While both phones feature a 50MP main Sony LYT 600 sensor with OIS for clear photos and videos, there are some minor variations.

The selfie camera has a resolution of 20 MP on the Poco F6, while the Poco F6 Pro has a 16 MP front camera system. While these aren’t exactly top-level systems, we’re sure the images produced will be impressive considering the price.
