Poco is no stranger to offering great value-for-money smartphones, as mid-tier devices like the Poco F4 and Poco X3 Pro delivered solid bang for buck in the last year or two. The company has also offered its low-end Poco M series for a while now, and it’s back with another entry.

The Poco M4 is the Xiaomi-affiliated brand’s latest M-series phone, and the first thing you’ll notice about it is the rather interesting rear design. Expect a matte polycarbonate back in blue, yellow, or black, along with a black polycarbonate camera window stretching across to the left and right edges. Otherwise, a flat panel is available up-front along with a waterdrop notch and a fairly substantial chin.
