I love seeing the Redmi Note 11 Pro 5G and Redmi Note 11s again! It’s like watching a replay but slightly edited
Poco is launching two “new” phones: the X4 Pro 5G and M4 Pro 4G, both of which are anticipated letdowns from the previous X3 Pro. The X4 Pro is just a rehashed Redmi Note 11 Pro 5G with styling that matches Poco’s, ditto for Poco M4 Pro.
The internal specs are similar, if not identical, to the Redmi Note 11 Pro 5G for the Poco X4 Pro 5G. Those are the 6.67in. 120Hz AMOLED screen, the ill-fated Qualcomm Snapdragon 695 processor, and a triple camera setup consisting of a 108mp camera, 8mp ultrawide, and a 2mp macro or depth sensor. While the internals are nearly identical, the design would be different just like how the Poco M4 Pro 5G is essentially just a Redmi Note 11.
The battery is 5000mAh with charging speeds for up to 67W (sound familiar?). The software will be slightly different, as the launcher will be based on the Poco Launcher which is in turn based on MIUI 13, which is again, in turn, based on Android 11.
The spec sheet was revealed early by Amazon France (post now deleted). So when the launch happens, this is most likely the specs we’re going to see.
Poco M4 Pro 4G is launching alongside the X4 Pro!
The Poco M4 Pro 4G is yet another Redmi rebrand, this time, on the Redmi Note 11s. It will come with similar or identical internals, but with a slightly different design and software, catering to Poco’s needs.
Like the Redmi Note 11s, the Poco M4 Pro 4G is backed by a 6.43in. AMOLED panel with 90Hz refresh rate, a Mediatek Helio G96 processor, a triple camera setup identical to the Pro 5G: 108mp main with 8mp ultrawide and two useless 2mp filler cameras (macro and depth). The battery would have a capacity of 5000mAh backed with 33W fast charging.
Pricing are yet to be announced for the Philippines, but our guess is that the two phones would be slightly cheaper than their Redmi variants, so as to not cannibalize their sales.
