Redmi Note 11 series was introduced globally on Wednesday and the lineup included the vanilla Redmi Note 11, Note 11S, and Note 11 Pro. The phones are expected to launch in India as well. Xiaomi sub-brand POCO usually launches rebranded Redmi models in global and other markets. This has been the case multiple times in the past and will be so going forward as well. Now, the latest we hear is that the recently unveiled Redmi Note 11S will be rebranded as POCO M4 Pro in a few markets, courtesy of XDA Developers. Both devices share the same device codename: Fleur.
As is evident from the past, the POCO M4 Pro 4G will have the same internals as the Redmi Note 11S but there will be some cosmetic changes to the design to set it apart. However, the launch timeline of the POCO M4 is currently under wraps, but it should happen in the next couple of months, provided the information is legit.
Separately, XiaomiUI reports that POCO is working on a device dubbed as the POCO F4 GT, which will serve as a successor to last year’s POCO F3 GT. However, nothing is known about the phone at the moment.
