Redmi K50G makes its way to international markets as the POCO F4 GT

In February this year, Xiaomi’s sub-brand Redmi launched an affordable flagship gaming phone called the Redmi K50G. The device featured Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chip, a high refresh rate FHD+ AMOLED display, a 4,700mAh battery with 120W wired fast charging support, and a 64MP triple camera setup. Although Redmi only launched the device in China at the time, Xiaomi’s other sub-brand POCO has now brought it to international markets as the POCO F4 GT.

While POCO typically makes some design changes when launching a rebranded device, the Xiaomi sub-brand hasn’t made any significant changes with the POCO F4 GT. The device features the same eccentric design as the Redmi K50G, with the branding being the only noticeable difference between the two devices. In fact, the Black and Silver variants of the devices are virtually identical save for the branding. The POCO F4 GT, however, also comes in a new Cyber Yellow colorway.

POCO hasn’t made any notable changes on the hardware front either, and the POCO F4 GT features the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chip, 6.67-inch FHD+ AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate, 4,700mAh battery with 120W wired fast charging support, the same 64MP triple camera setup on the back, and a 20MP selfie shooter.

It even features the magnetic pop-up triggers for gaming found on the Redmi K50G, the CyberEngine super wideband X-axis linear motor, and a side-mounted fingerprint scanner.

In terms of connectivity, the POCO F4 GT offers 5G (SA+NSA) support, 4G LTE, Wi-Fi 6E, Bluetooth 5.2, and NFC. The phone also offers symmetrical quad speakers for an immersive gaming experience, Dolby Atmos certification, Hi-Res Audio certification, and Hi-Res Audio Wireless certification.

The software is likely the only significant difference between the two phones, but MIUI 13 for POCO merely offers some cosmetic changes when compared to MIUI 13 on the Redmi K50G.

The POCO X4 GT starts at 599 euro ($532) for the 8GB+128GB storage model, and 699 euro for the 12GB+256GB setup. However, there is an early bird special for people who order between April 28 to May 7 that shaves 100 euros off each model. The POCO X4 GT will be available on Amazon, Lazada, AliExpress, as well as POCO’s online store.
