POCO has revealed the F4, a sideways step from the POCO F3. With a Snapdragon 870 chipset and a 120 Hz AMOLED display, the POCO F4 shares many of its key components with its predecessor. However, POCO has equipped this year's model with a better primary camera, faster charging and Android 12. The POCO F4 will be orderable from June 27 and carries a minimum MSRP of €399.90.

POCO has launched the F4, a replacement for the POCO F3 that relies on the same chipset. Hence, the Snapdragon 870 powers the POCO F4, as does a 4,500 mAh battery that supports 67 W charging. While the POCO F4 can charge at a higher wattage than its predecessor, it misses out on wireless charging support. Additionally, the POCO F4 has LPDDR5 RAM and UFS 3.1 flash storage, both modern standards that the POCO F3 also featured.

Moreover, the POCO F4 retains it predecessor's 6.67-inch AMOLED display. As such, the POCO F4 offers a 120 Hz refresh rate, a 1080p native resolution and 1,300 nits of peak brightness. Incidentally, POCO protects the F4's display with Corning Gorilla Glass 5. Separately, the POCO F4 re-uses its predecessors, 8 MP ultra-wide-angle, 2 MP macro and 20 MP front-facing cameras. However, POCO has equipped a 64 MP primary camera with OIS. In comparison, the POCO F3 has a 48 MP primary camera that lacks OIS.

The POCO F4 will be orderable in Europe from June 27 in Nebula Green, Night Black and Moonlight Silver, starting with 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage. Alternatively, the company will sell an 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage option for a €50 surcharge. The POCO F4 Pro will be available from €349.90 between June 27 and July 2 through POCO and third-party retailers like Amazon. Specifically, POCO F4 prices are as follows:

  • 6 GB of RAM/128 GB of storage - €349.90 (Early Bird)/€399.90 (MSRP)
  • 8 GB of RAM/256 of storage - €399.90 (Early Bird)/€449.90 (MSRP)
