Earlier this month, what was thought to be the upcoming POCO X5 was spotted in the hands of an Indian cricketer, who has now been confirmed as the brand’s official ambassador. Now, a Bulgarian retailer has apparently listed the near-complete specs sheet of two devices: the POCO X5 and X5 Pro.
If the listing is to be believed, we might see some not see any significant upgrades in the Pro save for the chipset. The display doesn’t seem to have been replaced as it uses a 6.67-inch AMOLED panel and, while it’s not listed, should have the same 120Hz refresh rate as the X4 Pro.
It claims that the POCO X5 Pro will run on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G, a respectably more powerful chip than its predecessor’s Snapdragon 695 SoC. The phone will have configurations with up to 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage with a microSD card slot for storage expansion.
The device seems to feature the familiar three-camera setup on the back consisting of a 108MP primary camera, an 8MP ultrawide, and a 2MP with 4K video recording thanks to the new chip while the front uses a 16MP selfie camera. It will be powered by an unchanged 5,000mAh capacity battery with 67W charging and carry an IP68 rating for dust and water resistance.
There is also a purported vanilla POCO X5 that will be launched alongside the Pro, which is listed to run on the Snapdragon 695 and sport the same display as its higher-end counterpart with an IP54 rating. The base X5 has a 48MP main rear camera, 8MP ultra-wide, 2MP macro, and a 13MP front shooter.
The X5 similarly has up to 8GB of RAM and 256GB of expandable storage, powered with a 5,000mAh battery and a slower 33W charging speed. The POCO X5 Pro will reportedly ship with Android 12 while the X5 will run on Android 11. For now, the actual pricing and launch date have not been revealed by the brand yet but a leaked image suggests it may debut on 6 February.
