The Chinese company Poco, which is a subsidiary of the world-famous Xiaomi brand, has presented to users the latest smartphone belonging to the budget segment, Poco M4 5G. It successfully combines the latest technology, high quality components, excellent assembly and many additional features, which we will tell you about in our press release.
First of all, I would like to note the rather productive MediaTek Dimensity 810 microprocessor, which supports high-speed 5G Internet. In addition, the device has support for Dynamic RAM, which allows you to increase the amount of RAM due to virtual. The smartphone received a pretty good stereo system, consisting of two speakers, providing a decent volume of the entire range. The fingerprint scanner is located on the end of the device, in addition, the user can give it additional functionality. For example, by double-clicking on it, you can take a screenshot of the screen. The camera deserves special attention, the resolution of which is as much as 50 megapixels – not every flagship gadget can boast of this, especially since it is additionally enhanced by a wide-angle lens with a capture angle of 119 degrees.
If we compare the device with smartphones of the same company of the previous generation, then significant improvements have occurred in terms of the display. The screen refresh rate is 90 Hz, it is equipped with a 240 Hz touch sensor, color reproduction fully complies with DCI-P3 standards, which makes it as close to natural as possible. The screen is quite contrasting, so it will be possible to see the smallest details even under bright sunlight. It has an anti-reflective coating and is additionally covered with a protective glass. Under the front camera, there is a quite familiar drop cutout, thanks to which it was possible to make the smartphone’s bezels thinner. Fast charging is provided by a 33W unit and a 5000mAh lithium-ion battery. Support for contactless payment is present, which is also very convenient.
Smartphone sales will start on November 11, 2021. At first, only two modifications of this gadget will be available to residents of European countries and our country – with 4 or 6 GB of RAM and 64 or 128 GB, respectively, of internal memory. The device enters the Chinese market with another modification: 8 GB of RAM and 128 or 256 GB of internal memory. The manufacturer plans to release similar models abroad, but this will be done a little later.
The display is based on an IPS matrix with a resolution corresponding to the FillHD + format. The diagonal of the LCD panel is 6.6 inches – the screen from the developers turned out to be quite large. We forgot to mention the resolution of the front camera – 16 megapixels. This is a pretty serious claim to success in the sense that with such a lens, selfies will turn out very clear, and video calls will become more comfortable than ever.
Let’s turn our attention to the back panel. It is decorated with a large dark insert covering almost the entire width of the lid, which gives the smartphone additional originality compared to models from other manufacturers. However, in this case, the manufacturers did not make any unique breakthrough – a similar design was borrowed from a similar smartphone of the previous generation. The processor frequency is 2.4 GHz, it is a single-chip six-nanometer system. Together with the Mali-G52 MC2 graphics accelerator, it was possible to achieve an instant response to touch and fast operation of the device even with quite demanding applications, including graphic editors, modern games for mobile devices.
The main camera is represented by only two modules. This is quite convenient, since this solution does not take on some of the resources of the processor, graphics accelerator and RAM. There are no image sensors provided here, from which in most cases there is no sense, all their functions have been taken over by the smartphone software. The device runs on the classic Android 11 operating system, which has MIUI 12.5 firmware. The device received protection against moisture according to the IP53 standard – it should not be dipped into water, but the smartphone can withstand a conversation in the pouring rain with ease. Key wireless modules – Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS-GLONASS, NFC are also present. They work very fast and stable.
In Russia, you can buy this smartphone at a very affordable price, especially since the first days from the start of sales there will be a very profitable promotion. A device with 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of internal memory will be available for $199 instead of $219, and a gadget with 6 GB of RAM and 128 ROM will cost $219 instead of $249.
