Alongside the POCO F6, the brand also unveiled its Pro sibling in an event today. While the vanilla F6 houses the new Snapdragon 8s Gen 3 chipset, the F6 Pro is powered by a last-gen flagship SD 8 Gen 2 SoC. In this piece, let’s take a look at the POCO F6 Pro, its features, full specifications, expected price in Nepal, and availability information.

POCO F6 Pro Overview

Performance and Software

Like always, raw horsepower is one of the headlining features of the new POCO smartphone. The F6 Pro is running Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 based on TSMC’s 4nm process. It’s the star from 2023 with a prime Cortex X3 core running at 3.2 GHz and an Adreno 740 GPU.

Complementing the powerful chipset, there’s up to 16GB of super-fast LPDDR5X RAM and 1TB of UFS 4.0 memory. POCO has advertised the “Liquid Cool 4.0” tech inside the F6 Pro that claims to be up to 3x more effective than a traditional vapor chamber. We’ll be sure to test that in our upcoming review of the product, but for now, the POCO F6 Pro sounds pretty promising for power users like gaming enthusiasts.

The smartphone boots on HyperOS based on Android 14.

Design and Display

The POCO F6 Pro is simply a Redmi K70 rebrand so the design language is pretty much the same. There’s a rectangular island at the back housing three cameras while the selfie cam is present in the hole-punch cutout on the front. Unlike the regular F6, the pro version ships with a glass back and metal frame giving it a more premium feel and heft.

On the front, the phone features a 6.67-inch WQHD+ screen with an AMOLED panel. It can refresh up to 120Hz with a touch sampling rate of 2160Hz and high 3840Hz PWM Dimming. Since it’s a 12-bit panel, there are over 68 billion colors and it covers the wider P3 gamut. Finally, the peak brightness is also impressive at 4000 nits while the entire screen can go up to 1200 nits in the high brightness mode.

Camera and the Rest

In the optics department, the POCO F6 Pro comes with three cameras on the back. The primary shooter here is a 50MP Omnivision Light Fusion 800 sensor with OIS. Auxiliary lenses include an 8MP ultrawide and a 2MP macro camera. Similarly, you get a 16MP selfie cam on the front.

The POCO F6 Pro draws its power from a 5,000 mAh battery with support for 120W HyperCharge. Other features of the phone include support for Sub 6 GHz 5G, WiFi 7, Bluetooth 5.3, and NFC. The X linear vibration motor ensures crisp feedback, while features like the IR blaster are thoughtful quality-of-life additions.
