Xiaomi’s POCO M4 Pro 5G is the latest in the company’s line of low-cost performance phones. On November 9, it will be available worldwide. However, the trailers only show the release date and do not include any specifications or previews. The rumour mill, on the other hand, provides us with a sneak preview of this upcoming phone in the form of leaked press images.
The leak comes from thePixel, a Vietnam-based publication. According to the alleged press images, the POCO M4 Pro 5G is a rebranded Redmi Note 11, which was released in China last month. It’s very on-brand for POCO, which was created to repackage Xiaomi phones for an international audience in the first place.
Except for the thick accent that stretches across its width, the M4 Pro 5G is virtually indistinguishable from the Redmi Note 11. POCO’s bold branding is imprinted on this accent, continuing the odd design trend started by the previous-generation POCO M3. The camera housing also features a contrasting chrome lining, which is carried over from the Redmi Note 11.
The new Xiaomi mobile’s shell, seen here in graphite, curves along the edges and houses a power button and fingerprint sensor duo. When you flip the POCO M4 Pro 5G over, you’ll notice a tiny hole in the center of the display. It’s held in place by a pair of thin bezels.
We know what to expect because the M4 Pro 5G is a rebranded Redmi Note 11. The screen would be a 6.6″ IPS LCD with a 1080P resolution and a refresh rate of 90Hz. A 16MP front camera should be hidden behind its O-hole. The backup camera system would include 50MP wide and 8MP ultra-wide cameras.
Everything will be powered by the MediaTek Dimensity 810, a mid-range 5G chip from the Taiwanese manufacturer. The battery has a capacity of 5000 mAh and charges at an optimal 33W of power. The POCO M4 Pro 5G runs MIUI 12.5, which is based on Android 11.
