The smartphones launch season was at its peak in October with a bevy of flagship launches from a number of big names. However, the eternal spinning wheel of smartphone launches never stops, and four yet-to-be-launched models have been spotted on China’s MIIT certification authority.
Of these four, two reportedly belong to Xiaomi and the other two belong to Vivo. There’s barely anything known about these four devices, since the MIIT certification doesn’t usually reveal much detail. The two Xiaomi devices listed are labeled M1901F9T, M1901F9E.
Since this is the first time these model names have been spotted, it is difficult to ascertain the name of these handset. That said, they do seem to be variants of a single handset. If we were to take a wild guess, these model names could belong to the Redmi Note 6 Pro, which hasn’t launched in China. The initial number sequence written as “M19” though is new for Xiaomi, and could be a 2019 device getting early certification.
As for Vivo, the brand doesn’t shy away from giving a lot of buying options to its customers in the mid-range segment. New models from Vivo that got certified are labeled CMIIT and V1821A/T. This particular model seems to belong to the upper mid-range segment owing to the fact that it has a 22.5W charger certified at 3C previously. The Chinese company has been quite active lately with launches of new devices this month such as the Vivo X23 Symphony Edition, Vivo Y97, and others.
