Xiaomi-owned subsidiary brand Poco just launched the Poco X5 mid-range smartphone in India on March 14. However, the company is reportedly not resting just yet and is already gearing up to launch a new smartphone, the Poco F5 5G. The upcoming phone is believed to be a rebranded version of the unreleased Redmi Note 12 Turbo, which ships with the recently announced Qualcomm Snapdragon 7+ Gen 2 SoC. This could mean that the Poco F5 5G smartphone could also be equipped with a Qualcomm SoC.
According to a report by 91mobiles, the Poco FG smartphone, which is said to be the rebranded version of the Redmi Note 12 Turbo, may feature
6.67-inch QHD+ AMOLED panel with 120Hz refresh rate, up to 1400 nits brightness, HDR10+ support and 1920Hz PWM dimming.
Redmi recently confirmed that the Redmi Note 12 Turbo will get the Snapdragon 7+ Gen 2 SoC. This means that the Poco F5 5G could also feature the same chipset. The mid-range 5G smartphone can include up to 12 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage. The 5G phone is expected to run the latest version of Android 13 OS with skin on top.
In terms of optics, the upcoming Poco F5 5G smartphone may feature a triple rear camera setup led by a 50-megapixel primary camera, followed by an 8-megapixel and a 2-megapixel secondary camera. An LED flash can be placed next to the triple camera setup. Meanwhile, for selfies, the Poco F5 5G is expected to feature a 16-megapixel camera. The 5G smartphone may feature a 5,000mAh battery with support for 67W fast charging and 30W wireless fast charging.
However, it is important to note that neither Xiaomi nor Poco have made any announcements or confirmations regarding the release, specifications or design of the alleged Poco F5 5G smartphone.
