Earlier this month, Chinese tech giant Xiaomi launched the Redmi K40 series in China. Rumours soon emerged not long after the launch that the models will launch in the global market under the POCO brand. However, that speculation was soon squashed by a senior member of the XDA Forum, kacskrz who discovered evidence, by way of code snippets, that the devices will launch in India and elsewhere under the ‘Mi’ branding.
The tipster has now spotted more evidence which gives a clearer picture of the models Xiaomi may release for the global market. The new evidence suggests that the Mi 11X Pro which will likely be launched alongside the Mi 11X will arrive as the Redmi K40 Pro+ which was launched as the topmost variant in China. That is an indication that the Redmi K40 Pro which bears the cidemname “haydn” may not be launched outside China.
The screenshot which he shared shows that the Mi 11X Pro will go by the codename “haydnin pro”. This is an indication that it will be a rebadged Redmi K40 Pro Plus which has the codename “haydn pro”. As per the tweet, the device will also launch in other markets apart from India but will bear the moniker Mi 11i. On its part, the global variant adopts the codename “haydn pro global.”
The earlier code snippet shared by the tipster contained a Xiaomi device listed as ‘Mi 11X‘ and with the model number M2012K11AI. The device bears the codename ‘aliothin’ which is similar to the codename of the Redmi K40 – “alioth”. The “in” surfix added to it is what has fuelled speculations that the Mi 11X is a rebranded Redmi K40
