We are two days into the new year and the next supposed big entries into the rather cluttered mid-range smartphone segment in India have finally been announced. Xiaomi noted (pun intended) its launch of the Redmi Note 13 series this month, and it looks like we will also be getting the much-awaited POCO X6 series on January 11.
POCO’s promotional banner on the Flipkart mobile app revealed the POCO X6 and X6 Pro’s official launch date to be January 11, 2024. The landing page seems to have been accidentally published a few hours earlier, confirming the date. It has now been changed and displays only the trailer. POCO has yet to confirm the launch date. So yeah, not a great way to start your year, Flipkart.
For those unaware, the POCO X6 and X6 Pro are the successors to POCO X5 and X5 Pro from 2023. Leaks suggest the POCO X6 is a Redmi Note 13 Pro in disguise and will be powered by Snapdragon 7s Gen 2, which is quite similar in performance compared to Snapdragon 7 Gen 1.
