POCO F3 launch inches closer as the phone receives SIRIM certification

POCO F3 specifications could include Snapdragon 870, 120Hz AMOLED display, and 33W fast-charging.

Highlights
  • The POCO F3 has been certified in Malaysian agency SIRIM
  • The handset bears model number M2012K11AG
  • POCO F3 is expected to be a rebrand of Redmi K40

Redmi K40 is expected to be rebranded as POCO F3 in global markets, probably including in India, — it has already bagged the FCC certification and listed on the IMEI database. Now, the phone has received the SIRIM certification with model number M2012K11AG in Malaysia, indicating the POCO F3 Asia launch isn’t too far away. While the listing, as spotted by Mukul Sharma, doesn’t reveal much else about the phone, we already know the full POCO F3 specifications of the phone since the Redmi K40 had already launched in China. The POCO F3 specifications includes features such as Snapdragon 870 SoC, 120Hz AMOLED display, 33W fast-charging support, Android 11 OS, and up to 256GB storage.
