The "POCO M4 Pro" appears on Geekbench with a MediaTek processor and more RAM than previously thought

The M4 Pro is now rumored as the next phone to launch from the Xiaomi brand POCO. This event is looking more and more likely in the face of new Geekbench listings for a device with a model number thought to conform to the device. They point to a mid-range MediaTek Dimensity processor and Android 11 for the upcoming smartphone.

The next POCO phone is thought to be called the M4 Pro - or possibly M4 Pro 5G, as a leak direct from the FCC may confirm it supports this connectivity. Now, a new Geekbench 5 leak might hint at the SoC that will confer this spec.

A handful of new listings on this database are for the "Xiaomi 21091116AC", a model number very similar to that associated with a possibly global M4 Pro in an earlier tip. They all concur that the device runs on a platform called the MediaTek MT6833P.

This identifier is vaguely familiar as it closely resembles that for the Dimensity 700 processor (or MT6833). Therefore, it is possible the M4 Pro might disappoint slightly by launching as a 2021 phone with this older chipset. However, it is also possible that the new 'P' in the model number denotes a new variant: the 810, perhaps.

This might dovetail nicely with rumors that the POCO M4 Pro will emerge as a rebranded Redmi Note 11 for markets outside China. Should this be the case, it might explain why Geekbench seems to think it has 8GB of RAM, whereas leaked labelling suggests the Xiaomi 21091116AG will have only 4 to 6GB.

Accordingly, it may be that this newly-uncovered 21091116AC is a China-only SKU and is, thus, the Note 11, whereas the M4 Pro targets different price-tiers with more affordable-class specs. Some of these possibilities might be confirmed or denied as early as tomorrow (October 28, 2021).

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
