Poco's latest smartphones break cover ahead of official launch
- Poco’s two upcoming phones have leaked online.
- The POCO F4 is identical to the Redmi K40s, save for a different main camera.
- Meanwhile, the POCO X4 GT seems to be based on a previously released Redmi phone.
POCO confirmed that it will launch the POCO F4 and POCO X4 GT globally on June 23, adding that the former device will arrive with a Snapdragon 870 chipset. Now, it looks like the phones have been leaked in full.
We already know what the POCO F4 will look like owing to Indian reviewers posting images online. But ever-reliable German outlet WinFuture has fully detailed the specs too, and it’s indeed largely in line with the China-only Redmi K40s.
POCO F4: What to know?
Aside from the aforementioned Snapdragon 870 SoC, the new phone will be equipped with a 6.67-inch 120Hz OLED screen (2,400 x 1,080, Gorilla Glass 5), 8GB of RAM, and 256GB of storage.
Poco’s next F-series phone will also offer a 4,500mAh battery, 67W wired charging (no wireless charging here), and a triple rear camera system. The company previously confirmed that it’ll have a 64MP primary camera with OIS, but WinFuture adds that the phone also has an 8MP ultrawide camera and a 2MP macro sensor. A 20MP camera is said to handle selfies and video calls.
In other words, the only major difference between the POCO F4 and Redmi K40s seems to be the switch from a 48MP main shooter to a 64MP sensor.
POCO X4 GT: A powerful mid-ranger
We didn’t know much about the POCO X4 GT, but WinFuture claims that the phone is essentially a rebranded version of the Redmi Note 11T Pro Plus. In saying so, the given specs here seem more in line with the Redmi Note 11T Pro.
Expect a 6.6-inch 120Hz LCD panel (FHD+), a MediaTek Dimensity 8100 processor, 8GB of RAM, 256GB of storage, and a 5,080mAh battery with 67W wired charging. POCO’s next X-series phone is also tipped to arrive with a triple rear camera system (64MP main, 8MP ultrawide, 2MP macro), a 20MP selfie camera, and a 3.5mm port.
The two phones are also expected to get dual-SIM support and the POCO flavor of MIUI atop Android 12.
POCO F4, X4 GT pricing
The POCO F4 could be priced just under €430 (~$447) while the POCO X4 GT is said to have a price tag of under €400 (~$416). This puts the former within touching distance of the Pixel 6a and the Samsung Galaxy A53. Meanwhile, the latter is in line with devices like Samsung’s cheaper Galaxy A series phones.
We’ll need to wait for June 23 to see if these leaks do come to fruition, but it certainly looks like both phones might be worth a look if you need a well-rounded mid-ranger.
