The Poco X3 Pro was expected to succeed the Poco F1, a favorite of gamers and fans alike. With its Snapdragon 800-series SoC, it did demonstrate its value in games and overall performance, but it wasn’t a standout gadget. The new Poco X4 Pro is the successor to the X3 Pro, although Poco gave it a 600-series 5G SoC rather than a SoC that was as least as powerful as its predecessor.
Poco X4 Pro 5G design
There are three color options for the Poco X4 Pro 5G: Poco Yellow, Laser Blue, and Laser Black. Poco’s design decisions are obviously intended to appeal to a younger audience. The glass rear panel of the X4 Pro 5G is striking and gives the device a premium appearance.
I wouldn’t suggest the Poco X4 Pro to folks who like one-handed use because it is a tall, weighty phone. Due to the rectangular slab utilized for the camera module, which almost fills the whole width of the phone, it weighs 205g and is quite top-heavy.
Poco X4 Pro 5G pricing in India
In April of this year, the Poco X4 Pro was on sale for a starting price of Rs. 18,999.

Performance and battery life
In the single-core and multi-core tests on Geekbench, It received results of 686 and 1,949, respectively. The X4 Pro 5G delivered 79 frames per second and 16 frames per second in the GFXBench T-Rex and Car Chase test suites, respectively, while PCMark’s Work 3.0 test yielded a score of 10,509 points.
Poco X4 Pro 5G cameras
It has three back cameras, the primary of which is a 64-megapixel Samsung ISOCELL GW3 sensor with an f/1.8 aperture. Additionally, it has a 2-megapixel macro camera and an 8-megapixel ultra-wide camera with an f/2.2 aperture. A 16-megapixel selfie camera with an f/2.45 aperture is located on the front. With the exception of the primary camera, which features a 108-megapixel sensor, all cameras are comparable to those of the Redmi Note 11 Pro+.
The camera’s user interface is quite simple, with toggles for AI and HDR and a number of filters. Additional photography options including 64M, Panorama, Long Exposure, and others are available under the “More” menu. Oddly, the Macro camera toggle is located in another menu.
