A while back, Poco handsets with model numbers 2201116PG and 2201116PI were spotted on the IMEI database. The listing had revealed that both these handsets will launch under the Poco branding.

Now, a fresh listing on the IMEI database reveals that the 2201116PG is the upcoming Poco X4 Pro 5G – the successor to the Poco X3 Pro which was launched back in March 2021. A Xiaomi-focused blog, Xiaomiui took it to Twitter to share the development.

Poco X4 Pro 5G will boot MIUI 13 Out of the Box!

The Poco handset with model number 2201116PG was also spotted on FCC just last week. The FCC listing confirmed that the upcoming Poco handset will boot MIUI 13 out of the box. Apart from this, the listing did not reveal anything about the upcoming handset.

Since the handset with model number 2201116PI had also appeared on the IMEI database, we can expect it to launch in the Indian market as well. However, similar to other Poco handsets, Poco India might decide to make a couple of changes in the Indian variant.

The company already has its Poco F3 GT with maglev triggers specifically to cater to gamers in the Indian market, it will be interesting to see how the company is going to position the upcoming Poco X4 Pro 5G in India.

To recall, it’s been almost a year since the Poco X3 Pro was introduced. Poco X3 Pro is quite a popular device among mobile gamers globally and the company refers to it as the spiritual successor to the OG Poco F1. It will be interesting to see which processor the company is going to use on the Poco X4 Pro 5G.

While it looks like we are going to see the successor of the Poco X3 Pro soon, there is still no concrete news about the successors of the Poco X3 NFC and the Poco X3 handsets which were launched in 2020.
