The Poco F5 is slated to debut in India in the near future. Recent sightings of the phone on several certification sites are indicative of its impending release. The Poco F5, which will replace the Poco F4 in India in June 2022, will reportedly make its debut as a renamed Redmi Note 12 Turbo.
Earlier this year, in March, the Redmi phone debuted in China with a limited-edition Harry Potter model. Even though Poco hasn’t said when the Poco F5 will be released, we now know that it will be equipped with the Snapdragon 7+ Gen 2 SoC.
Poco F5 Specifications
The forthcoming Poco F5 will be the first device in India to have Snapdragon’s new 7+ Gen 2 SoC, as verified by Snapdragon (@Snapdragon_IN) in a tweet. Himanshu Tandon (@Himanshu_POCO), head of Poco in India, used this tweet to support his assertion that the Poco F5 would be the company’s “most powerful” smartphone to date.
Compared to the earlier Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 SoC, the Snapdragon 7+ Gen 2 manufactured using 4nm TSMC technology is said to increase overall performance of the phone by 50%. There are claims that the new chipset can double AI performance, boost battery life by 13%, and provide support for Wi-Fi 6.
The Poco F5 smartphone, with model number 23049PCD8I, was recently detected on Geekbench. At least two storage configurations, 8GB + 256GB and 12GB + 256GB, are anticipated for the device.
There is speculation that it is a rebranded Redmi Note 12 Turbo, thus, identical specs should be available. Therefore, the Poco F5 might have a 6.67-inch full-HD+ (2,400 x 1,080) AMOLED display with a refresh rate of 120Hz, a touch sampling rate of 240Hz, and a peak brightness of 1000 nits.
The Poco F5 is said to include a Snapdragon 7+ Gen 2 system-on-chip (SoC), an Adreno GPU, up to 16GB of LPDDR5 RAM, and UFS 3.1 storage. MIUI 14, based on Android 13, will power the device.
The phone might include a triple camera setup, with a main sensor measuring 64 megapixels, an ultra-wide-angle lens measuring 8 megapixels, and a macro lens measuring 2 megapixels. A centralised hole punch at the top of the screen might accommodate a 16 megapixel front-facing camera.
The Poco F5 is said to include a 5,000 mAh battery and 67W fast charging, as well as a fingerprint scanner embedded into the display for further protection.
