While Guglani is mostly accurate with his leaks, we advise taking the F5 5G’s pricing details with a pinch of salt.
The F5 5G is likely a rebadged Redmi Note 12 Turbo from China. The leaked details, which include design renders and specifications, suggest the same. The phone will sport a 6.67-inch AMOLED display with a Full HD+ resolution and a 120Hz refresh rate. The screen is flat and has a hole-punch cutout at the top centre.
The upcoming POCO F-series phone is likely to launch with 8GB + 256GB and 12GB + 256GB storage options. On the back, there will be a triple-camera setup. There will be a 64MP main camera sensor, an 8MP ultra-wide camera and a 2MP macro sensor. For selfies, the phone will feature a 16MP front camera sensor. The device is tipped to pack a 5000mAh battery and offer 67W fast charging support. Lastly, the phone is expected to run Android 13 out of the box and have a layer of MIUI 14 on top.
