Poco launched two new phones today in the global market. These are the Poco M4 Pro and Poco X4 Pro 5G. We talked about the Poco M4 Pro in our previous article, and that phone is rebadged Redmi Note 11S with a different camera setup. The X4 Pro 5G is also a rebrand of an existing Redmi device, the Redmi Note 11 Pro 5G (global). So, it comes with Snapdragon 695 5G SOC, a 120Hz AMOLED, 67W charging, and more.

Design-wise, it has a different camera module design as compared to Redmi Note 11 Pro 5G, but that is something everything Poco phone has when compared to the Redmi device that it is similar to. The back is made of glass, and the sides are flat. There is a fingerprint scanner embedded in the power button on the side. The phone has stereo speakers and a 3.5mm headphone jack.

Under the hood, there is a Snapdragon 695 5G SOC which is way less powerful than the Snapdragon 860 that the Poco X3 Pro of last year had. But, as the name suggests, the X4 Pro 5G is a 5G phone hence performance is not the main priority here. Moreover, unlike Poco X3 Pro, the company did not do any cost-cutting in other areas like the display or the build or the cameras.

There is a  6.67-inch 120Hz AMOLED with a Full-HD+ resolution and Gorilla Glass 5 protection. The peak brightness of this panel is 1,200 nits, and there is up to 360Hz touch-response rate.

Speaking of the cameras, there is a triple camera setup on the back where the primary camera has a 108MP Samsung HM2 sensor that is paired with an 8MP ultrawide and a 2MP macro camera. There is no 4K video-recording support, however. For selfies, you get a 16MP camera.

The battery size is 5,000mAh, and the phone supports 67W fast charging. Some other features include a Z-axis linear motor, NFC, LiquidCool Technology 1.0 Plus, etc.

Speaking of the price, Poco M4 Pro comes in three colors named Laser blue, Laser black, and POCO yellow. Here is the early-bird pricing –

  • 6GB + 128GB – €269
  • 8GB + 256GB – €319
