What we have is in the Powder Black color, it is still such a smudge magnet so better to use the case included in the box. The POCO M4 Pro 5G is also available in other color variants, there’s Cool Blue and a signature POCO Yellow colorway.

Meanwhile, for selfies, we get a 16MP front camera. We’ll talk more about this in our full review, but for now, take a look at the few sample photos we got:
