Xiaomi is continuing to fill in its Poco line-up, which may soon welcome a new member of the M-family. Like other devices of the brand, this one appears to be a variation of an existing Xiaomi phone with some tweaks to make it ready for the global market.
Leaked images show that the Poco M4 5G will have a 6.58” LCD with FHD+ resolution and 90 Hz refresh rate (240 Hz touch sampling rate). This sounds similar to the Pro model, but this one will be powered by a lower tier of MediaTek chipset – the Dimensity 700 (instead of 810).
The camera setup follows the same path – keeping a 50 MP sensor for the main camera, but dropping the ultra wide module (replaced with a 2 MP depth sensor). Also, the front-facing camera is down to 8 MP. Well, “down” compared to the pricier Poco M4 Pro, it’s actually an improvement over the 5 MP camera of the similar Redmi 10 5G.
Another improvement over the Redmi is an IP52 rating – not good enough to survive a dive, but enough to save the phone from an accidental splash of water. The M4 5G will reportedly weigh 200g and employs the trademark Poco design with a full-width camera island.
Anyway, it will have a 5,000 mAh battery, quite probably with fast charging (e.g. the Redmi 10 5G does 18W).
The Poco F4 GT was just announced earlier this week and we haven’t seen anything about the next Poco event yet, but we expect to start seeing teasers soon.
