Xiaomi’s sub-brand is soon going to launch Redmi K30 Pro Zoom Edition in India but will be rebranded as a Poco device. There has been a lot of news and rumours that the company is planning to bring the Redmi K30 series to India and so is the Poco F2 Pro. Now a Google Play device listing has revealed that the Poco F2 Pro will be launched as the rebranded variant of Redmi K30 Pro. Both the phones are seen with the same codename under different branding.
First spotted by XDA Developers, a Google’s Play listing which includes the names of Play-certified devices meaning all the devices that are certified to make use of Google Mobile Services. The latest listing includes the latest variant of Xiaomi Redmi K30 Pro with code name Imi along with model name POCO F2 Pro indicating that the much-awaited Xioami’s device will be rebranded as the POCO F2 Pro.
Earlier it was reported that Redmi K30 Pro will make its way to the Indian market as Poco F2 as suggested by then-latest MIUI Camera code. Both the devices were spotted with the codename “lmi” and “lmiin” within the camera app along with “SHOT ON POCO Phone” watermark confirming that Redmi K30 Pro will be rebranded into a POCO device for India.
But the latest development suggests that the Google Play listing including Redmi K30 Pro exists as two codename variations — “lmi” as well as “lmiin“. The reports says that the “in ” at the end of the device codename indicates an Indian model and in the past, the company has launched Poco F1 as the rebranded version of Redmi K30 4G in the Indian market.
“This listing does not use “lmiin” for POCO F2 Pro, but only “lmi“. Further, “lmipro“, which is the Redmi K30 Pro Zoom Edition, sees a corresponding Indian variant in the form of “lmiinpro” which retains the same Redmi branding. This leaves us with the conclusion that the Redmi K30 Pro will likely launch in India under the same branding, and the device will be rebranded into the POCO F2 Pro for other markets,” the report says.
However, the Google Play listing also displayed the ‘lmiinpro’ for the Redmi k30 Pro Zoom Edition indicating that the company might launch the device under the same branding in the Indian market.
