Marketed in France in 2020, the Xiaomi Poco M3 was still waiting for its successor. Now it’s done with the Poco M4 5G, which benefits from an ultra-affordable launch price.
In 2020, the Xiaomi Poco M3 had hit hard thanks to the excess of autonomy. This entry-level phone had not been renewed since then. Finally, the Xiaomi Poco M4 Pro 4G and Xiaomi Poco M4 Pro 5G versions have been released, but the classic Xiaomi Poco M4 has not appeared yet.
It’s done, as we know from a press release sent to the newsroom. This generation seems to slightly sacrifice the criterion of autonomy in favor of 5G and the screen. In fact, the old 6000 mAh battery is satisfied this time with a 5000 mAh capacity, combined with a 90 Hz panel that should provide more fluidity of use.

All this as a whole should, logically, reduce autonomy -without weighing it down-, but also offer a more complete and balanced experience. The rest of the technical sheet clearly reflects the entry-level standards: LCD screen (6.58 inches, FHD +), protruding chin or even 18 W of charging power.
As for the photo, the Xiaomi Poco M4 should clearly lack versatility: in fact, it is limited to a 13-megapixel main sensor and a 2-megapixel depth sensor, added for portraits, while the algorithms can manage this shot very well. . Here, there is no ultra wide angle. At the front, you have to rely on a 5-megapixel sensor.
In terms of design, this model offers a blue, yellow or black polycarbonate (plastic) back, with a front camera housed in a drop of water. The fingerprint sensor sits below the power button, while a SIM drawer can accommodate two SIM cards equally. It also has a weight of 200 grams and a thickness of 8.9 mm. So he is a beautiful baby.

The performance of the phone is provided by the Mediatek Dimensity 700 5G chip, combined with 6 or 8 GB of RAM and 64 or 128 GB of storage. The software experience is finally based on MIUI 13 under Android 12.
As for prices, the Poco M4 5G will be available in France from August 22 at the respective prices of 199.90 and 219.90 euros on AliEpress, in versions of 4 + 64 GB and 6 + 128 GB, respectively. .
