What you need to know

  • POCO launched its newest gaming phone, the POCO F4 GT.
  • The phone features a 120Hz display, 120W fast charging, and is powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset.
  • The new POCO Watch and POCO Buds Pro Genshin Impact Edition were also launched.

This week, POCO introduces the latest edition to its gaming smartphone lineup, the POCO F4 GT, which offers some impressive specs and a pretty decent price point.

The new phone features a flashy design that’s not uncommon for the best gaming phones. However, part of that flashiness comes in the form of subtle RGB lighting on the camera hump as well as a lightning bolt-shaped flash unit.

The lightning bolt is quite a statement since the phone offers plenty of speedy specs. That includes a smooth 120Hz FHD+ AMOLED display with Dolby Vision HDR and a 480Hz touch sampling rate. The 4,700mAh battery isn’t much to run home about, especially since it’s smaller than the battery found in the POCO F3 GT, but the faster 120W charging will get you from 2% to 100% in just 17 minutes. POCO also includes an L-shaped charger so that it doesn’t get in the way while you’re gaming.

Speaking of gaming, the phone has two magnetic pop-up triggers that have been tested with more than 100 games from the Play Store. You can also assign various shortcuts for these triggers when you’re not gaming, which should come in handy in regular use.

The phone is powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset, and the phone sports LiquidCool Technology 3.0 to help relieve any worries about overheating. The phone comes in two configurations — 8GB/128GB or 12GB/256GB and comes in three colorways — Stealth Black, Knight Silver, and Cyber Yellow.
