Xiaomi POCO X6 Neo announced with 108 MP camera in another Redmi Note re-brand

Xiaomi has now officially revealed the POCO X6 Neo, a cheaper alternative to the POCO X6 and POCO X6 Pro. Available in three colourways and two memory options, the Xiaomi POCO X6 Neo shares all its features with last year's Redmi Note 13R Pro, including its reliance on Android 13 and MIUI 14.

The POCO X6 Neo is Xiaomi's latest POCO smartphone and the third member in the POCO X6 series. For reference, the POCO X6 and POCO X6 Pro (curr. $385 on Amazon) have been available globally since mid-January. By contrast, Xiaomi appears set on making the POCO X6 Neo an Indian exclusive, at least initially.

As expected, the POCO X6 Neo is a re-branded Redmi Note 13R Pro. Consequently, the former has a 6.67-inch AMOLED display that outputs at 1080p (2,400 x 1,080), 120 Hz and with 1,000 nits peak brightness. Also, the POCO X6 Neo possesses a MediaTek Dimensity 6080 chipset, UFS 2.2 storage and a 5,000 mAh battery that supports 33 W wired charging. Moreover, Xiaomi includes a 108 MP primary camera, as well as 2 MP depth and 16 MP front-facing cameras.

Unfortunately, the POCO X6 Neo ships with Android 13, even though Xiaomi pre-installs Android 14 on the POCO X6 Pro. While Xiaomi has announced the POCO X6 Neo today, the device will not become orderable until March 18 at 06:30 UTC. Available in Astral Black, Horizon Blue and Martian Orange colour options, the POCO X6 Neo will start at INR 15,999 (~$193) with 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage and will rise to INR 17,999 (~$217) for range-topping 12 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage variants.
