The use of MediaTek Dimensity technology offers users flagship-level performance while maintaining lower power consumption, Poco claimed. This is a 2.2GHz octa-core processor paired with the Mali-G57 GPU, which is touted to be able to load and play graphics-heavy games and video.
The 90Hz refresh rate on its 6.5-inch FHD DotDisplay also allows for smoother user experience and faster visuals, with the DynamicSwitch feature automatically switching the display’s refresh rate between 90Hz, 60Hz, 50Hz and 30Hz depending on the content. This will help the device save power, the company claimed.
