Poco M4 Pro arrived earlier this year with a 6.43” AMOLED 90Hz panel and an Helio G96 SoC under the hood. The device sports a triple rear camera at the back. It uses a 64MP OmniVision OV64b40 primary, 8MP Sony IMX355, and a 2MP macro shooter whereas the front uses a Sony IMX471 16MP shooter. There’s 33W fast charging tech onboard with a 5,000mAh battery under the hood.

It goes without saying, the built-in (or pre-installed) camera app does capture average shots which is something Xiaomi or POCO can improve, however, they don’t. In fact, the smartphone maker pushes slightly incremental updates on the camera app giving a slight improvement, however, it pretty much isn’t anything you can flaunt.
