Xiaomi has announced a new smartphone, the Poco M6 Pro, and if the proposed spec sheet and price estimates are to be believed, it may be a serious contender for the best budget smartphone of 2023. So what's the catch? 

The bottom line is, the Poco M6 Pro has some impressive specs for a very impressive price. It offers a Snapdragon 4 Gen 2 chip, plus a 50-megapixel dual AI camera for a staggeringly low price of just $132/£103. The M6 Pro is only available in India for the time being, but like other Poco phones, will eventually make its way around the world (rumoured for a US release of December).
