Next-level mobile gaming: The power of the POCO F6

5:44 p.m. June 19, 2024

Hardcore mobile gamers know one thing: intense gaming sessions call for a phone that can always keep up.

As mobile games get more sophisticated while still delivering satisfying action, a phone like the POCO F6 is the kind of device that leaves no doubt about sheer gaming power. That’s because it’s packed with top-of-the-line features that ensure a next-level gaming experience.

  1. A processor that can handle anything

No matter your mobile game of choice, you can be assured that it will never slow down or crash thanks to the POCO F6’s Snapdragon 8s Gen 3 processor. This chip can reliably handle any new games and apps, regardless of their demand.

  1. A smooth high-refresh-rate display

The POCO F6’s 120Hz CrystalRes AMOLED display makes your whole gaming experience silky smooth and responsive. All the visuals pop out in full vivid and stunning color, making sure you never miss a single crucial detail.

  1. A phone that always stays cool

Gamers know that intense gaming means the phone can get as hot as the action. However, the POCO F6 stays cool, thanks to its LiquidCool Technology 4.0, which ventilates and regulates the device’s internal temperatures so that you can stay comfortable for as long as possible.

  1. A battery that lasts the whole day

The most important thing you need to think about when you’re gaming? It’s how long the phone is going to last. Other phones’ batteries might not be able to keep up during a marathon gaming session, but not the POCO F6—if the charge runs low, it can quickly get back up to 100% with the 90W turbo-charging tech.

So when you need a new phone that needs to catch up with you when you’re destroying the competition, look no further than the POCO F6. It may just be the winning edge that you need in your next game.

The POCO F6 is exclusively available on Shopee and Lazada in three striking colors: Black, Green, and Titanium. The 8GB + 256GB variant is available for P21,999 and the 12GB + 512GB variant retails for P24,999.
