Redmi K40 Gaming Edition may launch in India as the Poco F3 GT

28 April 2021
At this point you can't possibly be surprised by yet another Xiaomi rebranding.

Sort by:

judging from the benchmarks of the Dimensity, the Poco F3 could be faster

ignitedean, 29 Apr 2021For the first time, I'm actually seriously considering... moreNever buy a Mediatek device with Chinese ROM. You will be either stuck with the Chinese ROM or there is a pretty high chance that you brick your device if you try to change it. And xiaomi.eu ROMs do not support any Mediatek devices for that reason.

Who cares for Europe when we get poco f3 with diming issue. Very vad marketing move from Xiaomi cause its a great device.

For the first time, I'm actually seriously considering buying the K40 Gaming as an import. After voucher / discount, the entry level 6gb/128gb model works out at £309, including shipping. Question is: buy the import, or just buy a POCO F3 via official channels???

But they should've released Poco F3 as it is in India. But no, they decided to hike the price by $100, remove 9 5G bands from Poco F3 and sell it in India so as to make it look "premium" Mi-series device.

These are confusing times. Good competition for Rog 5 there.

Cyberchum, 29 Apr 2021You're very close to the truth, but I'm sure you&... morePoco f3=mi11x=redmi k40

SShreyas, 29 Apr 2021Lol. Poco F3 was rebranded as Mi 11X and this will be rebra... moreTo be more correct, Mi 11X and Poco F3 were rebrands of Redmi K40. You think you can just buy one and because they're all the same? Nope, the bands are heavily customized to cater their target region.

I think because of the trade war. China should not sell any smartphones outside of China.

China really makes the best now. Build quality, design, materials, assembly, everything.

This practice really needs to stop.

But were you to still insist that it was; please, tell me which Mi (or, even, redmi) models the Poco X3 models are. AFAIK, no Mi phone has ever been rebranded as a Poco.
