As per a recent report from XiaomiMIUI, the Xiaomi Ingres bears the model number L11. The same model number is being tipped to belong to an upcoming Redmi K50 series smartphone. Moreover, the smartphone codenamed Ingres recently appeared on different IMEI databases. It bears 22011211C in China and 22011211I in India. Meanwhile, it has model number 22011211G for the global market, suggesting that the smartphone would be coming out of China but with different names.

In China, the smartphone is listed under the Redmi brand. In India, it’s identified as a Xiaomi smartphone, while in the global IMEI database, the smartphone is listed as a POCO smartphone. 

However, this recent report from XiaomiMIUI contradicts a previous finding where Xiaomi 12X was spotted on the IMEI database with a different model number. According to a picture of the IMEI listing of Xiaomi 12X shared by Kacper Skrzypek, the Xiaomi 12X bears the model number 2112123AG, codenamed “psyche”. Further, the said smartphone is not expected to arrive in India. And it won’t be surprising if Xiaomi launches a different smartphone as 12X in other parts of the world and a different one in India.

The Xiaomi 12X with model number 2112123AG is rumoured to come with a 6.28-inch AMOLED FHD+ display with a refresh rate of 120Hz and HDR 10 support. Further, the smartphone might be powered by Snapdragon 870 SoC and feature a 50MP main camera.

However, some previous reports shed some light on the specifications of the upcoming smartphone.

Moreover, the Redmi K50 ProXiaomi 12X and POCO F4 Pro would come in 8GB, 12GB and 16GB RAM options, depending on the region. Further, these smartphones might feature a 64MP OmniVision OV64B primary sensor paired with an ultrawide and a macro camera. The smartphones could also feature an in-display fingerprint sensor instead of a side-mounted one found in the last generation of these smartphones.
