Images of the upcoming Poco F4 5G have surfaced – like the Poco F4 GT, this phone is related to the Redmi K-series. The two step camera bump with three lenses arranged in a triangle show a striking resemblance to the Redmi K50, K50 Pro and K40S.
Unconfirmed info suggests that the Poco F4 5G is based on that last one, the Poco K40S. It’s not identical as the label on the back clearly states “64MP OIS” whereas the K40S has a 48MP camera (with OIS).
Camera changes aside, the new Poco F phone should have a 6.67 ”AMOLED display (FHD +, 120Hz), 6 / 128GB memory configuration, a 4,500mAh battery with 67W fast charging (0-100% in 38 minutes), stereo speakers and a side-mounted fingerprint reader. And probably an 8MP ultra wide and 2MP macro cameras on the back, plus a 20MP cam on the front.
There should be a Snapdragon 870 inside – a tried and true chipset, but a couple of generations behind the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 that the Poco F4 GT uses (which itself is based on the Redmi K50 Gaming).
The GT model launched globally in late April / early May starting with an early bird price of € 500 (for an 8 / 128GB model). When the K40S launched in China in mid-March, its base price was CNY 1,800 for a 6 / 128GB model, which converts to $ 270 / € 250 / ₹ 21,000. Which is to say that we expect the Poco F4 5G to cost somewhere in the middle. For reference, the Poco F3 (which used the same chipset, by the way) launched at € 350 and is now down to € 260.
