Poco F6 Pro seems to be in development. Ahead of any official announcement, the smartphone has appeared on the certification website, hinting at its existence. It is identified with model number 23113RKC6G, and the Poco F6 Pro is anticipated to serve as the global variant of the Redmi K70. 

It's expected to feature the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC and a triple rear camera setup with a 50-megapixel primary sensor, potentially succeeding the Poco F5 Pro 5G released last year.

According to Gadgets360, the listing provides insight into the Poco F6 Pro's connectivity capabilities, confirming support for GSM, WCDMA, LTE, and NR networks, and hinting at its 5G compatibility. Additionally, the listing indicates that the device is manufactured in China.

Aligning with the model number and details on the certification website, the Poco F6 Pro is likely a rebranded version of the Redmi K70, launched exclusively in China in November 2023. The Redmi K70 boasted a starting price of CNY 2,499 (about INR 29,000) for the variant with 12GB of RAM and 256GB of storage.
