Announcement. Poco M4 Pro 4G – nice middle class (+AliExpress price and first reviews)

Xiaomi introduced yesterday, the lastwinter day, smartphone Poco M4 Pro 4G. More precisely, officially the device is simply called Poco M4 Pro, but to avoid confusion, you have to call it a little more authentic, because there is also Poco M4 Pro 5G.

In appearance, the newcomer is very similar to his "namesake", but in terms of characteristics, he is very far from him. So I don't see the point in comparing them.

In fact, according to the characteristics of Poco M4 Pro 4Gvery similar to the Redmi Note 11S announced at the end of January. The appearance is different, but according to the characteristics - almost twins. Only Redmi has a better main camera.

Redmi Note 11S

About the characteristics.

Chipset - MediaTek Helio G96. The power is average, around three hundred thousand AnTuTu points. RAM 6 or 8 GB, permanent memory 128 or 256 GB. There is support for memory cards.

AMOLED screen, diagonal 6.43″, resolution 1080 × 2400 (409 ppi). Slightly increased refresh rate - up to 90 Hz it is here.

The battery is good, 5000 mAh. Charging high-speed, 33 W. Full charge time is about an hour, as I heard out of the corner of my ear from the first reviews.

Cameras. The front camera has a resolution of 16 MP.At the back there is a trio of 64 + 8 + 2 MP from the main camera, wide-angle and macro module. As the main sensor, apparently, a very modest OmniVision OV64B is used. (Redmi Note 11S is much like a more serious Samsung ISOCELL HM2 with a resolution of 108 MP).

Other. There is an NFC module. Side fingerprint scanner. There are two speakers. Wi-Fi fifth, dual-band. There is an IR emitter.


For Russia, they promise ₽22490 ($240) / ₽25490 ($272) for versions 6 + 128 and 8 + 256 GB, respectively. For Europe - €229.9 (₽24,000, $257) and €279.9 (₽29,200, $313).

The smartphone page has already appeared on AliExpress.They promise prices of $179 (₽21,700) and $229 (₽27,700) as part of the sale starting on March 2. Compared to European prices, it looks delicious. But how much it will be translated into rubles at the internal dollar exchange rate of AliExpress, we will find out only tomorrow.

The smartphone has already fallen into the hands of reviewers. I hide the first reviews under the cat.
