Redmi and Poco absolutely love playing the rebranding game and it definitely looks like this will not stop soon. In fact, Poco may be ready to transform another device – in this case, we’m talking about the Redmi Note 10S, which was launched under that name back in 2021.
It’s a little late to rebrand a handset more than a year after it first appeared, but that’s exactly what some recently appeared FCC documents show will happen. Poco has requested an FCC certification based on the one previously issued for the Redmi Note 10S, as the two handsets are identical with the exception of some minor variations.
As you can see in the screenshot above, the Redmi Note 10S (with the model number M2101K7BNY) was driving the MIUI 12 when it was certified, while the upcoming Poco model will be launched with the MIUI 13 on board – understandably a year later. Furthermore, the Poco phone will share one RAM / storage version with its sibling (6 / 128GB), but also come with two new ones that have not been seen on Redmi: 4 / 64GB and 4 / 128GB. It will also be available in a new blue version.
The Redmi Note 10S has a 6.43-inch 1080×2400 60 Hz AMOLED display, MediaTek Helio G95 SoC at the helm and a 5,000 mAh battery with 33W fast charging. It comes with a quad rear camera system (64 MP head, 8 MP ultrawide, 2 MP macro, 2 MP depth) and a 13 MP selfie shooter front.

The upcoming Poco should also have all of these features, and given the hardware here, we assume it will be part of the C or M families of Poco devices. With the FCC certification out of the way, the official launch is likely just around the corner.
