Poco F4 GT with Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 appears online
According to recent reports, the Poco F4 GT now has FCC certification and the model number is 21121210G. Of course, with this certification in the bag, we already know that this device will launch soon. Recent speculations claim that since the previous generation, the Poco F3 GT corresponds to the Redmi K40 e-sports version, the Poco F4 GT should be the Redmi K50 e-sports version which was released today.
This means that the Poco F4 GT has the same hardware configuration as the Redmi K50 e-sports version. Specifically, it includes a 6.67-inch OLED flexible straight screen, a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC as well as a 64MP main camera. This smartphone will also come with a 4700 mAh battery, and 120W fast charging.
From the configuration point of view, the Poco F4 GT is the first Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 flagship mobile phone in the Xiaomi series with a straight screen. The previously Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 models such as Xiaomi 12 and Xiaomi 12 Pro all use curved screen solutions. In addition, the 120W fast charge of the Poco F4 GT is also comparable to the Xiaomi 12 Pro. However, the difference is that the Poco F4 GT is a dual-cell solution, while the Xiaomi 12 Pro is a single-cell solution.
