Like its doppelganger, the POCO F4 GT’s standout features are its use of a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor and a new dual vapor chamber cooling system to handle the processor’s thermals especially in heavy loads. As a Gaming Edition, you still get those pop-up shoulder triggers to improve your gaming experience.
As a flagship killer, you get goodies like a 6.67-inch 120hz AMOLED display, 120w wired charging, 20-megapixel IMX596 selfie snapper, JBL-tuned stereo speakers, and a triple rear camera setup that consists of a 64-megapixel IMX686 main camera, 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera, and 2-megapixel macro camera.
If its official price is not enticing enough, the POCO F4 GT will have an early bird price of Php 24,390 and Php 27,990 for the 8GB/128GB and 12GB/256GB variants respectively from April 28 to May 12. That’s not all: the first 80 buyers of either variant will get a Mi True Wireless Earphones 2S with their purchase, making this POCO F4 GT offer in the Philippines one of the best deals you can get for this year.
