Basically, a Redmi Note 11 5G with Poco branding.
Xiaomi spin-off Poco launched the Poco M4 Pro 5G for the global market on Tuesday. This is a follow up to the Poco M3 Pro 5G—Poco’s first 5G phone—released earlier in the year. It’s basically a Redmi Note 11 5G with Poco branding. Price starts at Euros 229 which roughly translates to Rs 19,600. Alongside the Poco M4 Pro 5G, Poco has also announced a new Moonlight Silver colour option for the existing Poco F3.
Poco M4 Pro 5G specs and features
Poco M4 Pro 5G comes with a 6.6-inch 1080p IPS LCD display with a 90Hz refresh rate and hole punch cut-out—this houses a 16MP selfie camera. Touch sampling rate is set to 240Hz and there is Corning Gorilla Glass 3 for protection.
Under the hood, the phone has a MediaTek Dimensity 810 system-on-chip which is paired with up to 6GB RAM and up to 128GB storage. This is expandable. Software is Android 11-based MIUI 12.5 for Poco.
For photography, the Poco M4 Pro 5G comes with dual cameras—a 50MP wide and another 8MP ultra-wide-angle.
Rounding off the package are a 5,000mAh battery with 33W fast charging, dual speakers, and NFC.
The design of the phone is familiar. On first look, it seems like a cross between the Poco M3 Pro and Redmi Note 11. Poco will offer the Poco M4 Pro 5G in its signature yellow hue along with blue and black options. Biometrics will be handled by a side-mounted fingerprint reader.
