Xiaomi Poco F4 GT
On April 26th a new generation of the Xiaomi Poco F-series is upon us, with the debut of the Poco F4 GT model. It returns to using a flagship chipset, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 while dialing up the charging speed.
That’s true of the phone’s design too, which holds true to the original Redmi phone’s gaming aesthetic
Xiaomi Poco F4 GT Features
The powerful chipset is reined in by the top-tier performance and is kept cool by LiquidCool Technology 3.0, with dual vapor chambers for cooling. We appreciate the stereo speakers and the fast charging, but we can’t but miss the microSD slot and the 3.5mm jack. The phone is available to buy in some countries now, though won’t reach UK stores until late May.
Poco has confirmed the price of the Poco F4 GT, which ships in two variants:
8GB + 128GB: €599
12GB + 256GB: €699
There is a 48MP primary, an 8MP ultrawide shooter, and a 5MP macro enhanced with autofocus.
Design of the Xiaomi Poco F4 GT
The phone’s display and rear are both encased in Gorilla Glass Victus, though do note that there’s no official IP rating for dust and water resistance. The side of the phone is bolstered by the inclusion of magnetic pop-up shoulder trigger buttons, though these can also be customized to serve as shortcuts for the camera, flashlight, or other apps when not gaming.
The display is a 6.67in, FHD+, 120Hz AMOLED with high frequency 1920Hz PWM dimming, HDR10+, and a typical brightness of 800 nits.
The F4 GT ships with Android 12, running Xiaomi’s MIUI 13 skin.
