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 yet, and already gearing up to launch a new smartphone, the Poco F5 5G. The upcoming handset 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 Qualcomm’s 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
a 6.67-inch QHD+ AMOLED panel with a 120Hz refresh rate, up to 1,400 nits brightness, HDR10+ support, and 1,920Hz PWM dimming.
Redmi recently confirmed that the Redmi Note 12 Turbo will get a Snapdragon 7+ Gen 2 SoC. This means the Poco F5 5G could also feature the same chipset. The mid-range 5G smartphone could pack up to 12GB of RAM, and 256GB of storage. The 5G handset is expected to run on the latest version of Android 13 OS with a skin on top.
In terms of optics, the upcoming Poco F5 5G smartphone could feature a triple camera rear setup led by a 50-megapixel primary camera, followed by an 8-megapixel and a 2-megapixel secondary shooter. Adjacent to the triple camera setup could be placed an LED flash. Meanwhile, for selfies, the Poco F5 5G is expected to feature a 16-megapixel camera. The 5G smartphone could feature a 5,000mAh battery with support for 67W fast charging and 30W wireless fast charging.
