The phone with the model number 23049PCD8G has surfaced on Geekbench 6 listing revealing 12GB of RAM, Android 13 and high scores of 1629 and 4295 on single and multicore, on par with the Snapdragon+ Gen 1.
Based on earlier rumours, this should be the global variant of the Redmi Note 12 Turbo, which was introduced in China last month. We can expect 6.67-inch FHD+ OLED display with support for Dolby Vision, 120Hz refresh rate, 1920Hz High Frequency PWM Dimming and a 5000mAh battery with 67W fast charging, but it might have a different rear camera.
According to rumours, the Redmi K60 could launch as POCO F5 Pro, but it is not clear if we can expect it to launch alongside the POCO F5. We should know more details including the launch date soon.
