Xiaomi to release Redmi Note 11T Pro series globally under the POCO brand as FCC certifications emerge
The FCC has published documents for 22041216UG, a Xiaomi smartphone that it will sell under the POCO brand. While the IMEI numbers shown in various documents do not reveal a model number, the FCC has highlighted a few specifications. Reputedly, the 22041216UG could be a rebranded Redmi Note 11T Pro, which Xiaomi will announce later this month in China.
Based on the FCC's documents, the 22041216UG supports 5G connectivity and has an NFC module, not always a given in Xiaomi smartphones. Also, the 22041216UG runs MIUI 13; the Android version remains unknown, currently. Either way, the 22041216UG will arrive with MIUI 13 based on Android 11 or Android 12. Additionally, the FCC describes that the 22041216UG has 8 GB of RAM plus a choice between 128 GB or 256 GB of storage.
Incidentally, another document implies that Xiaomi hopes to sell the 22041216UG in Europe, as well as the US. Moreover, Xiaomi has certified 22041216G too, another POCO-branded smartphone. Also a 5G smartphone with 8 GB of RAM and up to 256 GB of storage, the 22041216G's model number implies that it belongs to the same family as 22041216UG. A release date for both smartphones has not surfaced yet, although a confidentiality document suggests that the pair should be with us by the end of October at the latest. In all likelihood, Xiaomi will announce 22041216UG and 22041216G within the next month or two.
