same as the Redmi K40. It also got TUV Rheinland certification recently.

The phone has also appeared in IMEI listing which confirms that the phone will be launched in India soon.
