Finally, the most-awaited flagship killer, POCO F5 Series, has now been globally launched today, May 09, 2023! To those looking for a smartphone that provides premium performance, a gorgeous display, an amazing camera, and an excellent battery life at a reasonable cost, look no farther than this newest POCO offer.
This is undoubtedly one of the most powerful and affordable flagship smartphones in the market right now. This product is the most recent offering of POCO, a Xiaomi subsidiary brand. That is why let’s not wait any longer and look at the specs offered by the POCO F5 Series.
The POCO F5 Specs
With a refresh rate of 120 Hz and a touch sampling rate of up to 480 Hz, the 6.67-inch AMOLED display on the POCO F5 offers fast visuals. The screen’s max brightness is 1300 nits, and HDR10+ is also supported. Having a cutout with a punch-hole for the selfie camera, the screen is shielded by Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection.
The F5 is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 7+ Gen 2 chipset, that offers a higher clock speed and improved AI performance. This smartphone offers an option of 8GB or 12GB of LPDDR5 RAM for a 256GB of UFS 3.1 storage. The phone also has a liquid cooling system to keep the temperature under control.
It boasts a quad-camera setup on the back, consisting of a 64MP main camera with both OIS and EIS, an 8MP ultra-wide-angle camera, and a 2MP macro camera. A 16MP selfie camera finishes this smartphone’s camera setup, along with a dual-LED flash and a laser autofocus sensor.
Under the hood is packed a 5000mAh battery that supports 67W fast charging. The phone can be fully charged in just 36 minutes using the included charger. The phone also supports reverse wireless charging and wireless power share. The phone runs on Android 13 and has a side-mounted fingerprint scanner, 5G connectivity, dual stereo speakers, Wi-Fi 6e, NFC, infrared functionality, hi-res audio, IR blaster, and a USB-C port.
The POCO F5 Pro Specs
The POCO F5 Pro maintains the same refresh and touch sampling rate as the F5, as well as the Gorilla Glass 5. However, it has a fingerprint scanner built into the display and its 6.67-inch AMOLED screen comes with WQHD+ quality instead of AMOLED, both of which are new to POCO devices.
With the rest of the specs, all are the same to the F5 version except the processor and the battery, alongside an additional camera and storage feature. Because of the F5 Pro’s Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 processor, it has been able to keep the same camera setup but provide an upgrade of the setup being able to support 8K video recording, night mode, pro mode, portrait mode, and more.
Another first for a POCO smartphone is that its 5160 mAh battery can support 67w wired and 30w wireless charging. The F5 Pro also offers storage of 256GB with options of 8GB and 12GB RAM, as well as a choice of 12GB RAM with 512GB storage.
