Poco M4 5G smartphone has been launched in India with very good specs and reasonable price. Poco has dubbed its latest 5G-ready phone for the Indian market as the Poco M4 5G. It is the smaller brother of the more powerful Poco M4 Pro 4G, and the M4 Pro 5G smartphone. To recall, the Poco M4 Pro 4G and M4 Pro 5G went official in the country earlier this year. Notably, the vanilla Poco M4 5G model will set you back under INR 15,000 in India.
There is word on the street that the M4 5G is actually a rebranded version of the Redmi Note 11E. Hence, it is not surprising that the new Poco phone takes inspiration from the Note 11e in terms of design. Other than that, the M4 5G appears to boast the same specs as the Redmi Note 11E. Firstly, the handset sports a waterdrop notch to accommodate the selfie camera. There is a fingerprint sensor in the side edge. For optics, the phone comes with two rear-mounted cameras. Also, there is 5G and POCO branding on the rear panel, which has a unique design.
