The POCO M4 Pro 5G is essentially a rebranded version of the vanilla Redmi Note 11 that was recently launched in China. However, as always, POCO has made several aesthetic changes that give the phone a unique identity.

The POCO M4 Pro 5G features a 6.6-inch LCD with a 90Hz refresh rate and DCI-P3 wide color gamut support. On the inside, the phone packs a MediaTek 810 SoC, a step up from the Dimensity 700 on the POCO M3 Pro. The chipset is paired with 4GB/6GB RAM and 64GB/128GB UFS 2.2 storage.

 

While the POCO M4 Pro 5G packs fewer cameras than its predecessor, it’s a better camera system overall. There’s a 50MP primary shooter and an 8MP ultra-wide camera. The front camera has also been upgraded from 8MP to 16MP.

The POCO M4 Pro 5G packs a 5,000mAh battery with support for 33W fast charging. Other highlights of the phone include a side-mounted fingerprint scanner, stereo speakers, X-axis leaner motor, NFC, 5G, and IR blaster.

Pricing & Availability

The POCO M4 Pro 5G will go on sale starting November 11 in various European markets via POCO’s official website, Amazon, AliExpress, and other e-commerce platforms. The phone will be available at an early bird price of  €199 for the base 4GB/64GB model and  €219 for the 6GB/128GB model.
