Poco X5 Pro Specifications And Features
Poco X5 Pro is dubbed to be a power-packed device, using a capable Snapdragon chipset and giving you credible features that will make your money worth. Poco has already confirmed some of the features of the upcoming phone like the display quality, design and the camera megapixel count at the back. We’ve also got a decent idea about the look and feel of the phone via the design renders that had recently surfaced on the web. Here is a quick look at the Poco X5 Pro features that we will be seeing next week.
120Hz AMOLED Display
Poco X5 Pro is rumoured to feature an AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate screen which has definitely become the norm for a mid-ranged device in the market these days. We also expect the phone’s screen to support Full HD+ resolution and offer it with Corning Gorilla Glass 5 for additional durability. The screen should be coming with a punch-hole cutout, unless Poco springs a surprise, which is unlikely.
Snapdragon Powering The Device
Poco X-series are popular among power users and gamers. The next version is likely to follow suit by using the reliable Snapdragon 778G chipset which is a proven entity in the market, powering devices that come for a much higher price. We have used devices with this processor and rest assured, you will never feel that the performance is lacking.
Goodness of 108 MP Main Camera
Poco X5 Pro is rumoured to carry a triple rear camera system and the main sensor is expected to be 108MP. Usually we say that higher megapixel count does not mean better quality but in this case, the 108MP camera could be a solid performer in day and low light conditions. We’re eager to see how Poco plans to offer the camera tech on this device.
Other specifications and features
Poco X5 Pro is likely to sport a 6.67-inch screen size with a high refresh rate support that may or may not be adaptive. Like we mentioned, leaked reports suggest Poco X5 Pro will only launch with 8GB RAM and 256GB storage in the country, which allows the company to price aggressively. The secondary and tertiary camera sensors could be an 8MP ultra-wide and a 2MP macro shooter, respectively.
Poco could bring the phone in blue, yellow and black colours as per the teasers and the phone is likely to get a 5000mAh battery which supports 67W fast charging speed with the bundled charger in the box. Rumours also indicate that the Poco X5 Pro could be an IP68-rated device and come with a thickness of under 8mm which is manageable.
