Poco has been promising the launch of the Poco M4 Pro 5G in India for a while now. Following a few teases over the previous few days, the company has officially confirmed that the Poco M4 Pro 5G will be released on February 15 in India. The phone, which made its worldwide debut last year, will replace the Poco M3 Pro, which was one of the first affordable 5G phones to launch in India last year.
Like the Poco M3, the Poco M4 Pro sports a blacked-out rectangular camera surround. The camera hump, on the other hand, is similar to that of the Redmi Note 11T 5G. The phone even appears to sport a blue gradient color scheme similar to the Redmi Note 11T, with Poco yellow and grey accents. A previous teaser revealed a comparable bezel-less display with a punch-hole camera cut-out in the center.
Poco has disclosed the M4 Pro 5G’s debut date via an official Twitter tweet. The brief video, titled “#StepUpUrGame,” highlights the phone’s design, which is identical to that of its worldwide edition. As a result, you’ll be able to have a Poco M3-style large back camera hump, but with a few changes, a punch-hole screen, and crazy hues.
Poco M4 Pro 5G Specifications
Rebadged Redmi smartphones with increased RAM and storage have always been featured in the Poco M series. Poco M3 Pro 5G was built on the Redmi Note 10T 5G last year, while the Poco M3 was primarily based on the Redmi 10 Prime this year. The Poco M2 and Poco M2 Pro were based on the Redmi 9 Prime and Redmi Note 9 Pro, respectively.
According to the specifications, you’ll receive a 6.6-inch Full HD+ LCD with a 90Hz refresh rate. This is somewhat larger than the phone’s predecessor’s 6.5-inch display. The MediaTek Dimensity 810 chipset will power the Poco M4 Pro.
Poco released this phone with up to 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage for worldwide markets. Let’s see what RAM+storage configurations India will receive.
On the back, there are two cameras, including a 50MP primary camera and an 8MP ultra-wide camera. The selfie camera has a resolution of 16 megapixels. This looks a lot like the Redmi Note 11T. The smartphone also comes with the same 5,000mAh battery as its predecessor. In comparison to the M3 Pro’s 18W fast charging, the gadget has a quicker 33W charging capability.
While the company focuses on the lower end of the scale, the Poco F3 GT flagship from last year was recently observed running a beta version of MIUI 13 based on Android 12. No other Xiaomi phone has received the Android 12 update yet.
It also has 5G connectivity, a USB Type-C connector, twin stereo speakers, a fingerprint scanner on the side, and more. It will most likely be available in black, blue, and the company’s characteristic yellow color schemes. In terms of price, we estimate it to be under Rs 20,000, making it competitive with phones like the Redmi Note 11T 5G, Realme 9i, and others.
