To ensure an unrestricted experience, the Poco F4 GT packs LiquidCool Technology 3.0, which is one of the industry’s most sophisticated cooling systems. Even in intense gaming scenarios that tend to generate a huge amount of heat, the cooling solutions ensure both stability and peak performance.

120W HyperCharge

With the Poco F4 GT, you find the first smartphone from the manufacturer with a dual-cell battery design and support for 120W charging. The 4,700mAh battery allows for a 0-100 per cent full charge in only 17 minutes.

Poco has ensured that this charging speed is safe and does little to no damage to the battery on the smartphone. It uses MTW (Multiple Tab Winding) technology along with a dual-charge pump design to maximise charging efficiency when gaming. To further preserve battery health and life, Adaptive Charge minimises the amount of time the battery spends in the critical 80-100 per cent range overnight.

Magnetic pop-up triggers

To maximise its gaming capabilities, the Poco F4 GT features magnetic pop-up triggers. These transform the device into a gaming machine with the triggers offering a controller-like experience and apex-level precision. The pop-up triggers are designed with magnetic levitation technology and can handle 1.5 million presses with ease.

During gaming, the pop-up triggers showcase greatly stable, responsive and durable performance. In fact, they act as a gamer’s secret skill, which can be customised to specific buttons instead of the buttons you see on your screen. To take things one step further, you can even use the pop-up triggers as a shortcut button to activate the Poco F4 GT’s camera, screen recording or flashlight.

True-to-life visuals

The Poco F4 GT boasts a 6.67-inch flat AMOLED DotDisplay with Corning Gorilla Glass Victus protection, a 2,400x1,080 FHD+ resolution, and a 20:9 aspect ratio. The panel is tailor-made for gaming enthusiasts offering a 480Hz touch sampling rate and a 120Hz refresh rate for immersive gaming.

But even for content consumption, the 10-bit TrueColor Display is no slouch offering a strong 5,000,000:1 contrast ratio, HDR10+ certification and up to 800nits of brightness, which means more vibrant and closer to real-life colours.
