The POCO F4 is externally a Redmi K40S and has the same display as the POCO F3
As we mentioned at the beginning, Xiaomi decided not to risk too much with the new POCO F4. Technically, it is very similar to POCO F3with some minor changes that we will talk about later.
Proof of this is that both phones use the same screen: a 6.67-inch AMOLED panel with Full HD+ resolution, 120Hz refresh rate, HDR10+ and Dolby Vision compatibility. Be careful, it’s the same panel, but that doesn’t stop it from being very good.
Meanwhile, the design is one of those few things that change in the POCO F4, even if it is not something brand new. The design is identical to the Redmi K40S Presented in China, with a slightly strange camera module: the exterior is rectangular, the space where the sensors go is circular, but the distribution of the three rear cameras is triangular. Curious, but not bad. From the rest, the back has a completely flat design in three colors: gray, green and black.
The main camera of the POCO F4 goes up to 64 MP and adds OIS, the rest of the internal hardware does not change
One of the main changes of the POCO F4 compared to its predecessor is in its main camera, which goes from 48 MP to 64 MP with f / 1.79. Also, this it is the first POCO on the market with OISan excellent addition that helps stabilize images when there is a lot of movement.
However, the other two rear cameras of POCO F4 are a step backwards: the ultra wide angle (UGA) is still 8 MP as in the POCO F3, but the latter was UGA + macro; Besides, the POCO F4 has a simple 2 MP macro sensor, while the F3 had a 5 MP one.
Moving on to other sections, the POCO F4 maintains the Snapdragon 870 from last year, a chip that scores on the 715,000 and AnTuTu and has fantastic efficiency. It is not a bad choice and it helps keep the price down, but it is very difficult to justify that the POCO X4 GT has a MediaTek Dimensity 8100 (much more powerful) being a mid-range mobile. Regarding RAM and storage, the POCO F4 maintains the configurations of last year: 6GB + 128GB and 8GB + 256GBin LPDDR5 and UFS 3.1 format.
The battery capacity drops slightly to 4500 mAh, but fast charging doubles its power up to 67W. According to Xiaomi, the POCO F4 goes from 0% to 100% charge in just 38 minutes.
