Poco also offers some AI features, such as AI Eraser Pro for detecting and erasing unwanted elements from images, filling in gaps with matching background details, and AI Bokeh, which adds a professional touch to portrait photography, creating a pleasing background blur that highlights the subject.


The Poco comes equipped with a 50-megapixel Sony IMX882 primary camera and an 8-megapixel ultra-wide lens on the back. A good thing is that the brand has ditched the pointless 2-megapixel macro camera.

The default camera app offers photography modes, such as Pro, Night, 50MP, Short Video, Panorama, VLOG, Slow motion, Time-lapse, Dual video, AI watermark, Long exposure, and Pro. By default, the main camera captures 12-megapixel photos, which come out good as long as there is sufficient lighting. The dynamic range is impressive, and there is almost natural color reproduction. The primary camera supports up to 2x in-sensor zoom, but one gripe is that there is no zoom option in portrait mode. The low-light photos are also good, but I couldn’t notice a major difference between the regular and night mode shots in many scenarios. However, the latter does help in reducing light bleeding and adding a dash of clarity in darker areas.

The ultrawide shots are good with sufficient detail, but the colors appear a bit muted. The 20-megapixel front camera offers decent performance in good lighting with reasonable skin tones. The portrait mode also works fine. However, the quality becomes mediocre in low-light scenarios.

When it comes to video shooting, the Poco F6’s primary camera can capture up to 4K videos at 60fps. However, OIS support is only for up to 30fps FHD+ videos. Overall, the camera performance of the device is good, but nothing extraordinary, as the device is primarily built for gaming.

The Poco F6 also offers some handy features, such as NFC and an IR blaster. The fingerprint sensor works as expected.
