The most recent Xiaomi Poco phones have arrived on the international market after weeks of leaks and teasers. As rebranded versions of the Redmi K40S and Redmi Note 11T Pro for the international market, the Poco F4 5G and X4 GT have now received official status.
Here is what the two phones are all about.
Poco F4 5G
The Poco F4 5G has a similar design to the Redmi K40S but somewhat different specifications. The screen is a 6.67-inch AMOLED panel with a 120Hz refresh rate and a 1080p resolution. It boasts a max brightness of 1300 nits and supports HDR10+. A 20MP selfie camera is housed in the punch-hole.
The phone’s flagship Snapdragon 870 SoC with up to 12GB of RAM and 256GB of storage is exactly what the rumours said it would be. The phone will start up with MIUI 13 over Android 12. The Redmi K40S’s 48MP camera has been upgraded to 64MP with OIS. This is included with a 2MP macro camera and an 8MP ultrawide camera.

A 2MP macro camera and an 8MP ultrawide camera are also featured.
Poco X4 GT
The Poco X4 GT, as was previously reported, is the Redmi Note 11T Pro’s international variant. This indicates that it has the same 6.6-inch IPS LCD screen with 1080p resolution, 144Hz refresh rate, and Dolby Vision support. It has a side-mounted fingerprint sensor and Gorilla Glass 5 for protection. A 20MP wide-angle camera is used for selfies.
The upper mid-range Dimensity 8100 SoC, with up to 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage, powers the device. It launches MIUI 13 for Poco right away and Android 12 out of the box. A 64MP primary sensor, an 8MP ultrawide camera, and a 2MP macro lens are all part of the camera configuration on the rear. Both 4K and 1080p video may be recorded with this camera.
Battery capacity stands at 5,080 mAh with 67W fast charging.
Poco X4 GT has a starting price of €379.
