The Poco X4 5G smartphone has received the NBTC certification, hinting at its imminent launch and confirming its moniker. Poco is still prepping launch its first smartphone this year. However, it looks like the popular brand will be kicking off the new year with a bang by launching its latest X-series smartphone dubbed the Poco X4 5G. Moreover, Poco is reportedly gearing up to bring the Poco X4 5G into the Asian, as well as the global markets.
To recall, the Poco X4 5G smartphone bagged Malaysia’s SIRIM certification carrying model number 2201116PG in January. Since then, the rumor mill has been churning out speculations surrounding the X4 lineup’s launch date, specs, and other details. Aside from that, the Poco X4 and the Poco X4 Pro have already passed through multiple certification websites to date. Now, the same Poco phone that grabbed the SIRIM certification last month, has appeared on the NBTC website. As expected, the listing has shed more light on the phone’s key details.

Taking to Twitter earlier today, noted leaker Abhishek Yadav shared a screenshot of the phone’s NBTC listing that divulges some details about the upcoming handset.
