Xiaomi recently launched its Redmi K30 Pro smartphone in China. Considering that its younger sibling the Redmi K30 was rebranded and launched as the Poco X2 in India, it was being speculated that the new K30 Pro would also meet the same fate. Now, a few signs are hinting that this is what will happen.

XDA Developers user kacskrz while digging around in the code for the Mi Camera app of MIUI 11 beta version found traces of the Redmi K30 Pro and Poco attached together.

According to kacskrz the new MIUI Camera app has a new method called Bi, which returns true if b.kb and Build.IS_INTERNATIONAL_BUILD return true. And when b.kb return true, it consists of the model name lmi and lmiin, both of which are codenames for the Redmi K30 and Redmi K30 Pro, respectively.
