On Feb. 25, Redmi announced the Redmi K40 and Redmi K40 Pro smartphones in China. The model number of the Redmi K40 is M2012K11AC. The model number of its global version is M2012K11AG and its Indian variant has an M2012K11AI model number. A fresh finding reveals that the global edition of the Redmi K40 will arrive in the market with the POCO F3 moniker. The device has now received approval from the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) in the U.S.
Before getting spotted at FCC, the M2012K11AG was seen at certification sites like Indonesia Telecom, Indonesia’s TKDN, Singapore’s IMDA, Europe’s EEC, and TUV Rheinland. Interestingly, the EEC and TUV listings revealed that the M2012K11AG will debut as a POCO branded device. This gave birth to rumors that it could be called POCO F3 in the global markets.
The IMEI database listing of the M2012K11AG shows that the M2012K11AG will indeed launch as the POCO F3. The FCC certification has only revealed only a few pieces of information about the handset. The listing reveals that the device supports 5G, dual SIM, Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth, NFC, and MIUI 12. Now that the POCO F3 has received FCC certification, it may go official later this month or in April.
