“A new report has found evidence in the latest MIUI 11 beta that suggests the Redmi K30 Pro Indian variant will be launched under the POCO branding”
Redmi K30 Pro was launched earlier this week with flagship internals and a premium design. While there is no confirmation of any sorts, it is believed the phone would launch as POCO F2 in India considering the Redmi K30 came to India as the POCO X2. Now, thanks to XDA-Developer reports there is enough evidence to support the popular belief. An XDA Junior member was able to decompile the latest MIUI 11 beta build’s camera app where he found references to ‘Imi’ which is the code-name for Redmi K30 Pro and ‘Imiin’ which could be the code-name for its Indian variant. Upon further digging, he found the constant called ‘device_poco_watermark_default_text’ that contains the string “Shot on POCO Phone.”
This more or less confirms the Redmi K30 Pro Indian variant will launch in India under the POCO branding. This further backs speculations that the POCO F2 will be nothing but a rebranded Redmi K30 Pro. With the Redmi K30 Pro now official, it won’t be long before the company launches the POCO F2 in India. However, considering the current lockdown situation over coronavirus outbreak, the POCO F2 India launch might not happen anytime soon.
