The Poco M4 5G smartphone has been launched in India with sufficiently good specs and a reasonable price tag. Poco has unveiled its latest 5G-ready phone dubbed the Poco M4 5G for the Indian market. It is the younger sibling of the more powerful Poco M4 Pro 4G, and the M4 Pro 5G smartphones. To recall, the Poco M4 Pro 4G and the M4 Pro 5G went official in the country earlier this year. Notably, the vanilla Poco M4 5G model will set you back to less than INR 15,000 in India.
The word on the street is that the M4 5G is actually a rebranded version of the Redmi Note 11E. So, it is barely surprising that the new Poco phone draws inspiration from the Note 11E in terms of design. Aside from this, the M4 5G appears to boast the same specs as the Redmi Note 11E. First off, the handset sports a waterdrop notch to accommodate the selfie camera. The side edge houses a fingerprint sensor. For optics, the phone comes with two rear-mounted cameras. Also, there’s a 5G and POCO branding on the rear panel, which has a unique textured finish.
