The POCO M4 5G is essentially a rebadged version of the Redmi 10 5G, save for the tweaked design and the front camera. It features an eye-catching two-tone design that we have seen on a few other POCO phones as well. The front of the phone is dominated by a 6.58-inch LCD FHD+ panel which offers a 90Hz refresh rate and 240Hz touch sampling rate. Under the hood, the phone is powered by MediaTek’s Dimensity 700 SoC, coupled with 4GB/6GB RAM and 64GB/128GB storage. On the back, there’s a dual-camera setup comprising a 50MP main shooter and a 2MP depth sensor. The front camera is a 8MP shooter, which is an upgrade over the Redmi 10 5G’s 5MP camera.

While the POCO M4 5G packs the same 5,000mAh battery as its more powerful brother POCO M4 Pro, its charging speed tops out at 18W. Other highlights of the phone include a side-mounted fingerprint scanner, IP52 rating, Bluetooth 5.1, and a microSD card slot. It runs Android 12 out of the box with MIUI 13 on top.

Pricing & Availability

The POCO M4 Pro is priced at ₹12,999 for the base model and ₹14,999 for the 6GB/128GB model. It will go on sale on May 5 via Flipkart.
