Xiaomi recently unveiled its Redmi Note 13 Series in China, featuring three distinct models: the standard Redmi Note 13, Redmi Note 13 Pro, and Redmi Note 13 Pro Plus. What’s intriguing is the upcoming rebranding of this lineup, as it prepares to transition into the Poco X6 Series for global markets. This strategic move aligns with Xiaomi’s ongoing practice of rebranding select Redmi devices under the Poco umbrella, all while both brands remain integral parts of the Xiaomi family, catering to slightly different market niches.
Among the latest additions to the Redmi Note 13 Series, the standard model is expected to be reborn as the Poco X6 for international audiences, sharing the spotlight with the Poco X6 Pro. Nevertheless, the exact source model for the Pro version, whether it will draw inspiration from the Redmi Note 13 Pro or Pro Plus, remains shrouded in mystery.
For the international market, the Poco X6 reportedly carries the model number 2312DRAF3G, while it bears the identifier 2312DRAF3I for India. This device is anticipated to mirror many of the Redmi Note 13’s specifications, including the MediaTek Dimensity 6080 chipset, a 6.67-inch OLED display boasting a remarkable 120Hz refresh rate, a robust 5,000mAh battery, and speedy 33W fast charging. Notably, the primary camera on the Poco X6 is poised to feature a 64MP resolution, marking a departure from the Redmi Note 13’s 108MP camera. Additionally, there may be some minor design tweaks to set them apart visually.
As of now, there is no official release date for the Poco X6 Series or the Redmi Note 13 Series outside of China. Nonetheless, based on the initial digits of the Poco X6 model number, speculation suggests a potential December launch this year. Fans of these smartphones eagerly await further details and announcements.
