Xiaomi is now selling the POCO M5 and POCO M5s in the Eurozone. While the pair sound like similar devices, the POCO M5 and POCO M5s look rather different and do not share many components either. The POCO M5 and POCO M5s are both available with introductory discounts, though.

A week ago, Xiaomi launched POCO M5 and POCO M5s, two smartphones that do not look like they belong to the same family. Still, the company has started selling both simultaneously and with identical introductory offers. Incidentally, early orders will receive double POCO points too, as well as two months subscription to YouTube Premium. However, only the POCO M5s also comes with a complimentary 33 W power adapter.

Currently, all SKUs are discounted by €20. According to POCO's website, the promotion will last until the end of September 17, although we would not be surprised if Xiaomi ran a comparable promotion after the pre-sale event ends. As such, the POCO M5 starts at €169.90 with 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage. Alternatively, Xiaomi charges €20 more for the device with double the storage but the same amount of RAM. At the time of writing, the device's three launch colours remain in stock, such as its striking yellow option.

By contrast, the POCO M5s comes in Blue, Grey and White colour options, but starts at €189.90 with 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage. Similarly, the 128 GB variant retails for €20 more but should eventually cost €229.90. For reference, the POCO M5 should be the more powerful of the two, while the POCO M5s may have a more colour accurate display, thanks to its reliance on AMOLED technology. You can find out more details about both smartphones in our corresponding launch articles.
