Xiaomi is gearing to launch a new 5G device in Europe, the Redmi Note 9T 5G. Besides, last month, a Redmi smartphone with model number M2101K6G received Russia’s EEC certification. It was rumored to be the Redmi K40. Today, the same device has got FCC certification, and a tipster claims that it will belong to the ‘Note’ series.
As spotted by our very own Simranpal Singh, a Redmi device with a model number M2101K6G is listed on the FCC certification website. The listing shows that the device has support for NFC, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi 2.4 and 5GHz bands in addition to running MIUI 12 as software. We could also spot that the device is certified for LTE/GSM/WCDMA carrier frequencies.
However, a tipster Sudhanshu on Twitter claims that it is the Redmi Note 10 Pro 5G but there is neither any indication of the “5G NR” bands in the list nor is it mentioned on the label as you can see below in the tweet:
Hence, it could just be a 4G LTE device and not a 5G-one as the device doesn’t have any of the FCC permitted frequency bands for sub-6GHz and mmWave. You can check the additional images below:
That said, we also can’t rule out the possibility of this model having 5G variants but we will have to wait for the official news to confirm it. Additionally, tipster Mukul Sharma has also spotted that the device has already got it’s IMEI registered in India.
From this, it is clear that the device is global-bound and will make it to multiple countries including the Americas, and Asia. Sadly, apart from the network features, we don’t have enough information about specs to talk more about it.
