Poco follows up with two new smartphones in the Android mid-range, which are ranked below the recently introduced F4 GT. Poco F4 and Poco X4 GT have individual advantages and possible disadvantages depending on your needs. The starting prices are at a comparable level: 399.90 euros for the F4 and 379.90 euros for the X4 GT. The Poco F4 is the little brother of the F4 GT presented at the end of April this year, which brought the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 in a smartphone for 600 euros.
The F4 does without Qualcomm’s current top model but otherwise offers almost identical equipment. By using the Snapdragon 870, the last expansion phase of the Snapdragon 865 before the Snapdragon 888 came on the market, Poco can lower the starting price to 399.90 euros. The Snapdragon 865 was introduced in late 2019, relaunched in Summer 2020 as a Plus model with a faster CPU and GPU, and finalized in early 2021 as the Snapdragon 870 with an even faster Prime core.
Reduced by 50 euros at the start
Poco offers the F4 in two configurations: 6GB/128GB for €399.90 and 8GB/256GB for €449.90. The manufacturer will be available from June 27 at 1 p.m. in the colors Night Black, Moonlight Silver, and Nebula Green on the Poco website. The F4 is available from the manufacturer and on Amazon until 2 July at 1:00 PM at a discounted price of 349.90 and 399.90 euros respectively.
The 64-megapixel camera gets OIS
Compared to the Poco F4 GT, the rest of the equipment is practically identical. The 120 Hz fast AMOLED display uses a different cover glass and the cameras are configured differently. For the F4, Poco has given the primary camera an Optical Image Stabilizer (OIS) and a different aperture (f/1.8 instead of f/1.9). In addition, the battery with 4,500 mAh is slightly smaller and can be charged more slowly with 67 instead of 120 watts. In return, the F4 is the thinnest smartphone (7.7 mm) in the Poco family to date, the manufacturer explains.
Poco X4 GT Offers Bigger Battery
If you are not afraid of a little more depth, you may prefer the X4 GT presented next to the F4, which measures 8.87 mm in this dimension and has a 5,080 mAh battery, which can also be charged with 67 watts. Greater distinguishing features are found in the display and processor. The X4 GT comes with an IPS LCD instead of an AMOLED screen but retains 120 Hz and HDR (Dolby Vision) support. However, Poco specifically advertises for the F4 up to 1300 cd/m², which the X4 GT should not reach.
MediaTek Dimensity 8100 uses newer Arm cores
The MediaTek Dimensity 8100 may be preferable to the Snapdragon 870 because Cortex-A78 instead of A77 cores are already used and the SoC is manufactured in TSMC N5 instead of N7P. However, the Arm Mali-G610 MC6 should struggle with Qualcomm’s Adreno 650 GPU. Poco combines the chip with 8 GB of RAM and 128 or 256 GB of UFS 3.1.
The Poco X4 GT will be available in Most of Europe from July 4 at 1:00 PM for 379.90 euros and 429.90 euros in the colors silver, black and blue. An early bird promotion is also planned for this model until 13:00 on 9 July with prices of 299.90 euros and 349.90 euros. ComputerBase has received information about this item from Poco under NDA. The only specification was the earliest possible publication date.
