Poco has announced the launch of its latest mid-range smartphone Poco F4 5G in India. The phone was revealed globally along with the Poco X4 GT. The latter, however, may not be released in India as of now.
The Poco F4 5G comes with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 chipset along with 12GB of LPDDR5 RAM and up to 256GB of UFS 3.1 storage.
Poco’s previous F-series device – the Poco F3 GT was a gaming phone that came with physical game buttons. The Poco F4 5G, on the other hand, has the same chipset under the hood, but it’s a full-featured device for regular use.
The phone comes in various storage and memory combinations and the retail price of the Poco F4 5G can be found below. Interestingly, Poco is offering a 2 year warranty on this phone and even offers a six month warranty extension for Poco X3 Pro users who decide to upgrade.
The phone will go on sale from June 27th via Flipkart exclusively. The phone comes in Night Black, Nebula Green and Moonlight Silver color options.
As an introductory offer, the phone will be available for Rs 23,999, Rs 25,999 and Rs 29,999 respectively which includes Rs 1,000 instant discount and Rs 3,000 discount on SBI Bank and EMI debit/credit cards.
Poco F4 5G Specifications and Features
The Poco F series is a bit confusing. The Poco F1 was followed by the Poco F3 GT in India. Although there was a Poco F2 available in international markets, it never made it to Indian shores.
Now the Poco F3 GT is followed by a Poco F4 which basically shares the same chipset. Though the ideal successor to the Poco F3 GT is the F4 GT which has been introduced to international markets but not yet launched in India.
However, the Poco F4 5G has the reliable Snapdragon 870 SoC at its core, along with up to 12GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 256GB of UFS 3.1 internal storage.
The phone has a 6.67-inch AMOLED display with FHD+ resolution and 120Hz refresh rate. This is an AMOLED E4 display that offers up to 1300 nits of brightness and support for HDR10+ content.
Speaking of optics, the Poco F4 5G has a triple camera setup with a 64MP primary lens with OIS coupled with an 8MP and 2MP camera lens. There is a 20MP front camera for selfies and video calling.
Powering the phone is a 4,500mAh battery with support for 67W fast charging that should be able to fully charge the phone in less than hours. The Poco F4 5G comes with MIUI 13 based on Android 12 out of the box and has a side-mounted fingerprint sensor.
