Following the successful launch of the Redmi Note 13 lineup in China, Redmi is now setting its sights on the global market. Recent developments suggest that the Redmi Note 13 Pro, originally released in China, is expected to be rebranded as the Poco X6 5G for global consumers. This anticipation is further bolstered by the device's recent acquisition of the IMDA certification, a clear indication of its readiness for the Singapore market. Additionally, its appearance on the BIS certification hints at a potential launch in India soon.
The Poco X6 5G, with the model number 23122PCD1G as per the IMDA certification, is confirmed to support 5G, Bluetooth, WiFi, and NFC. While specific details about its specifications are yet to be officially announced, insights can be gleaned from the Redmi Note 13 Pro's specs sheet. The Poco X6 5G is expected to sport a large 6.67-inch OLED display, boasting a 1.5K resolution of 1220 x 2712 pixels and a 120Hz refresh rate. It might also feature Gorilla Glass Victus protection, a notable addition in the mid-range segment.

Under the hood, the Poco X6 5G is likely to be powered by the Snapdragon 7s Gen 2 chip, coupled with a 5,100mAh battery supporting 67W fast charging. The global variant might offer a more modest configuration compared to its Chinese counterpart, potentially featuring up to 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage.
In terms of camera capabilities, the Poco X6 5G is expected to house a triple camera setup, including a 200-megapixel primary sensor with OIS, an 8-megapixel ultra-wide lens, and a 2-megapixel macro sensor. A 16-megapixel front camera is also anticipated. However, there are rumors that the global model might see a downgrade to a 64-megapixel primary sensor.
Furthermore, Qualcomm's recent announcement of the new Snapdragon 7 Gen 3 chip suggests that upcoming mid-range phones could see this chipset, adding another layer of speculation to the potential capabilities of the Poco X6 5G and similar devices.
