What you need to know

  • POCO has announced two new phones at MWC 2022.
  • The POCO X4 Pro 5G is a rebranded version of the Redmi Note 11 Pro 5G.
  • POCO M4 Pro, on the other hand, is based on the Redmi Note 11S.

Xiaomi's POCO sub-brand has expanded its smartphone portfolio with the launch of two new budget phones. Like most POCO devices, however, the new X4 Pro 5G and M4 Pro aren't actually all-new.

Besides the slightly different design, the POCO X4 Pro 5G is identical to the global Redmi Note 11 Pro 5G — one of Xiaomi's best budget Android phones. It sports a 6.67-inch FHD+ AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate, Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection, and a 360Hz touch sampling rate.

Powering the X4 Pro 5G is Qualcomm's 6nm Snapdragon 695 chipset, paired with up to 8GB of LPDDR4X RAM and 256GB of UFS 2.2 storage. The large camera bump on the back of the phone houses a triple-lens setup with a 108MP main sensor, an 8MP ultra-wide shooter, and a 2MP macro lens.

The phone packs a 5,000mAh battery, which POCO claims can deliver over 15 hours of video playback. There's support for 67W turbo charging as well, allowing the X4 Pro 5G to be charged from 0% to 100% in a little over 40 minutes. The POCO X4 Pro 5G also comes equipped with a Z-axis linear motor, an IR blaster, a side-mounted fingerprint sensor, and a 3.5mm headphone jack.

The POCO M4 Pro is largely identical to the recently launched Redmi Note 11S. The only major difference between the two is that the M4 Pro uses a 64MP main camera instead of the 108MP sensor in the Note 11S.

It sports a 6.43-inch FHD+ AMOLED display with a 90Hz refresh rate and a 16MP selfie camera housed within the centered hole-punch cutout. The phone is powered by MediaTek's Helio G96 chipset and features LiquidCool Technology 1.0 Plus to ensure it can perform smoothly even during long gaming sessions.

On the back of the POCO M4 Pro is a triple-camera setup featuring a 64MP main sensor, an 8MP ultra-wide lens, and a 2MP macro camera. Keeping the lights on is a large 5,000mAh battery with 33W "Pro fast charging."

The budget Android phone also comes with dual stereo speakers, NFC, an IR blaster, IP53 splash-proof protection, and a side-mounted fingerprint sensor. On the software front, both the X4 Pro 5G and M4 Pro run MIUI 13 for POCO, based on Android 11.

The POCO X4 Pro 5G will be available in Europe from March 2 for an "early bird" starting price of €269 for the 6GB/128GB version and €319 for the 8GB/256GB version. Like the X4 Pro 5G, POCO's M4 Pro is also set to go on sale in Europe from March 2. It will be available at an early bird price of just €199 for the 6GB/128GB version €249 for the 8GB/256GB version.

FCC approves broadband 'nutrition labels' to help you shop for internet

The FCC is pushing nutrition labels for internet providers. What you need to know The FCC has voted to move forward with new rules for ISPs to display nutrition labels. The proposed rulemaking would mandate ISPs to display relevant speed and pricing information to consumers. This should make it easier for consumers to make an informed decision on their broadband. The FCC voted unanimously on a plan that would allow consumers to make better decisions about their broadband internet. The proposal will require internet service providers (ISPs) - including many of the best wireless carriers in the U.S. — to display "nutrition labels" that display relevant service information for consumers at point-of-sale. This includes internet speeds, allowances, and clear information on rates. "If you walk into any grocery store and pull boxes of cereal from the shelves, you can easily compare calories and carbohydrates," FCC Chair Jessica Rosenworcel said in a statemen

Yandex spins out self-driving car unit from its Uber JV, invests $150M into newco

Self-driving cars are still many years away from becoming a ubiquitous reality, but today one of the bigger efforts to build and develop them is taking a significant step out as part of its strategy to be at the forefront for when they do. Yandex — the publicly-traded Russian tech giant that started as a search engine but has expanded into a number of other, related areas (similar to US counterpart Google) — today announced that it is spinning out its self-driving car unit from MLU BV — a ride-hailing and food delivery joint venture it operates in partnership with Uber. The move comes amid reports that Yandex and Uber were eyeing up an IPO for MLU  last year. At the time, the JV was estimated to be valued at around $7.7 billion. It’s not clear how those plans will have been impacted in recent months, with COVID-19 putting huge pressure on ride-hailing and food-delivery businesses globally, and IPOs generally down compared to a year ago. In that context, spinning out the unit could

Slack’s new integration deal with AWS could also be about tweaking Microsoft

Slack and Amazon announced a big integration late yesterday afternoon. As part of the deal, Slack will use Amazon Chime for its call feature, while reiterating its commitment to use AWS as its preferred cloud provider to run its infrastructure. At the same time, AWS has agreed to use Slack for internal communications. Make no mistake, this is a big deal as the SaaS communications tool increases its ties with AWS, but this agreement could also be about slighting Microsoft and its rival Teams product by making a deal with a cloud rival. In the past Slack CEO Stewart Butterfield has had choice words for Microsoft saying the Redmond technology giant sees his company as an “existential threat.” Whether that’s true or not — Teams is but one piece of a huge technology company — it’s impossible not to look at the deal in this context. Aligning more deeply with AWS sends a message to Microsoft, whose Azure infrastructure services compete with AWS. Butterfield didn’t say that of course
