As promised, Xiaomi today unveiled the Poco M6 Pro with a Snapdragon 4 Gen 2 chipset and two storage configurations – 4/64GB and 6/128GB. There is also a microSD card slot for storage expansion by up to 1 TB. The operating system used is MIUI 14 based on Android 13. However, Xiaomi promises two major Android upgrades and three years of security updates.
The Xiaomi Poco M6 Pro is based on a 6.79-inch LCD display with a FullHD+ resolution and a refresh rate of 90 Hz. The maximum brightness is 550 nits and the touch sampling rate is 240 Hz. The display and the 8 megapixel selfie camera in the middle are protected by Gorilla Glass. However, Xiaomi does not reveal any details about the version.
On the glass back of the Poco M6 Pro there is a big camera module with a 50 megapixel main camera and a 2 megapixel depth sensor. Power is supplied by a 5,000 mAh battery that charges up to 18 watts via USB-C, although the included charger can handle up to 22.5 watts.
The Poco M6 Pro also has 5G on board thanks to the chipset. There is also an IR transmitter, a 3.5 mm headphone jack and a fingerprint sensor on the side. We also get an IP53 rating against water and dust, just like the Redmi 12 5G. That’s because the Redmi 12 5G is the Chinese version of the M6.
The Poco M6 Pro launches in India on August 9th and should soon be available worldwide. It is available in Power Black and Forest Green colors. The 4/64GB model costs INR 10,999 ($135/€120), while the 6/128GB version will set you back INR 12,999 ($160/€140). There is an instant rebate of INR 1,000 ($12/€11) if you pay with an ICICI Bank credit/debit card.
The Redmi 12 5G, on the other hand, is offered in three storage configurations – 4/128 GB, 6/128 GB and 8/256 GB. Prices are INR 11,999 ($145/€130), INR 13,499 ($165/€150) and INR 15,499 ($190/€170).
