Poco F6 chipset and camera details revealed

Peter, 27 March 2024

We’ve known for a while that the Poco F6 will probably be powered by the Snapdragon 8s Gen 3, but now there is proof – found inside the HyperOS source code by the Android Headlines team.

The Poco F6, code name “Peridot” (and model number N16T), will follow in the path of the recent Xiaomi Civi 4 Pro, which was the first phone with the 8s Gen 3. However, the Poco might be based on a different Xiaomi model, the Redmi Note 13 Turbo (which is yet to be unveiled).

The 8s Gen 3 is an interesting mix of 8 Gen 2 and 8 Gen 3 design, though in some ways it is less powerful than either (e.g. no 8K video recording). Here’s how the three recent 8-series chips compare:

Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 Snapdragon 8s Gen 3 Snapdragon 8 Gen 3
Node TSMC 4nm TSMC 4nm TSMC 4nm
CPU (Prime) 1x Cortex-X3 @ 3.2/3.36GHz 1x Cortex-X4 @ 3.0GHz 1x Cortex-X4 @ 3.3/3.4GHz
CPU (Big) 2x Cortex-A715 @ 2.8GHz
2x Cortex-A710 @ 2.8GHz
4x Cortex-A720 @ 2.8GHz 3x Cortex-720 @ 3.15GHz
2x Cortex-720 @ 2.96GHz
CPU (Small) 3x Cortex-A510 @ 2.0GHz 3x Cortex-A520 @ 2.0GHz 2x Cortex-A520 @ 2.3GHz
RAM up to 24GB LPDDR5x 4,200MHz up to 24GB LPDDR5x 4,200MHz up to 24GB LPDDR5x 4,800MHz
Storage UFS 4.0 UFS 4.0 UFS 4.0
USB USB 3.1 USB 3.1 Gen 2 USB 3.1 Gen 2
GPU Adreno 740 Adreno 735 Adreno 750
5G modem X70 X70 X75
ISP triple 18-bit triple 18-bit triple 18-bit
Video 8K HDR @ 30fps
4K @ 120fps
4K HDR @ 60fps
1080p @ 240fps
8K HDR @ 30fps
4K @ 120fps

However, this chip was built exactly for phones like the Poco F6 – most of the power of a flagship for a lot less money. The Poco F5 offered impressive performance for its cost on the strength of the Snapdragon 7+ Gen 2 (which beat the 7 Gen 3 that came after it).

Anyway, the AH team also found details on the cameras. The main will have a 50MP Sony IMX882, a 1/2” sensor that was used in recent phones like the Realme 12 Pro and the OnePlus Ace 3V. The 8MP ultra wide will use the old IMX355. The selfie camera uses an OV20B from OmniVision.

The displays will be sourced from two suppliers: TCL and Tianma. Unfortunately, there is no word on the display specs just yet.

The Poco F6 should be announced in April or more likely in May. We may see the Redmi Note 13 Turbo launch in China before that. There should be a Poco F6 Pro model too - rumor has it that it will use the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chip (up from the 8+ Gen 1 on the 2023 Pro).

The Nubia Z60 Ultra is a pretty decent phone with good specs and no selfie camera hole. The only problem you'll put up with is the lackluster software and updates.

And oh, the brand that is mostly NSA-free are Huawei phones without sideloaded Google Services. 😉
