July 22, 2022 – After a year of the POCO M4 Series official release, we are now getting info about its successor. It seems that the POCO M5 Series announcement is imminent. And further details will surface in the incoming days.
According to @xiaomiui, there are two upcoming phones in the lineup: Model number, 22071219CG, and model number, 22071219CI. They will be codenamed “rock” and “stone.” One of the two will support NFC connectivity, while the other one won’t feature it.
Moreover, the 22071219CG appears to be the POCO M5. As a result, it looks that the global variant of the POCO M5 will include NFC capability, while the 22071219CI could be an Indian variant but lacks the feature.
We would also like to add that a device with 2207117BPG was certified by the FCC authority. Based on the listings, it says that the rebranded version of the Redmi Note 10S will be the POCO M5S. This is something we are not sure of but leaks from credible sources persist it’s indeed possible.
Also, the listing depicts the storage variants of the device: 4GB RAM + 64GB ROM, 4GB RAM + 128GB ROM, and 6GB RAM + 128GB ROM. The remaining unspecified specs and features may be the same as the Redmi Note 10S.
Therefore, the POCO M5S, based on the leaks and tips, will arrive with a 6.43-inch AMOLED 1080P resolution display, the MediaTek Helio G95 chip, and a juicy 5,000mAh battery partner with 18W fast charging. We can also expect a 64MP quad-back camera and a 13MP front-facing camera. And this new lineup may be released someday in August.
