Contents of the box

  • POCO F6 5G 12GB + 512GB in black color
  • 120 W fast charger
  • USB type C cable
  • SIM Eject Tool

  • Screen saver (pre-installed)

The phone has a 6.67-inch Full HD+ 120Hz AMOLED display that can switch between 30Hz, 60Hz, 90Hz and 120Hz. It has HDR 10+ and Dolby Vision. It has a brightness of up to 2400 nits, so sunlight readability is good even in bright outdoors. There is 1920Hz high frequency PWM dimming.

The screen has Corning Gorilla Glass Victus protection. It has an ultra-narrow 2.27mm bottom bezel. You can also see the in-display fingerprint scanner, a change compared to the side-mounted scanner on the POCO F5.

The small hole houses a 20 MP camera. On the top edge is a speaker grill that also doubles as a speaker.

It's the first phone powered by the Snapdragon 8s Gen 3 4nm SoC with support for the ultra-large 4800mm² IceLoop cooling system, which the company says is 3x better than VC cooling.

It runs Android 14 with HyperOS out of the box. The company has promised 3 OS updates and 4 years of security updates for the phone.

Coming to the placement of the buttons, the volume rockers and the power button are present on the right side of the phone. The dual SIM slot, speaker grill, main microphone and USB Type-C port are present at the bottom. It does not have a microSD expansion slot.

At the top there is a vent for the speaker, a secondary microphone and an infrared sensor are present at the top. The 3.5mm audio jack, which returned on the POCO F5, is now gone. Since the phone has a plastic frame, you don't see any cutout for the antenna. The flat frame offers a good grip to hold and does not attract fingerprints.

POCO F6 5G features 50MP rear camera with Sony IMX882 sensor and OIS. There is an 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera. It supports up to 4K video recording at 60 fps on the back and 1080p video recording on the front.

Check out some camera samples.

The phones have a flat edge design and a plastic back. The phone is also IP64 rated for dust and water resistance. The phone packs a 5000mAh battery with 90W fast charging support that can charge up to 100% in 35 minutes. It weighs 179 grams.

POCO F6 5G starts at Rs. 29,999 for the 8GB + 256GB model. With all the offers, the phone will be available starting at Rs. 26,999. It will be available on Flipkart from May 29.
