The Poco X4 series is coming and based on the latest leak, it seems there are a total of four models using the X4 badge; two of which are heading to India. One of them is the bog-standard Poco X4, which is expected to be the successor to the Poco X3 from 2020. The second model is the successor to the Poco X3 Pro, expected to be called the Poco X4 Pro.

Tipster Mukul Sharma reports via 91Mobiles about these four new Poco X series models. The leak does not reveal any specifications and feature related to these phones. However, it is now known that the Poco X4 is launching the first quarter of 2022, i.e., before March 2022.

Poco X4 series launching early 2022

On the other hand, the Poco X4 Pro does not have a launch date yet; it could launch sometime later in the year. Similar to the Poco X3 generation, the Poco X4 will have a non-NFC variant heading for India while the global variants will get NFC. Historically, the NFC variants are technically inferior to the non-NFC variant, hence it remains to be seen how Poco goes about with the 2022 models.

There is also a Poco X4 GT happening for the global markets only. It is said to be similar to the Poco X3 GT from this year. The Poco X3 GT was itself based on the Redmi Note 10 Pro+ from China; does that mean the Poco X4 GT will be based on the Redmi Note 11 Pro+ from China?

The Poco X3 itself was loosely based on the Redmi Note series from China and with the new version, we do not expect much differences. Given that it will be 2022 when these launch, the Poco X4 could make the jump to 5G chips and could rely on MediaTek Dimensity chip.

It remains to be seen how the Poco X4 Pro carries inside. For the Poco X3 Pro, the Snapdragon 860 chip was used, which is currently the most powerful 4G chipset. Qualcomm now hasn't launched any high performance 4G chip this time, which could mean a step up to 5G for the Pro variant.A Snapdragon 870 chip on duty, Poco?
