Xiaomi Poco F4 Features, price and Specifications

Xiaomi’s Poco F3 has struck a great balance between features and price above all, thanks to its performance and camera quality. Now, rumors are circulating that the Chinese company is preparing a successor.

That’s probably all we know so far about the Xiaomi Poco F4 and Redmi K50 it’s based on.

When will Xiaomi Poco F4 be released?

At the time of this writing, we don’t have a confirmed release date, but we’ve seen some reports suggesting an approximate time frame for F4’s arrival.

Xiaomi has started launching the Redmi K50 series in China, starting with the K50 Gaming Edition. Why is this important? Well, the Redmi K40 has been launched worldwide as the Poco F3.

As such, with the proliferation of K50 phones, it’s unlikely that the Poco F4 will lag far behind mainland Europe, the UK, India and elsewhere. Since the Poco F3 was announced in March 2021 and launched in mid-April, this will roughly be in line with its predecessor’s launch strategy.

It should be noted that in February the Poco X4 Pro introduced 5G and the M4 Pro, apparently locating the next F4 release.

How Much Will The Xiaomi Poco F4 Cost?

There is no strong talk about the potential price of the Poco F4, are we looking at previous models as a rough guide to European prices:

If we take the high-end 8GB RAM models with 256GB memory as our starting point, you’ll pay between 350 and 450 for your Poco F4 in your local currency. Of course, the current global silicon shortage is driving prices up, as are supply chain disruptions caused by the pandemic. So we may see a slightly higher price when the Poco F4 actually arrives.

What will be the features of the Xiaomi Poco F4?

Like all the details about the Poco F4, nothing is coming directly from Xiaomi at the moment. A few phones related to the Poco F4 series are registered with the Russian Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC), but the listings do not include any technical specifications or design details.

Another certification listing, specifically for the F4 GT, reveals a 4560mAh battery and the phone will run with MIUI 13, though it doesn’t actually say much more. Meanwhile, the FCC listings for the F4 and F4 Pro offer 4400mAh batteries and give us their model numbers – 22021211RG and 22021211G – but a little more.

The phone, which is believed to be an ordinary Poco F4 on Geekbench, also appeared with a Snapdragon 870 chip running Android 12 and 8 GB of RAM.

As mentioned earlier, there have been several reports linking the F4 series to the Redmi K50 series and we know more about these phones.

There are three models in the K50 lineup so far: K50, K50 Gaming Edition and K50 Pro – but we’ve also heard rumors about the K50 Pro+.

We hope to see some of these reworked as Poco F4 variants, but we’re not sure which ones – and it’s unlikely that all four will make it into Pocos.

Expected to resemble the F4 GT, the K50 Gaming Edition was the first model to go on sale in China. It includes the flagship Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chip and 120W fast charging for the 4700mAh battery – this would be the same “rating” capacity of the 4560mAh cell seen in the F4 GT certification above.

The game also features a 6.67-inch AMOLED display with FHD+ resolution, 120Hz refresh rate and 480Hz touch selective rate protected by Corning Gorilla Glass Victus. It has a 20Mp Sony IMX596 front camera, while at the back it has a 64Mp Sony IMX686 main, 8Mp ultra-wide and 2Mp telemachine.

At the same time, the K50 Pro uses the MediaTek Dimensity 9000 and the K50 has a newer but less powerful Dimensity 8100. Both have 6.7-inch 120Hz AMOLED displays covered with Gorilla Glass Victus. The Pro has a 108Mp main camera, 5000mAh battery and 120W fast charging, while the regular K50 offers 48Mp main camera, 5500mAh battery and 67W charging.

Complicating things for the F4, the Geekbench listing includes the Snapdragon 870, which is not found in any of the Redmi K50 phones. On the other hand, it is used in the Redmi K40S, which despite its name was also released this spring, which forces some to speculate that this phone will be the basis for the usual Poco F4.

If so, fans can expect a 120Hz AMOLED display, 8Mp ultra-wide-angle 48Mp main rear camera, and a 67W wired charger for the 4500mAh battery.

Here’s how the Poco F3 is equipped to remind you what F4 will replace and give you an idea of what all the features might look like:
