Poco M4 Pro 5G has a build of a glass front, plastic back and a plastic frame. On the front of the phone resides a centred punch-hole display, similar to the one on its predecessor. On the back is where the major changes can be seen. There, the camera panel is accompanied together by the POCO branding in a huge black shape that pretty much covers the whole top area of the phone. This can be a topic for discussion while purchasing the phone.

However, the matte finish on the back looks pleasing. The phone weighs 195 grams and is 8.8mm thick. The phone has a side-mounted fingerprint sensor for security purposes. The phone also has an official IP53 rating for dust and splash resistance.

Poco M4 Pro 5G features a 6.6-inch IPS LCD display with a maximum resolution of 1,080*2,400 pixels. The display offers a refresh rate of 90Hz and can achieve a peak brightness of up to 450 nits while it has a touch sampling rate of 240Hz. The display gets protection from Corning Gorilla Glass 3.

Poco M4 Pro 5G features a dual camera on the rear and a single selfie shooter on the front. The 50MP main camera on the back is housed together with an 8MP, 119-degree FOV ultra-wide camera. The main camera can record videos in 1080p and up to 60fps but there is no EIS. There is a night mode feature on the camera for shooting in low light conditions but is supported by the main 50MP sensor only.

The phone gets a UFS 2.2 64GB or 128GB internal storage coupled up with either 4GB or 6GB of LPDDR4X RAM. The internal storage of the phone can be expanded up to 1TB with a microSDXC card.
