According to Xiaomiui, the Xiaomi device with the 23011310C model number will debut in the market as the Redmi K60 Gaming. The report further reveals that the device has a “Socrates” codename and is likely to debut in Q1 2023 in China.

Like the predecessor model, the K60 Gaming may not be released in markets outside of China. The report claims that the device will come equipped with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset, which will debut next month (November). Some Chinese tipsters have claimed the K60 Gaming will support 100W charging.

The POCO F5 GT is most likely a rebranded Redmi K60 Gaming for Indian and other markets. However, the model numbers of the F4 GT haven’t appeared yet on any of the certification platforms. Hence, it is unclear whether the device exists.

Speaking of POCO, the company is said to be working on the POCO F5 5G flagship phone. The device is said to have the “Mondrian” codename and is expected to come with specifications like an OLED display with a 2K resolution and a 120Hz refresh rate and a Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 chipset. While the POCO F5 5G will be released in Indian and global markets, China will receive the same device with the Redmi K60 branding.
