Xiaomi-owned Poco debuted the X4 Pro 5G and M4 Pro at Europe’s MWC 2022, both of which offer fairly impressive specs at prices you’d normally find on mid-range phones.
Poco describes its X4 Pro 5G as a “flagship-level experience”, but priced at €299 (~$335) or €349 (~$391) depending on the storage tier you choose. The cheaper model comes with 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal storage, while the more expensive model offers 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage.
Poco’s X4 Pro 5G is the successor to the X3 GT Poco released last July, with similar specs at an affordable price tag. The X4 Pro has a 6.67-inch AMOLED DotDisplay display with a 120 Hz refresh rate and a 360 Hz sampling rate, and a resolution of 2400 x 1080 FHD+. On the back are three camera sensors: a 108 MP primary sensor, 8 MP ultra-wide lens and 2 MP micro camera, while the front of the device houses a 16 MP selfie camera.
In terms of processing power, the X4 Pro comes with an eight-core Snapdragon 695 5G processor. It also has a 5,000mAh battery – which Poco claims can power 15 hours of video playback or up to 25 hours of reading – and supports 67W fast charging.
Poco’s less expensive device, the M4 Pro, has a 6.43-inch AMOLED DotDisplay screen with a 90Hz refresh rate and a 180Hz touch rate. It comes with a 64 MP main camera, 8 MP ultra-wide camera, 2 MP macro lens on the back and 16 MP camera on the front. Like the X4 Pro, the M4 Pro has the same 2400 x 1800 FHD+ resolution and a 5,000 mAh battery, but swaps out the Snapdragon chip for an octa-core MediaTek Helio G96. The M4 Pro costs €219 (~$246) for 6 GB RAM and 128 GB storage, or €269 (~$302) for 8 GB/256 GB.
Both devices are available in black, blue and yellow. Poco says they will be available on March 2 for an early bird discount, with the X4 Pro starting at €249 (~$279) and M4 Pro starting at €179 (~$201). There is no information on a US release date, but it will be available from retailers, including Amazon.
