When it arrived, in March 2021, Poco X3 Pro immediately stood out as one of the most interesting devices in the medium-low range thanks to an excellent relationship between performance and price, and contributed to the rise of the brand. And now it’s time for its heir, Poco X4 Pro 5G, officially announced during the event that the company held today at the Mobile World Congress 2022 in Barcelona.
Poco X4 Pro, at first glance, looks much better than its predecessor. If there was one aspect where the Poco X3 Pro didn’t shine, in fact, that was the design. Okay, the brand name on the back is still there, and clearly visible, but at least it does not cover a good part of the back cover, and is isolated in the imposing black photographic block, the true protagonist of the product’s aesthetics, the element that most determines its personality. And if the design immediately gives a greater impression of modernity, it is also thanks to the flat edges, in the iPhone 12 and iPhone 13 style.
In addition to the design, the other major improvement over the previous generation is the screen. If there was an LCD on the X3 Pro, here is a 6.67-inch AMOLED FHD + (2400×1080) panel with DCI-P3 support, 120Hz refresh rate and 360Hz touch sampling rate.

Under the body, there is Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 695 5G SoC flanked by 6 or 8 GB of LPDDR4X RAM (expandable via Dynamic Ram Expansion Technology to 8 and 11 GB respectively) and 128 or 256 GB of internal UFS 2.2 storage. The battery has a capacity of 5,000 mAh and supports fast charging at 67W which allows you to go from 0 to 70% in 41 minutes.
The rear camera consists of a 108 MP main sensor, an 8 MP ultra-wide sensor; and finally a 2 MP macro sensor, while the selfie-cam hosted by a hole in the display is 16 MP.
In terms of audio, the Poco X4 Pro offers a stereo experience thanks to two speakers; and the 3.5mm jack for headphones is not missing. The connectivity package is complete with 5G; the possibility of using a second SIM (or alternatively a microSD to expand the internal memory). Finally, the fingerprint reader is located on the side of the device.
