Upcoming POCO smartphone will not be a direct rebrand of Redmi Note 12

It’s no secret that once a Redmi phone has been launched, it will turn into a reskinned POCO phone, but this time…that’s not the case

Poco could soon introduce a new smartphone in India. On social media, the business is looking to hire reviewers. This phone’s brand has not yet made any announcements. But we can make assumptions about it because of the MIUI codebase.

BIS certification from earlier this month hinted that the recently released Redmi Note 12 would enter India as a Poco-branded smartphone. The brand’s Indian head, nevertheless, refuted this assertion.

Days later, the MIUI codebase has also turned up the India version of this Poco gadget. The device is identified in the code as having the codename “Sunstone,” which is the same as the Redmi Note 12 that is offered in China.

The Poco version of the Redmi Note 12 might feature somewhat altered specifications, as is customary for Poco. The executive likely indicated that “something better” had been planned because of this.

For its asking price, the Redmi Note 12 is already a decent device. The only significant drawback we could identify is its cameras. The phone contains a 48MP main camera that can be used, a 2MP depth sensor, and a lower-resolution 8MP front-facing camera.

Since the Poco model is expected to keep the Qualcomm Snapdragon 4 Gen 1 SoC, 6.67-inch FHD+ 120Hz AMOLED display, 5,000mAh battery, and other features, we believe it may have a superior camera system.

So what to expect with this ‘new’ POCO release in the future? It’s nice to know that Xiaomi isn’t staying to the cookie-cutter rebrand they’re used to do with their releases, and hopefully in the future, we’ll get a true blue made-from-scratch POCO smartphone we all deserve to have.
