Xiaomi Poco X6 Series Launched: Starting at $249

Xiaomi has officially launched its latest Poco smartphones in India, introducing the Poco X6 and X6 Pro to the market. Notably, both devices are rebrands of previous models, each with its own set of specifications. The Poco X6 Pro appears to be a rebranded Redmi K70E, distinguishing itself by featuring MediaTek’s high-end Dimensity 8300 Ultra chipset. This chipset provides users with a balanced mix of power and efficiency, although it comes with a slightly slower 67W charging capability compared to the K70E’s impressive 90W speeds.

Both variants of the Poco X6 boast a 6.67-inch AMOLED display with a high resolution of 1,220 x 2,712px, a smooth 120Hz refresh rate, and a peak brightness of up to 1,800 nits. Additionally, both models include a 16MP front-facing camera housed within a punch-hole cutout and incorporate in-display fingerprint scanners, marking a notable first for Poco smartphones.

The camera setup on both Poco X6 models is led by a 64MP primary camera with a 2x lossless in-sensor zoom functionality, complemented by Optical Image Stabilization (OIS). Supporting the primary sensor, the camera system includes an 8MP ultrawide module and a 2MP macro lens.

In terms of software, the Poco X6 Pro runs on Xiaomi’s HyperOS, built upon the foundation of Android 14. The X6 initially ships with the older MIUI 14, but Poco has confirmed an upcoming update to HyperOS. Additionally, Poco is committed to providing three Android updates and four years of security patches for both X6 variants, ensuring long-term usability and security.

The Poco X6 Pro is equipped with a 5,000 mAh battery supported by 67W fast charging capabilities. Meanwhile, the standard X6 features a slightly larger 5,100 mAh battery, also equipped with rapid 67W charging support.

For color options, the Poco X6 is available in classic black, pristine white, and stylish blue, while the Poco X6 Pro offers a choice of black, elegant grey, and the signature Poco yellow.

The starting price for the Poco X6 is $249, while the Poco X6 Pro is priced at $299 in India. International prices for these phones are expected to be higher.
