Poco has officially unveiled its latest offering, the Poco M6 Pro 5G, aptly dubbed the “5G disrupter,” in the Indian market. The cutting-edge smartphone narrowly outpaced Xiaomi’s Redmi 12 5G, securing its position as the most cost-effective 5G device in the country featuring Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 4 Gen 2 chip.
The Poco M6 Pro shares the same internal components as the Redmi 12 5G, cleverly repackaged within an ingeniously tweaked chassis proudly adorned with the Poco branding. The true allure lies in its remarkably affordable pricing structure. At an enticing starting price of just Rs 10,999 (for the 4GB/64GB variant), the Poco M6 Pro 5G offers exceptional value.
Specs and Features
The Poco M6 Pro 5G boasts an elegant glass back design and is offered in two stylish colours: Forest Green and Power Black. Additionally, this phone boasts IP53 dust and splash resistance, further enhancing its durability. A conveniently placed side-mounted fingerprint reader facilitates biometric authentication. While it offers an IR blaster and a headphone jack, its audio capabilities are limited to mono-speaker output.
On the front, users will be treated to a visually captivating 6.79-inch LCD display featuring an impressive 1080p resolution and an ultra-smooth 90Hz refresh rate. A discrete hole punch cut-out, artfully centred, houses an 8MP selfie camera. On the flip side, the Poco M6 Pro 5G flaunts a dual-camera setup consisting of a 50MP primary lens alongside a 2MP depth sensor.
Driving the Poco M6 Pro 5G’s performance is the highly efficient 4nm Snapdragon 4 Gen 2 chip, complemented by a robust 5,000mAh battery with 18W fast charging support over USB Type-C. The package includes a 22.5W charger for user convenience. Operating this technological marvel is MIUI 14, based on Android 13, with the promise of two major OS updates and up to three years of security updates, ensuring an optimized and secure user experience for an extended period.
Price and Availability
The 4GB/64GB variant is set at Rs 10,999, while the top-tier 6GB/128GB version commands a price of Rs 12,999. It is slated for general release on August 9 and will be available exclusively on Flipkart.
