Poco F4 5G Expected Price in India
The price in India for Poco F4 5G is anybody’s guess for now. Looking at the past launches and the price segment in which Poco has been pushing its smartphones aggressively, it is not rocket science that Poco F4 5G will once again be targeting the sub-Rs 30,000, possibly competing against the likes of the Realme X series or even the Xiaomi 11 series.
As per a report by India Today Tech, the smartphone is tipped to cost under Rs 30,000 in the country. It might fall under the same price segment as Poco F3 GT, which was launched at Rs 28,999 and went up to Rs 31,999 based on different variants.
Poco F4 5G Expected Sale Date
Poco has not yet revealed anything about the date when the device will be going on sale in India or in different countries. The official website and the e-commerce site don’t say anything more than just ‘coming soon’. We, however, expect the Poco F4 5G to go on sale after a week with pre-orders starting from tomorrow right after the event.
Poco F4 5G Expected Specifications and Features
Since Povo F4 5G will be debuting globally on June 23, not a lot is out in terms of specifications. While some of the specifications were confirmed recently by the company as a part of the teaser, some came from tipsters online, giving us a fair idea of what to expect. Here are some of the key features to get excited about.
Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 SoC
This was recently confirmed by Poco itself. The Poco F4 5G will run on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 SoC. The 7nm octa-core chipset is not new since it was revealed in January last year. Based on the capability of the processor, one can expect 5G support, Wi-Fi 6, Adreno 650 GPU and CPU clock speed going up to 3.2GHz. To keep things cool, Poco F4 5G will feature the Liquidcool 2.0 tech, which is a cooling system with a 3112 mm sq. vapour chamber and a 7-layer graphite sheet.
Up to 12GB LPDDR5 Memory
Since the Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 SoC supports LPDDR5 RAM, Poco is taking advantage of it and will offer the F4 5G in variants that will feature up to 12GB RAM. This will be clubbed alongside 256GB storage with UFS 3.1 tech. This essentially means faster loading of videos and other content along with faster loading times of game titles.
120Hz AMOLED Display
The Poco F4 5G is expected to feature a 6.67-inch 4th-gen E4 Super AMOLED display panel with a 120Hz refresh rate and 260Hz touch sampling rate. There’s also MEMC Tech support and a small punch hole camera cutout at the top-centre position for the selfie camera. You also get Dolby Vision support along with a 100 per cent DCI-P3 colour gamut.
64MP Pro-grade OIS Rear Camera
This is also one of the highlights of the Poco F4 5G. The smartphone is confirmed to sport a 64MP Pro-grade rear camera with support for Optical Image Stabilisation. The firm says it will also include features like Portrait Mode, Movie frame mode and HDR mode. There will be two more sensors at the back.
Other Expected Specifications and Features
Some other specifications of Poco F4 5G have also been revealed by the company. The smartphone will come in two colour variants – Blue and Black, although the official names are not out yet. The firm has also confirmed the inclusion of a 4500mAh battery with 67W Turbo Charging support. It can charge the phone up to 50% in 11 minutes. Along with Dolby Vision and AMOLED screen as mentioned above, Poco is also offering Dolby Atmos audio support.
