Xiaomi POCO X6 Series Debuts With Capable Specs and Affordable Price Tags


Xiaomi has been teasing the POCO X6 series for quite a while now. Well, the lineup was finally revealed today. As expected, the series comes with two brand-new devices.

One is the regular POCO X6, while the other is called the POCO X6 Pro. They share a lot of similarities in terms of design, with the back having a two-tone finish with a large camera island. However, there are a good number of differences in terms of the internals.

POCO X6 Pro: Powerful Mid-ranger

As you may have guessed, the POCO X6 Pro is a more powerful device among the two. Here are its main highlights:

Under the hood, the POCO X6 Pro has the Dimensity 8300 Ultra SoC. Even though it is a mid-range CPU, the processor is capable of delivering flagship-grade performance. That means you can expect to enjoy a smooth experience while running resource-intensive apps and games.

On that note, Xiaomi has paired the CPU with an adequate amount of memory and storage to handle heavy loads. The X6 Pro comes with up to 12 GB of LPDDR5X RAM and up to 512 GB of UFS 4.0 flash storage. These two will let the device run demanding apps and games with ease.

As for the battery, the POCO X6 Pro comes with a large-sized 5000 mAh cell. Xiaomi has paired it with 67W wired charging, making the battery get from 0% to 100% fast.

The other internal highlights of the POCO X6 Pro include an IP54 rating, Bluetooth 5.4, and an IR blaster.

Display and Software

On the front, the POCO X6 Pro has a 6.67-inch display. It’s a 1.5K resolution AMOLED panel that Xiaomi calls DotDisplay. With a 120 Hz refresh rate, the screen can deliver fluid motion, allowing you to get a flagship-grade gaming experience with the phone.

The storage also saw a downgrade in terms of the technology. It comes with UFS 2.2 flash storage. But the good part is that you can get the phone with 512 GB of storage. So, storing large-sized files on the POCO X6 will not be too bothersome.
