Poco seems to be preparing to launch the Poco X6 Neo in India soon. Sub-brand Xiaomi on Wednesday (March 6) shared a teaser on its social media to hint at the arrival of the Poco X6 Neo in the country, without confirming the exact name or launch date. The Poco X6 Neo is believed to come as a rebranded version of the Redmi Note 13R Pro, which debuted in China in November last year. The upcoming phone is expected to run on MediaTek Dimensity 6080 SoC.

Through X post, Poco has announced the launch of a new Poco Neo series smartphone in the country. The publication did not specify the exact moniker or the release date of the smartphone, but the Poco X6 Neo, which has been rumored for the past few weeks, is expected to come off the cover soon.

Meanwhile, the Realme 12 5G with MediaTek Dimensity 6100+ 5G SoC went official earlier today. Taking a dig at Realme, Poco India headlines Himanshu Tandon sarcastically wrote this he felt “red flags” seeing an LCD panel and a MediaTek Dimensity 6100+ processor in a sub-17K smartphone. He reiterated that the Poco M65 5G offers the same chipset under Rs. 10,000, urging buyers to wait for the new Neo phone.

Gadgets 360 recently shared some exclusive details and design aspects of the Poco X6 Neo. It is expected to come in an orange color with dual rear cameras, resembling the design language of the Redmi Note 13R Pro. It can be priced below Rs. 16,000.

The Redmi Note 13R Pro was launched in China in November last year with a price tag of CNY 1,999 (roughly Rs. 23,000) for the only 12GB RAM + 256GB storage model.

The Poco X6 Neo and Redmi Note 13R Pro will have similar specs if the former is indeed a rebranded phone. The Redmi Note 13R Pro comes with a 6.67-inch (1080×2400 pixels) OLED display with up to 120Hz refresh rate and 2160Hz pulse width modulation (PWM) dimming. The phone has a MediaTek Dimensity 6080 SoC with 12GB of RAM and 256GB of inbuilt storage.

The Redmi Note 13R Pro has a dual rear camera system featuring a 108-megapixel primary camera along with a 2-megapixel camera. For selfies, there is a 16-megapixel front-facing camera. The smartphone features a side-mounted fingerprint sensor for authentication. It is backed by a 5000mAh battery with 33W fast charging support.
