Similarly, the smartphone is P2i certified against minor splashes which means they have improved their reliability and allow them to survive liquid exposure from everyday accidents.

Performance and Memory

Here, the smartphone is packed with Helio G35 SoC which is a budget-oriented gaming chipset from MediaTek. Thus, To handle the resources intelligently the smartphone supports HyperEngine Technology which enables a lag-free experience.

The highlight here is the Poco Clean Experience which enables users to have an ad-free experience. Also, the company also claimed to have optimized the MIUI launcher and enhanced the responsiveness of the system animation.

Camera

Talking about the camera at the rear, inside the square camera module there is the triple camera setup enclosed along with the LED flash. There is a 13MP camera sensor with, f/2.2, 28mm (wide), 1.0µm, PDAF. It is accompanied by a 2MP portrait camera and another 2MP sensor for macro shots. The rear camera setup supports AI Scene Detection, Phase Detection AF, and Face Recognition. On the front for selfies and video calls, the waterdrop notch holds the 5MP selfie camera.

Furthermore, for video recording, the smartphone is capable of recording 1080p@30fps on both back and front. Other features include LED Flash, HDR, etc.
