The Fossibot F106 Pro, released in April 2024, builds upon the F102‘s foundation, offering a more powerful speaker, improved night vision capabilities, and a slightly slimmer design. Nevertheless, the F106 Pro is better considered as a separate device than a successor to the F102 since the hardware seem to be downgraded. Let’s explore its specifications:

Network

The F106 Pro maintains the same broad network compatibility as the F102, supporting a wide range of 2G, 3G, and 4G bands. Again, verifying compatibility with your specific carrier is recommended.

Durable & Lighter Build

Like its predecessors, the F106 Pro prioritizes durability with IP68/IP69K dust and water resistance and MIL-STD-810H drop protection. It boasts a slightly slimmer profile compared to the F102, measuring 174.2 x 82.4 x 22.3 mm and weighing 470 grams.

Large Display

The F106 Pro retains the same impressive 6.58-inch TFT LCD touchscreen display with 16 million colors and a 1080 x 2408 pixel resolution as the F102. It offers a 20:9 aspect ratio and a pixel density of 401 PPI for sharp visuals.

Upgraded Software & Powerful Performance

The F106 Pro takes a step forward with the latest Google Android 14 operating system. The Chipset and memory on the other hand seems to be a downgrade since it is powered by the Helio G85 and come with 8GB RAM, instead of the Helio G99 and 12GB RAM on the Fossibot F102 model.

The phone comes with 256GB of UFS storage just like it predecessor, and it offers up to 7GB of virtual RAM expansion. Storage can be also expanded with a microSD card up to 512GB, although this will take up the space for the second SIM card.

Camera System with Night Vision

The F106 Pro’s camera system features a downgrade in the main sensor resolution compared to the F102 (48MP OV48B vs 108MP Samsung HM2). However, it retains the 20MP Sony IMX350 night vision sensor for excellent low-light photography. The front-facing camera is also downgraded to a 16MP Sony IMX471 sensor. Both rear and front cameras can record videos in up to 2K resolution at 30fps.

Standard Connectivity & Navigation

Similar to the F102, the F106 Pro offers Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity, WiFi 2.4G-5G, and USB Type-C 2.0 for charging and data transfer. Navigation is aided by a full suite of global navigation satellite systems (A-GPS, GLONASS, BeiDou, Galileo, and QZSS). The phone includes essential sensors like a fingerprint scanner (now side-mounted), accelerometer, proximity sensor, and compass.

Large Battery & Unique Features

The F106 Pro boasts a substantial 12,000mAh Li-Po battery, offering ample power for extended use. It also supports 30W fast charging for quicker replenishment. The F106 Pro comes in a new grey color option. A key highlight is the upgrade to 103dB loudspeakers, promising significantly louder and more powerful audio compared to the F102. The F106 Pro retains the 3W, 3-level adjustable camp light with an impressive 512 Lumen brightness, perfect for illuminating outdoor environments. NFC and HAC support are also present.

While the Fossibot F106 Pro offers some improvements, the core performance may be slightly lower than the F102 due to the different chipset. However, the upgraded speakers, night vision camera, and slightly slimmer design might be attractive features for some users. As always, network compatibility verification is important before purchasing. The full specification of the device are contained in the table below,
