After multiple rumors, leaks, and teasers, the Redmi K40 Gaming Edition finally launched in China on Tuesday, April 27th. Now, the company is rumored to be planning to launch its latest gaming phone globally, and as per a tipster, it will be launched under the sub-brand POCO.
According to Xiaomi tipster Kacper Skrzypek, the newly launched Redmi K40 Gaming Edition will be rebranded as Poco F3 GT in India. To recall, Xiaomi had also rebranded its Redmi K40 series as POCO F3 for its global launch. In India, however, the Redmi K40 was introduced as Mi 11X. But interestingly, the gaming edition is tipped to carry the name Poco F3 along with the suffix “GT.” It’s surprising to see Xiaomi use GT, which we have seen till now is associated with Realme phones, such as Realme GT and GT Neo.
