Until today, the POCO X6 series consisted of two smartphones — POCO X6 and POCO X6 Pro. Today, that changes with a new smartphone in the lineup, the POCO X6 Neo. It has been released in India, which also marks its global debut. The smartphone is expected to appear in more countries soon.

POCO X6 Neo is the cheapest in the range. This also means that the specifications have been reduced to reduce the price. But still, the phone includes some eye-catching highlights that may attract people looking for a new phone in this budget. Below we provide detailed information about the design, specifications and price of the smartphone.

POCO X6 Neo Design

Our hero carries a similar design language compared to other recently launched POCO smartphones. On the back of the device is a huge rectangular island that carries the cameras. While the bezel is kept flat and gives the device a sleek look. It has a thin 7.7 mm chassis and weighs 175 grams. Therefore, the device is quite thin and light. Speaking of colors, there are three options: Astral Black, Horizon Blue and Martian Orange.
