Poco F5 draws closer to launch as Poco X5 and Poco X5 Pro specs leak online
Poco has begun its teaser campaign for the Poco X5 series. Both the Poco X5 and Poco X5 Pro are expected to launch soon, and it appears the Poco F5 may not be far from its release as well—if a new report is anything to go by.
According to Mukul Sharma, the Poco F5 is now in production. Supposedly, Xiaomi has now started serial production of the Poco F4's successor, with the phone set to launch in various European and Asian markets. While the source is typically reliable, the timeline between posts like this and the actual release of the device usually ranges anywhere between two and four months. That considered, it's likely the Poco F5 launches around April or May.
The Poco X5 series will debut way before that, however, as Poco has already started its teaser campaign for the Poco X5 and Poco X5 Pro. According to word on the grapevine, the Poco X5 will be a rebadged Redmi Note 12, while the Poco X5 Pro will be a rebranded Redmi Note 12 Pro Speed Edition. That is corroborated by prior reports and implies a Snapdragon 695 for the vanilla model and a Snapdragon 778G for the Poco X5 Pro.
