Leaks in the past have revealed some information about the upcoming Redmi phone including the phone having the model number M2104K10C. It has also been revealed that the device will be launched later this month.

Although the exact name of the device isn’t known yet, it has already cleared China’s 3C certification and TENAA certification. According to these listings, the upcoming gaming phone comes with the codename “Ares” and features a dimensity 1200 SoC, a quad-camera setup at the back, housing a Sony IMX686 64MP primary lens. Moreover, it is expected to feature a 90Hz LCD display and pack a 5,000mAh battery with 22.5W fast charging support.

Most Poco phones in recent times are targeted towards gaming enthusiasts in the mid-range segment. Moreover, the Poco X3 Pro is currently the most affordable handset with Qualcomm Snapdragon 8-series SoC.
