The IMEI listing reveals that the POCO M5 has the model number 22071219CG. While the IMEI website does not help with any of the specs, the FCC listing reveals that the phone runs MIUI 13 out of the box. We can expect the M5 to run Android 12 out of the box. The phone will support 2.4GHz and 5GHz dual-band WiFi as well.
Other details of the M5 4G are known at the moment. Both devices, the M5 and M5s were spotted on the IMDA Singapore certification website. The FCC listing of the M5s previously confirmed many important details of the M5s though. It revealed that the phone is a rebadged Redmi Note 10S from 2021. It will launch with three storage options – 4GB + 64GB, 4GB + 128GB and 6GB + 128GB storage options. It will launch in a blue colour option. POCO is likely to launch the phone in more colours.
Since the phone is a rebadged Note 10S, it will draw power from a MediaTek Helio G95 processor. There will be a 6.43-inch AMOLED display with a Full HD+ resolution. The phone will also sport a quad-camera setup on the back with a 64MP main camera. Alongside, there will be an 8MP ultra-wide camera and two 2MP sensors.
