Xiaomi had recently launched the Redmi Note 10 Pro 5G in China and seems like it will re-branded as a Poco smartphone in India. The Redmi Note 10 series was launched in the country in March. It initially had three smartphones Redmi Note 10, Redmi Note 10 Pro and Redmi Note 10 Pro Max, while a fourth Redmi Note 10S was added in May. All these smartphones only support 4G connectivity and Xiaomi was expected to add a 5G model at some point.

It may still happen, but the customers might have to wait for a while. According to Xiaomi tipster Kacper Skrzypek, the Redmi Note 10 5G can be rebranded as the Poco X3 GT for markets such as India, Turkey, Indonesia and more. Given that the tipster has a good record in predicting Xiaomi products, this may actually turn out true. However, at this point, there is no word from Xiaomi or Poco.

This would make things slightly interesting though. All the Redmi Note 10 series smartphones launched in India so far have been equipped with AMOLED displays. The Note 10 and Note 10S come with 60Hz panel while both the Pro models feature 120Hz panel. While the Redmi Note 10 Pro 5G also has a 120Hz panel, it uses an LCD display.

As for the other features, the Redmi Note 10 Pro 5G comes with a MediaTek Dimensity 1100 processor with up to 8GB of RAM. The smartphone runs MIUI 12.5 based on Android 11. The smartphone comes with a triple rear camera including a 64-megapixel camera with f/1.79 aperture, an 8-megapixel ultra-wide sensor with f/2.3 aperture and 2-megapixel macro camera with f/2.4 aperture. On the front, there is a 16-megapixel selfie shooter.

The phone packs a 5000 mAh battery with 67W fast charging. Redmi Note 10 Pro 5G has stereo speakers, Dolby Atmos and Hi-Res audio.

Poco has a small portfolio in India and often re-brands Xiaomi products for the country.

It has announced that it will be launching the Poco F3 GT in India soon. The smartphone is confirmed to come in the third quarter of 2021. It will be a rebranded Redmi K40 Gaming Edition for the Indian market. The smartphone maker is also expected to bring the Poco M3 Pro 5G to the country soon.
