Not just the previously mentioned Oppo A59 made its formal worldwide launch in India today. Alongside it is the Poco M6, a smartphone running MediaTek’s Dimensity 6100+ SoC and equipped with 4/6/8GB of RAM, with the option to expand RAM up to an additional 8GB.
Featuring a 6.74-inch 720×1,600 LCD screen with a refresh rate of 90 Hz and a maximum brightness of 600 nits, the Poco M6 is protected from the elements with Gorilla Glass (the specific version is not specified). It also has 128GB or 256GB of UFS 2.2 storage, microSD expansion support, dual-SIM functionality, a 3.5 mm headphone jack, a side-mounted fingerprint sensor, and a 5,000 mAh battery that can be charged up to 18W.
It runs Android 13 with MIUI 14 on top, features a 50 MP primary back camera, and is splash- and dust-resistant. The Poco M6 will be available in Galactic Black and Orion Blue for the first time on December 26.
If the Poco M6, as previously rumoured, appears to be a direct rebranding of the Redmi 13C 5G, which was unveiled last week, then that explains why all of those specs look similar. Of course, Poco’s own brand touches provide the back design with a slight variation, but other than that, these seem exactly the same.
The standard Poco M6 model, which has 4GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, costs INR 10,499; the 6/128GB version costs INR 11,499; and the top-of-the-line 8/256GB variant costs INR 13,499. But thanks to a bank promotion, you can get the M6 for just INR 9,499, which Poco claims makes it the most reasonably priced 5G smartphone in India to date.
