POCO M4 Pro 5G comes to Germany
POCO today announced the launch of its mid-range POCO M4 Pro 5G smartphone. The device relies on a powerful Mediatek Dimensity 810 chipset. The octa-core processor was manufactured in a 6nm process and is inherently low-power. The maximum clock rate is 2.4 GHz for the Cortex A76 cores. Six efficient ARM Cortex A55 cores with 2.0 GHz and a modern ARM Mali-G57 MC2 CPU with 1068MHz complete the overall package.
Depending on the model, the SoC is supported by either 4 or 6 GB of working memory. In addition, there is 64 GB or 128 GB of flash memory that can be expanded via microSD card. 5G support including dual-5G standby as well as UFS 2.2 technology for faster sequential write speeds and multitasking options are also offered.
Long battery life and 90 Hz display
The POCO M4 Pro 5G features a 5,000 mAh battery, which in combination with the power-saving SoC should ensure an especially long battery life. Thanks to the 33W Pro Fast Charging technology, the smartphone is fully charged in just 59 minutes. Ten minutes of charging time is supposed to be enough for two hours of uninterrupted video playback.
With a touch sampling rate of 240Hz and a 90Hz DynamicSwitch Dot Display, this phone not only shines with smooth usability. The large color space, which supports DCI-P3, offers FHD+ resolution.
In addition, the POCO M4 Pro 5G offers a dynamic refresh rate that automatically adjusts to the entertainment mode, thus extending battery life. Videos are played back at 60 frames per second, movies at 25 frames per second, while games run at either 60 frames per second or 90 fps.
Combining the display with two speakers, POCO M4 Pro 5G turns into a portable cinema that fits in any pocket. This makes the smartphone perfect for gamers, as the X-axis linear motor provides a haptic, touch-like response that vibrates as feedback to actions in the game.
At the same time, the smartphone weighs only 195 grams and offers an 8.75 mm thin bezel, as well as a newly designed fingerprint sensor on the side. Offered will choose the POCO M4 Pro 5G in three stylish colors: matte POCO Yellow, Power Black or Cool Blue.
