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.

Review: The Teracube 2e is a more sustainable phone that you can afford

It just got easier to be green. If you know me or read my work here at AC, you know that I feel strongly about a few things when it comes to smartphones and consumer tech, and those things are not necessarily what some of my colleagues or others in the tech-sphere care about. You can have your 10x optical zoom cameras, folding phones, and 50W wireless charging devices all day, but I'm more interested in affordable to mid-range devices that last longer than you'd expect and which are at least trying to do environmental and social good. Sounds great, but it seems that it's harder to find this combination of features in a phone than the ultra-premium specced-out devices we typically talk about here on this website. That's why I was excited when I had the chance to write this Teracube 2e review. Teracube is a relatively new smartphone OEM based out of Redmond, WA, and founder Sharad Mittal's stated goal is to change the "disposable nature of the consumer ele

Google's new Guest Mode is like incognito mode for Google Assistant

Your interactions with Google Assistant will not be saved when Guest Mode is turned on. What you need to know Google Assistant is getting a new Guest Mode for privacy-conscious users. When it's turned on, the virtual assistant will not save any of its interactions with you. Turning it on and off is as simple as a single voice command. Google this week announced a new Guest Mode for its virtual assistant that's designed with privacy-conscious folks in mind. A simple "Hey Google, turn on Guest Mode" will ensure that none of your interactions with Google Assistant are collected by the company and nor will they be used to 'personalize your experience' — often an indirect way of referring to targeted ads. When it's on, the Assistant will play a special chime to let you know. Smart displays with Assistant will also show a guest icon on the screen. And you can always check for yourself by saying, "Hey Google, is Guest Mode on?" Even with G

Spotify Q1 beats on sales of $2B with monthly active users up 31% to 286M

The coronavirus may be decimating some corners of the economy, but the impact on the digital music, as evidenced by the world’s biggest music streaming company, appears to be minimal. Today Spotify reported its earnings for Q1 with revenues of €1.848 billion ($2 billion at today’s rates) and an inching into a positive net income of $1 million. Monthly active users (not total subscribers) now stand at 286 million, with paid (premium) users at 130 million and ad-supported monthly active users at 163 million. Ad-supported users are growing at a slightly higher rate at the moment, at 32% versus 31%, Spotify said. Spotify beat  analysts’ forecasts on both sales — they had on average been expecting revenues of $1.86 billion — and EPS, which had been forecast to be -$0.49 but came in at -$0.20 on a diluted basis and $0.00 undiluted. The numbers underscore the positive signals we’ve had from the wider industry. More generally, we have seen a huge boost in streaming media services — includ

Adobe is giving students and teachers free access to Creative Cloud

Your university's IT admin will need to make an application for access. What you need to know Adobe is temporarily making Creative Cloud free for teachers and students. The offer is aimed at enabling them to continue being productive as they work and study from home. Students cannot individually avail the promo, however, as the application for access needs to be made by a university's IT admin. As universities around the world shut their campuses and organizations ask their employees to work from home, many tech companies are making their products available to educational institutes free for use. Google and Microsoft have both made their large-scale communication and videoconferencing tools free for everyone, and now Adobe is temporarily giving free Creative Cloud access to students and teachers. The subscription, which usually costs $79.49 per month, will give affected students and teachers access to the entire range of Adobe's applications, such as Photoshop
