While Xiaomi has yet to launch its flagship Mi 11 in India, a leaked internal code suggests that recently launched Redmi K40 and Redmi K40 Pro will be featured as Mi 11X and Mi 11X Pro in the country. The internal code was discovered by XDA Developers member and informant Kacper Skrzypek who posted on Twitter.
It was previously reported that Redmi K40 will launch as Poco F3. Highlighting the internal code reveals a device with the model number M2012K11AI codenamed “aliothin”. The suffix “in” used in the code name suggests that the phone will be launched in India. Similarly, the Redmi K40 Pro will be rebranded as the Mi 11X Pro in India. The code also mentions a third device with the codename “haydn_pro_global” which will be a renamed version of Redmi K40 Pro +. It will likely be called the Mi 11i and will not launch in India.
Xiaomi introduces brand new phones in India is not a new thing. Earlier this year, the Chinese smartphone maker launched the Mi 10i, which is a renowned Redmi Note 9 Pro 5G. Xiaomi has yet to announce any of these phones in India or around the world.
The Redmi K40 series was launched in China last month. The Redmi K40, Redmi K40 Pro, and Redmi K40 Pro + start at Rs 22,300 (roughly), Rs 31,200, and Rs 41,300 respectively. All three devices sport a 6.67-inch AMOLED E4 TrueTone display developed by Samsung. It has Full HD + resolution with a 120Hz refresh rate and a 360Hz touch sample rate. It also has HDR 10+ and the maximum brightness reaches 1,300 nits.
