Xiaomi has released new POCO smartphones, as expected. The POCO X6 series is here. It consists of two smartphones, the POCO X6 and POCO X6 Pro. Their design is very similar, but the ‘Pro’ model does have a slightly different-looking camera setup on the back.
Both smartphones have a two-tone finish on the back, thanks to a large camera island which is black-colored. The frame around the phone is flat, though it does have chamfered edges. All the physical buttons sit on the right-hand side of both smartphones. The two phones are different in the spec department, so we’ll talk about them separately. We’ll kick things off with the ‘Pro’ model.
The POCO X6 Pro is a bit more powerful, but it looks very similar to its sibling
The POCO X6 Pro is the more powerful of the two. It is fueled by the MediaTek Dimensity 8300-Ultra SoC. It comes with either 8GB or 12GB of RAM, and those two models are accompanied by 256GB and 512GB of storage, respectively. Xiaomi used LPDDR5X RAM here, and UFS 4.0 flash storage. When it comes to performance, LiquidCool Technology 2.0 is also on board.
A 6.67-inch CrystalRes 1.5K display sits on the front. This is an AMOLED DotDisplay, as Xiaomi calls it. The refresh rate here is 120Hz, and the phone has an instant touch sampling rate of 2,160Hz. The max brightness is 1,800 nits, and the panel is protected by the Gorilla Glass 5.
It includes a 5,000mAh battery, and supports 67W charging
A 5,000mAh battery is also included, and 67W wired charging is supported. You’ll also find a charger in the box. A 64-megapixel main camera (OIS) sits on the front, along with an 8-megapixel ultrawide camera, and a 2-megapixel macro camera. A single 16-megapixel unit is included on the front.
There are two SIM card slots here, and 5G is supported, as is Bluetooth 5.4. The phone is IP54 certified, while HyperOS is a part of the package too, as are stereo speakers. The POCO X6 Pro also has an in-display fingerprint scanner and an IR blaster.
The POCO X6 Pro measures 160.45 x 74.34 x 8.25mm (8.35mm vegan leather model), and weighs 186 grams (plastic) / 190 grams (vegan leather model). The phone comes in Black, Gray, and Yellow colors as shown above.
The POCO X6 has a 120Hz display, and utilizes Qualcomm’s SoC
The POCO X6, on the flip side, is fueled by the Snapdragon 7s Gen 2 processor. It also comes in 8GB and 12GB RAM variants. The 8GB RAM model includes 256GB of storage. The 12GB RAM variant is available in both 256GB and 512GB storage flavors. LPDDR4X RAM is used, and UFS 2.2 flash storage, so it’s inferior to what the ‘Pro’ model offers.
A 6.67-inch CrystalRes 1.5K AMOLED DotDisplay is in use here too. It also offers a 120Hz refresh rate, and a 2,160Hz instant touch sampling rate. The peak brightness is the same as on the ‘Pro’ variant, and Gorilla Glass Victus protects this panel.
A slightly larger battery is in use here, while a charger is included
This handset includes a 5,100mAh battery, and supports 67W charging, while the charger is included in the box. The POCO X6 also has a 64-megapixel main camera with OIS, in addition to an 8-megapixel ultrawide camera, and a 2-megapixel macro unit.
The POCO X6 has two SIM card slots and supports Bluetooth 5.2, and HyperOS. It has an in-display fingerprint scanner, stereo speakers, and is IP54 certified. An IR blaster is included at the top of the phone, and facial scanning is enabled too.
This smartphone measures 161.15mm x 74.24 x 7.98mm, and weighs 181 grams. The POCO X6 comes in Black, Blue, and White colors, all of which are shown above.
