The Redmi K20 and K20 Pro will be known as Poco F2, Mi 9T in overseas markets

Ro, 29 May 2019

Since the new Redmi K20-series are already out in China, it's time for Xiaomi's sub-brand to focus on the international market. The latest piece of information, however, comes as a surprise because it seems that in some countries, the handsets won't come out under the Redmi brand.

The Redmi K20 Pro is said to appear as Pocophone F2 Pro while the vanilla K20 will be named Pocophone F2. This also means that the phones will be called Poco F2 and Poco F2 Pro in India. The source also claims that both phones will retain their amazing price tags.

To further complicate things Xiaomi just teased the arrival of a new member to the Mi 9 family with a pop-up selfie camera, much like the K20 and K20 Pro. It could very well be the Mi 9T and Mi 9T Pro that leaked the other day from a Polish source.

To sum things up, while in their original launch the K20 and K20 Pro were Redmi phones, they will carry Xiaomi's brand and in others, and be branded Pocophone/Poco elsewhere. It remains to be seen which markets will get which versions. One thing is for sure, though, the hardware will be the same and the price tag will be tempting.
