On top of all this, the camera module has a circular ring around it and a text which says 64MP AI Super Camera. lastly, there huge POCO branding on the rear.
Now on to the specification, There’s a 6.67-inch FULLHD+ display with 120Hz high-refresh-rate & 240 touch sampling rate though there’s no mention of the display panel & since it has a side-mounted fingerprint sensor its probably an LCD panel like the Poco X2. There’s Corning Gorilla Glas 5 protection, HRD 10 & Widevine L1 support as well.
Under the hood, the handset is powered by all-new Qualcomm Snapdragon 732 processor which has 15% better GPU performance though it has same Kyro 470 CPU as Snapdragon 730G though the clock speed of SD 732G is just a tad bit higher at 2.3GHz compared to 2.2GHz of snapdragon 730G.

Other sensors are an upgraded 13MP ultra-wide-angle lens ( from 8MP) & a 2MP macro and lastly a 2MP depth sensor. For the front, there’s a 20MP selfie shooter.
