Xiaomi’s new Poco X6, X6 Pro and M6 Pro are already available on Amazon Germany


Xiaomi unveiled new Poco mid-rangers earlier this week and they are already available and with some discounts too.

Starting with the Poco X6, this one is powered by the Snapdragon 7s Gen 2 chipset (paired with 12GB of RAM) and has a surprisingly awesome display for a sub-€300 phone – a 6.67” OLED panel with 120Hz refresh rate and 1,220 x 2,712px resolution, plus 12-bit colors and Dolby Vision. The camera is admittedly less awesome with a small 64MP sensor in the main and an 8MP ultra wide (118°). The 5,100mAh battery with 67W fast charging is pretty good, though. And you get stereo speakers plus a 3.5mm headphone jack.

That’s a lot of RAM and plenty of storage too, but it is the older UFS 2.2 standard. The Poco X6 Pro goes up to UFS 4.0 and also switches the chipset to a Dimensity 8300. The rest of the phone is more or less the same, so it’s hard to justify the price increase. We have a unit at the office, so expect a review soon – and our Poco X6 review is already out.

There’s one more – the Poco M6 Pro was also unveiled on Thursday. It too has 12GB of RAM and 512GB storage for a bit less money than the X6. However, the price difference is too small – this is a 4G-only phone (Helio G99) and the 6.67” 120Hz AMOLED display is missing the 12-bit goodness and has a lower resolution (FHD+). There’s a microSD slot, but there’s little else that the X6 doesn’t have.

Google has committed to supporting the Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro for 7 years – both with software updates and with spare parts. And Google’s Pixel Feature Drops do add cool features on the regular. However, the Pixels are quite pricey in Europe.

You can also grab a Pixel Watch 2 in Bluetooth or LTE flavor. It has ECG built-in and the suite of Fitbit fitness tracking features. Compared to the original Pixel Watch, this one has longer battery life thanks to the more efficient chipset.

Here’s an interesting pair of TWS buds – the Huawei FreeClip. Instead of relying on a tight fit to stay in your ear, this clip around your ear making them more stable and more comfortable. And these are open-ear design, so they don’t block sounds around you. Another kooky feature is that there is no left and right bud, they are exactly the same shape and you can use one and swap it to whichever ear you want. Note that these cost €200 normally, but Amazon is throwing in a free Huawei Band 8.

For a more traditional TWS design, check out the Google Pixel Buds Pro. These are a real babel fish and can translate spoken language on the fly.

Anker’s new 20,000mAH power bank promises 200W of output, but that means 100W over both USB-C ports simultaneously. There is also a USB-A port that does up to 65W (even if one of the USB-C ports is in use). With all three ports in use, you get 100W + 60W + 40W.
