It seems that Xiaomi is preparing to release the POCO X4 GT and the POCO X4 GT Pro, not just the POCO F4 5G. Rumoured to be global versions of the Redmi Note 11T Pro and Redmi Note 11T Pro Plus, Xiaomi could launch the pair in India as the Redmi K50i and Redmi K50i Pro.

Kacper Skrzypek appears to have discovered global and Indian names of the Redmi Note 11T Pro and Redmi Note 11T Pro Plus. Announced last month, the Redmi Note 11T Pro and Redmi Note 11T Pro Plus rely on the MediaTek Dimensity 8100, a popular mid-range SoC also found in the Realme GT Neo3, among other devices. According to Skrzypek, Xiaomi has already released MIUI ROMs for the global and Indian versions of the Redmi Note 11T Pro and Redmi Note 11T Pro Plus, despite having not scheduled launches for any of them yet.

As the screenshots below show, Xiaomi has released MIUI ROMs for the 22041216G, 22041216UG, 22041216I, and 22041216UI, which all carry the codename 'xaga' or 'xagapro'. For reference, these model numbers relate to the POCO X4 GT, POCO X4 GT Pro, Redmi K50i and Redmi K50i Pro, respectively. Incidentally, the National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission (NBTC) in Thailand underline this, with the POCO X4 GT and 22041216G shown to be the same device.

Although it is unclear when Xiaomi will release the POCO X4 GT or Redmi K50i series, evidence is mounting that they will arrive soon. Presumably, Xiaomi will equip all devices with the same hardware as the Redmi Note 11T Pro and Redmi Note 11T Pro Plus, which includes a 6.6-inch IPS display that operates at 1080p and 144 Hz. Both devices have 64 MP primary cameras too, but the Redmi Note 11T Pro has a larger battery, while the Redmi Note 11T Pro Plus supports higher wattage charging at 120 W.
