Poco’s latest affordable flagships offer high refresh rate displays, powerful SoCs, and 67W fast charging

Xiaomi’s sub-brand Poco launched two new affordable flagships today — the Poco X4 GT and the Poco F4. As we highlighted recently, both models are rebranded Redmi phones featuring the same hardware, but with some minor changes on the camera front.

The Poco X4 GT is a rebranded Redmi Note 11T Pro (Chinese variant), featuring MediaTek’s Dimensity 8100 SoC, a 144Hz IPS LCD, and a 5,080mAh battery with 67W fast charging support. On the other hand, the Poco F4 is a rebranded Redmi K40S and it packs a Snapdragon 870 chip, a 120Hz AMOLED display, and a 4,500mAh battery with 67W fast charging support.

Although the Poco X4 GT and Poco F4 are rebranded Redmi devices, Poco has made a couple of changes to set the phones apart from their Redmi counterparts. For instance, Poco has upgraded the front-facing camera on the Poco X4 GT, and it features a 20MP sensor instead of the 16MP sensor found on the Redmi Note 11T Pro. The company has upgraded the cameras on the Poco F4 as well, and it features a 64MP primary camera instead of the 48MP main camera on the Redmi K40S.

In terms of the design, Poco hasn’t made any significant changes. Both phones look pretty much identical to their Redmi counterparts, with the only noticeable difference being the Poco branding. Even the color options for both phones are identical, with Poco offering three color variants each for both models. The Poco X4 GT comes in Black, Blue, and Silver colorways, while the Poco F4 comes in Moonlight Silver, Night Black, and Nebula Green.

Other noteworthy features include a side-mounted fingerprint scanner, dual speakers, 5G (SA/NSA) support, Wi-Fi 6, NFC, an X-axis linear vibration motor, and an IR blaster.

The Poco X4 GT and Poco F4 run Poco’s custom Android 12 skin based on MIUI 13, which also includes a few changes. But it’s more or less the same MIUI you get on Xiaomi and Redmi smartphones.
