Citing an industry source, a report by 91mobiles reveals that the upcoming POCO M-series smartphone will make a debut in early September in the country. The POCO M5 4G will be the company’s first smartphone under the M5 series. The report further reveals that the upcoming POCO M5 4G will be powered by a gaming-centric MediaTek Helio G99 processor.

Earlier this month, POCO had posted a teaser on social media platforms that read G99 which sort of indicated that an Helio G99-powered device from the brand is incoming.

The POCO M5 4G is said to offer a 6.58-inch Full HD+ LCD display panel. We can expect the smartphone to offer a 90Hz refresh rate, if not 120Hz. The smartphone is tipped to sport an octa-core MediaTek Helio G99 processor and at least 6GB of RAM.

The POCO M5 4G is tipped to feature a 5000mAh battery. It will reportedly support at least 33W fast charging. Also, the smartphone might come with a chic-leather-like rear panel which POCO has been teasing on social media lately.

The upcoming POCO M-series smartphone might offer a side-mounted fingerprint scanner and might boot Android 12 out of the box. We can expect the company to drop teasers for the upcoming launch soon.
