Poco M6 Pro specifications
The Poco M6 Pro looks similar to the Poco M5 with slight tweaks in the rear camera module. There’s still a large black patch on the back that includes the camera cutouts and Poco branding. The front has a hole-punch cutout for the selfie camera — an uncommon design on smartphones in this range. The sides have the usual power button and volume rockers.
The phone features a 90Hz 6.79-inch Full-HD+ with a 240Hz touch sampling rate. The screen has Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection.
It draws power from the Qualcomm Snapdragon 4 Gen 2 SoC and a 5,000mAh battery. The Poco M6 Pro runs on Android 13-based MIUI 14 out-of-the-box and is promised to get two major Android OS updates plus three years of security updates. In comparison, many smartphones in the sub-Rs 12K category receive one major Android update.
The back includes a 50-megapixel AI sensor and a 2-megapixel depth sensor. For selfies and video calls, there
is an 8-megapixel camera.
Other key features include 18W fast charging, an IP53 dust and splash resistance, a side-mounted fingerprint scanner, 5G, and dual-band Wi-Fi.
