POCO X5 5G Geekbench

The POCO X5 5G will be a new mid-range smartphone from the company. It is expected to launch in India and other markets very soon. Ahead of the official launch, the vanilla model has been spotted on Geekbench with model number 22111317PG. The global variant of the phone will feature a Qualcomm Snapdragon 695 SoC. It has a peak clock speed of 2.21GHz. The SoC is paired with an Adreno 619 GPU for graphics. There is 8GB of RAM in the variant listed on Geekbench. We can expect POCO to launch the phone with 6GB of RAM as well.

The device listed on Geekbench runs Android 12 out of the box. It is likely to run MIUI 13 out of the box. It would be nice if POCO launches the phone with Android 13 out of the box, considering the latest software version has been around for quite some time. If not out of the box, POCO is likely to release an OTA update in the coming months. The X5 5G scored 693 and 2113 in Geekbench’s single-core and multi-core tests. 

The phone was rumoured to launch as a rebadged Redmi Note 12 5G but pack a different processor. It is unknown if the device will share other hardware with the Note 12 5G. In case it does, the phone could feature a 48MP triple-camera setup, a 6.67-inch OLED 120Hz display, a 5000mAh battery with 33W fast charging, etc.

POCO is expected to share some more details about the phone soon. Meanwhile, let us know your thoughts about the upcoming X5 series in the comments below.
