More and more mobile games are coming out every day, and these new games demand higher specs to have a decent gaming experience. Older phones couldn’t catch up, and buying expensive ones will undoubtedly break the bank.
In that case, POCO finally launches a budget-friendly phone, and the specs here are more than enough to play these latest games in the highest settings possible – introducing the POCO M4 Pro. It’s the first M-series smartphone with an AMOLED display with a combination of 90Hz refresh rate for a better viewing experience. With an 8-Core Helio G96 Processor up to 8GB of RAM and 256GB storage, the battery is also beefed up to 5,000 mAh to provide the power needed. It has all the essentials and offers impressive specs for this low-cost budget phone.
Play Games in 90Hz Refresh Rate and AMOLED Display
The more resolution you have, the more details and actions you can get to immerse yourself into, it could be MOBA, FPS, or in different game genres. That is why having a great display like AMOLED is what you should consider when getting a brand-new phone. Unlike the traditional LCD that uses a backlight, AMOLED powered each pixel separately, making the display more vivid, with increased brightness, deep blacks, and high contrast ratio. The screen resolution is packed with 1080 x 2400 with 409 PPI density. It’s like a 1080 computer monitor screen shrinks down to a phone-size display.
If you think phones with AMOLED displays are too expensive, POCO breaks this trend, and adds them to their budget-friendly M-series – positioning it as an entertainment mid-range smartphone good for gaming.
Not only that, but POCO M4 Pro 4G also features the 90Hz screen refresh rate, which was introduced in the previous generation. It allows for smoother scrolling on your social media newsfeed, swiping your apps on the homepage, and better animation when playing your favorite video games. Thus, improving the overall experience of a budget-friendly phone.
A low-cost phone with 8-Core Processor
In order to match the impressive screen AMOLED display, it is paired with MediaTek Helio G96 4G processor wherein it has two powerful Arm Cortex-A76 processors that can be clocked at 2.06Ghz in its 8-core CPU. The GPU that powers the graphics performance is equipped with Arm Mali-G57.
The base model is upgraded to 6GB Memory RAM and 128GB Storage for multi-tasking. You can also max it out up to 8GB RAM and 256GB ROM option.
If you need more storage, POCO also allows you to extend the storage with the micro SD slot that can be expanded up to 1TB, storing more movies, pictures, or installing more games.
Beefy Battery for Beefy round of gameplay
A low-cost smartphone that can last long hours of gaming, POCO maintains its signature 5,000 mAh beefy battery that allows you to use your phone for over two days on moderate usage. While playing video games, you will enjoy more Mobile Legends Bang Bang rounds without worrying about being disconnected.
One of the most significant selling points of the M4 Pro is probably the fast charging capability. POCO M4 Pro 4G is powered with 33W Pro fast charging that combines with more efficient technology called MMT (Middle Middle Tab) that allows you to charge your phone in roughly 1 hour fully.
Look and Feel with Liquid Cooling technology
Apart from the long-lasting battery, POCO has upgraded the M4 design, which is the thinness and weightlessness possible that every consumer is looking for at the same time its convenience and practicality for everyday use. They have achieved a thinness of 8.09, which is the thinnest M-series smartphone to date. At the same time, 179.5 grams is the lightest smartphone in the whole POCO brand.
The M4 Pro has three color variants from the traditional M-series; POCO Yellow, Power Black, and Cool Blue.
Furthermore, smartphones usually heat up while playing a highly demanding game, feeling uncomfortable in the middle of a match. Even in this light and thin design, POCO was able to add a LiquidCool Technology 1.0 to make sure your phone won’t overheat and keep the phone cool which optimizes the performance and better gaming experience.
64MP Triple Camera
With all the best hardware they added on POCO M4 Pro 4G, they do not forget to update the camera. It is also the first time their M-series added an even higher megapixel camera module. From 48MP and 50MP, now a brand-new 64MP wherein you can take a photo in a top-notch quality on a budget-friendly phone. As well as 8 MP for ultrawide and 2MP for macro shots.
