The Poco M4 Pro 5G has a launch date in India! In a social media tweet posted earlier, Poco clarified that the M4 Pro 5G will be made official on February 15 via an online launch event. Poco also revealed what the phone looks like – spoiler alert, it might not surprise you if you’ve seen the Poco M3 and Redmi Note 11T 5G from this year. Rumors suggest that the Poco M4 Pro will likely be a rebranded version of the Redmi Note 11T, but with a new design and improved RAM/storage specs.
The Poco M4 Pro has the same blacked out rectangular camera frame as the Poco M3. The camera bump, however, is reminiscent of that of the Redmi Note 11T 5G. The phone even appears to have a similar blue gradient color scheme as the Redmi Note 11T, accompanied by standard Poco yellow and gray colors. A previous teaser also confirmed a similar bezel-less display design with a center hole-punch camera cutout.

What remains to be seen is how Poco prices the M4 Pro 5G in India, given that there has been a lot of activity in the sub- ₹20,000 spaces for 5G smartphones lately. The M4 Pro 5G could be based on the Dimensity 810 chipset, have a 90Hz refresh rate IPS LCD display, a 5,000mAh battery with 33W fast charging, and Xiaomi’s favorite 50MP primary rear camera.
While the company caters to the affordable segment of the market, its flagship Poco F3 GT from last year recently received the test version of MIUI 13 based on Android 12. No other Xiaomi phone has received the version yet. Android 12.
