Poco F5 5G set to launch in India on April 6 and may feature Snapdragon 7+ Gen 2 SoC
Xiaomi subsidiary Poco has just launched the Poco X5 mid-range smartphone in India on March 14. However, the company would not be at rest yet and is already preparing to launch a new smartphone, the Poco F5 5G. The next handset is believed to be a rebranded version of the unreleased Redmi Note 12 Turbo, which comes with the recently announced Qualcomm Snapdragon 7+ Gen 2 SoC. This could mean that the Poco F5 5G smartphone could also feature 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 120Hz refresh rate, up to 1400 nits brightness, HDR10+ support and 1920Hz PWM dimming.
Redmi recently confirmed that the Redmi Note 12 Turbo will receive a Snapdragon 7+ Gen 2 SoC. This means that the Poco F5 5G could also feature the same chipset. The mid-range 5G smartphone can pack up to 12GB of RAM and 256GB of storage. The 5G handset is expected to run on the latest Android OS version 13 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 2-megapixel secondary shooter. Next to the triple camera setup, an LED flash could be placed. Meanwhile, for selfies, the Poco F5 5G is expected to sport a 16-megapixel camera. The 5G smartphone could feature a 5,000mAh battery supporting 67W fast charging and 30W wireless fast charging.
However, it is important to note that Xiaomi or Poco have not made any announcement or confirmation regarding the launch, specs or design of the alleged Poco F5 5G smartphone.
