POCO F4 GT is a rebranded version of the Redmi K50 Gaming Edition. F3 GT was a hit last year. It offered a great gaming experience while maintaining the ingredients of a normal phone. Phones like the ROG series by Asus are catered toward the gaming audience.
However, their looks and hand-feel are very polarizing. F3 GT had very subtle but useful features that made it a gaming device for the masses. Finally, the POCO F4 GT has been launched in Pakistan and is available for pre-orders.
POCO F4 GT Specifications
The F4 GT features a 6.67″ OLED display protected by Gorilla Glass Victus. Moreover, the display has a 120Hz refresh rate. The device weighs 210g and is 8.5mm thick. POCO F4 GT features the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen1 paired with UFS 3.1 storage and LPDDR5 RAM. Furthermore, the device packs a 4700 mAh battery with 120W fast charging support.
The device features magnetic pop-up gaming triggers like last year’s iteration. Moreover, the POCO F4 GT also has liquid cooling technology 3.0. Considering the reviews about the 8Gen1 being hot, this is a much-needed step for a gaming device. It will help users game for longer periods without facing heating and throttling issues.
The camera system includes three sensors at the back. A 64MP main IMX686 is accompanied by 8MP ultra-wide and 2MP macro sensors. There is no optical image stabilization. There are no surprises here in this regard. As it is a gaming device and cameras aren’t the main focus. Moreover, the selfie shooter at the front is a 20MP IMX596 sensor. F4 GT features a CyberEngine X-axis haptic motor for tight vibrations. Lastly, the device also has WiFi 6 support, quad-speakers, and Dolby Atmos support.
The specifications are great and overall the F4 GT is a great gaming device. However, the pricing is one of the most vital factors while buying a device. The F4 GT starts at Rs. 144,999 for the 12GB/256GB variant. Although, the price is not that aggressive but with the increasing dollar rates, we weren’t expecting much. Let us know what you think about the price. Will you buy this over a non-gaming centric device like the S21 FE or any other similar device by paying up the premium?
