POCO today unveiled the spiritual successor to the M5 series — the POCO M6 Pro 5G. As expected, the phone arrives as a rebrand of the Redmi 12 5G, which debuted in India earlier this week.

It is the third phone under the Xiaomi brand that is powered by the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 4 Gen 2 platform, after the China-exclusive Redmi Note 12R and the Redmi 12 5G.

Comparing the Redmi 12 5G and POCO M6 Pro 5G, the most notable difference between the two is the back cover and camera setup. The latter flaunts POCO’s signature rectangular camera module that extends from side to side, whereas the Redmi model has a more basic design but packs a secondary sensor for ultrawide shots.

Unlike its Redmi counterpart, the smartphone won’t be offered with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage. It will be available for purchase on Flipkart from August 9 in two colors — Forest Green and Power Black.
