The device might have poor specs on paper, but it appears to be geared towards a section of 2G users on other carriers who are looking to try out the smartphone experience for the first time – but cheaper options do exist, like the Samsung Galaxy M01 Core.

The Poco M4 Pro is expected to launch later this month on November 9, bringing with it the MediaTek Dimensity 810 processor, according to reports. However, there is speculation that the device could come with the MediaTek 700 processor, as well, so users will have to wait until launch time to know which chipset the device will sport. The Poco M4 Pro could come with a 5,000mAh battery under the hood. The device could sport a 6.5-inch FHD+ 90Hz display, and in expected to come with a triple camera setup, including a 50MP primary camera.

Asus 8Z

Several months after the Asus Zenfone 8 was launched globally, the device is yet to arrive in India. While the company had previously revealed the device could come at a later stage due to delays caused by the novel coronavirus pandemic, it is currently unclear whether the device will launch in the country this month. The Asus 8Z, which is the expected name of the device in the country, could come with Snapdragon 888 chipset, paired with up to 16GB of RAM and 256GB of storage. However, Asus is yet to officially announce a launch date or pricing for the device in the country.
