Hong Kong, CHINA – January 30, 2023 – POCO is now initiating its first move in 2023. The independent company will release its 3rd iteration of the POCO X lineup, the POCO X5 Series. There will be two devices for now, which are the POCO X5 5G and the POCO X5 Pro 5G.
With the help of tips and leaks, we were able to glean all the necessary information we needed to conclude that the POCO X5 Pro 5G is the rebranded Global Version of the Redmi Note 12 Pro Speed Edition. Meanwhile, the base version, POCO X5 is the rebranded Global version of Redmi Note 12 5G with altered, better specifications and features. With that being said, we already have an idea of what these devices would be able to provide their consumers.
Both devices will come with a punch hole in the middle. That design has been the iteration of the lineup ever since POCO X3. Moreover, the POCO X3 offers a slightly curved rear design, however, I don’t think that the design is much of a 3D, but rather a 2D. On the other hand, the POCO X5 Pro 5G depicts flatter edges.
At the back, the camera island design looks like a combination of camera sizes and placement of POCO X4 GT and POCO X4 Pro. Then, the POCO design will emerge on the right side like its predecessor. The triple camera is on a portrait rectangle while the island is on a horizontal rectangle.
