Poco M4 5G is very similar in its characteristicson the globally announced Redmi 10 5G smartphone and on its “Chinese copy” Redmi Note 11E. But the front camera is slightly different. Well, looks are different. Poco is expectedly made in its signature unique style.

Iron. The popular MediaTek Dimensity 700 medium-power chipset, so we expect 300-350 thousand points in AnTuTu.

Memory. 4 or 6 GB of RAM, 64 or 128 GB of permanent memory. There is support for memory cards.

IPS screen with a slightly old-fashioned waterdrop notch. Diagonal 6.58 ″ (104 cm²), resolution 1080 × 2408, which gives 401 ppi. Slightly increased refresh rate to 90 Hz.

The usual good 5000 mAh battery.Charging is 18W, but the included charger is even slightly better at 22.5W. The presence of reverse charging at 5 watts is mentioned. (I suspect that twin brothers may also have it, but this is clearly not reflected in their performance characteristics).

A simple front camera with a resolution of 8 MP (the brothers generally have 5 MP). The rear camera is dual, 50 + 2 MP (the second module is a symbolic depth sensor).

There is dual-band Wi-Fi, Type-C, an IR emitter, a gyroscope, and a side-mounted fingerprint scanner.

NFC support is not mentioned. Most likely it doesn't exist.

The prices are humane. ₹12,999 (₽12,300, $171) and ₹14,999 (₽14,200, $197) for the 4+64 and 6+128 GB versions, respectively.
