Xiaomi Poco F6 with new Qualcomm CPU – renamed Redmi Note 13 Turbo?

The Xiaomi Poco F6, as the renamed Redmi Note 13 Turbo, will get the not yet introduced Qualcomm SM8635 chipset.

Last year, Xiaomi launched two flagship killers, the Poco F5 and the Poco F5 Pro. The F5 was able to assert itself significantly better on the market due to its better price-performance ratio. This year it seems like we will also get a duo as the Xiaomi Poco F6 Pro has already started its certification journey. Of course, there will also be a base model again to fill the big shoes of the F5. The as-yet-unannounced Qualcomm SM8635 chipset, better known as Snapdragon 8s Gen 3 or 8s Gen 2, which will be officially presented on March 18, will help with this.

The Xiaomi Poco F6 Pro, on the other hand, will get a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chip. At least if it is just a renamed Redmi K70, which on the one hand would confirm the previous rumors and on the other hand would also correspond to Xiaomi’s pattern. As usual, it will be interesting to see how big the performance differences will be between the Poco phones. The base model may once again prove to be the better deal.

The Xiaomi Poco F6 will carry the model number 24069PC21G internationally and the code 24069PC21I in India. Interestingly, the upcoming Redmi Note 13 Turbo for the Chinese market has the model number 24069RA21C. This strongly suggests that the F6 will be a rebranding of the Redmi Note 13 Turbo.

Additionally, the codename of the Xiaomi Poco F6 is reportedly “Peridot,” which is a yellow ruby. And the codenames of Redmi Note series devices usually have gemstone names – another hint of a possible rebranding. Now that Qualcomm has made the SM8635 chip official, a number of Chinese smartphone makers are likely to announce new devices in quick succession. Redmi is likely to be involved and Poco could then introduce the new model to an international audience.
