A Xiaomi device with M2012K11AG model number was spotted at various certification platforms such as EEC, TUV Rheinland, IMDA (Singapore), TKDN (Indonesia), and Indonesia Telecom. The same handset has now received approval from the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) in the U.S. When IMEI numbers found in the FCC listing were checked through an IMEI database, it revealed that the device will debut with the POCO F3 moniker.
China’s Redmi K40 has an M2012K11AC model number, whereas its global variant has ‘G’ instead of ‘C’ at the end. It was found through M2012K11AG’s TUV and EEC certifications that it will be launching as a POCO branded phone. The CEIR IMEI database listing not only confirms that it will be coming with the POCO F3 name, but also it will be landing in India.
The POCO F3’s FCC appearance has revealed little information on the connectivity features of the device. It reveals that the phone will come with support for 5G, dual SIM support, Wi-F 6, Bluetooth, and NFC. It also states that the device will boot to MIUI 12. It is likely that the POCO F3 may borrow all its specifications from the Redmi K40 handset.
