Earlier last week, Poco officially announced the launch date of its next X series smartphone Poco X4 Pro 5G. The launch event was set for 28th March at noon. As promised, Poco has launched the Poco X4 Pro 5G smartphone in India. The Poco X4 Pro 5G is succeeding the highly popular Poco X3 Pro launched last year. If we take a look at the highlights of Poco X4 Pro 5G. It packs a 120Hz Super AMOLED Display, Snapdragon 695 SoC, and 67W Charging. We will be taking a more detailed look at Poco X4 Pro 5G specifications and features.
Let’s first with the design of the Poco X4 Pro 5G. The smartphone looks identical to most of the other budget and mid-range smartphones from the front. It has a tiny chin at the top and bottom. Poco X4 Pro used the punch-hole display to achieve this design, which we have been habitual of seeing on every other smartphone. Poco X4 Pro 5G has a unique rectangular camera module on the rear panel. The entire camera module goes across the top back panel. At the bottom of the rear panel, you will find written 5G. Overall the design is looking good in this price bracket.
Moving to Display, Poco X4 Pro 5G has a big 6.7-inch Full HD+ Super AMOLED Display with a 120Hz refresh rate and 360Hz touch sampling rate. The Display has a peak brightness of 1200 Nits and supports for DCI P3 color gamut. Poco likes to call this Display Reality Flow. On paper, the Display of Poco X4 Pro 5G checks every box. It is an AMOLED panel with a higher refresh rate, and you shouldn’t face any issues while consuming content.
Powering the Poco X4 Pro 5G is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 695 chipset. It is a relatively new chip launched in the Snapdragon 6 Series. It is built on a 6nm process and supports both Sub-6 GHz and mmWave 5G. It has Kryo 660 CPU and Adreno 619 GPU. The processor is competent, and you should expect good performance on Poco X4 Pro 5G.
Coming to the Optics department, Poco X4 Pro 5G packs a triple camera setup. The primary sensor is a 64MP Samsung sensor with an F/1.8 aperture. Many of you might be thinking about why it has a 64MP sensor when its global version has a 108MP sensor. We don’t know why Poco has done that on the Indian variant. The other two sensors are an 8MP Ultra-Wide sensor with an F/2.2 aperture and a 2MP Macro Sensor. Poco X4 Pro has a 16MP selfie shooter with an F/2.45 aperture for taking selfies and doing video calls.
It has a 5000mAh battery supporting 67W Sonic Charging with MMT technology. The device is said to be fully charged in a mere 41 minutes. Other than that Poco X4 Pro has a side-mounted fingerprint sensor. It might sound silly as Poco has not gone with an in-display fingerprint sensor even when it has a Super AMOLED Display.
Lastly, pricing and availability, Poco X4 Pro 5G is launched in three different storage variants in India. The 6GB+64GB variant is priced at 18,999, 6GB+128GB at 19,999 and 8GB+128GB variant is priced at 21,999. You can get all these variants for 1000 rupees cheaper if you use an HDFC Credit and Debit Card. The first sale will be on 5th April 2022. What is your take on Poco X4 Pro 5G?
