If you thought that Xiaomi no longer had smartphones to launch before the summer, you were kidding yourself. The brand is still active as always, and it’s a pity for those who get lost in the manufacturer’s dense catalog. Here are two new devices announced for France: the Poco F4 and the Poco X4 GT.

Recall that the Poco F4 and the X4 GT had already been the subject of a big leak and therefore no longer had many secrets. Either way, the official announcement now helps corroborate what was known about them.

Xiaomi Poco F4: the protagonist of the summer

Let’s start with the one that is most highlighted, the Xiaomi Poco F4. This is aimed a little more at the general public than the recent Poco F4 GT, which is very game-oriented with its triggers. Here, the Poco F4 is less off the beaten track with a more classic format. However, it remains faithful to the DNA of this product line, namely: a “power plant»At an affordable price.

It must be said that it incorporates a Snapdragon 870 and benefits from “the highest frequency range for a Poco smartphone, at 3.2 GHzAdd to that a vapor chamber to prevent overheating, LPDDR5 RAM and UFS 3.1 memory.

For the rest, you have to contend with a fairly classic look: perforated screen with a centered bubble, flat edges and a fairly imposing rectangular photo module in the back in the upper left corner.
