Poco X5 Pro 5G Rumors, Leaks, Expected Launch Date

Poco started the year with an entry-level phone called C50. The company is now looking to refresh its mid-range X-series. As per the latest rumors, the upcoming X5 series will be home to at least two phones: a vanilla and a Pro model. While the former is still shrouded in mystery, the latter has leaked in full ahead of the alleged January launch. So, let’s look at every bit of information that we have about the Poco X5 Pro, including specs, features, and launch.

Poco X5 Pro Rumors Roundup:

Another re-badge?

According to the India tipster Yogesh Brar, the upcoming Poco X5 Pro will be heavily based on Redmi Note 12 Pro Speed Edition. The phone was launched towards the end of last year. While Redmi Note 12 series made its debut in India last week, the Note 12 Pro Speed Edition is still a China-exclusive phone.

Rumored Specifications

If this new report comes true, Poco X5 Pro will take a completely different route than its predecessor. The main selling point of the Poco X3 Pro was the flagship-level Snapdragon 860 in the mid-range segment. However, it will now be replaced with Snapdragon 778G in the X5 Pro.


On the other hand, Poco X5 Pro will bring a beautiful 10-bit OLED screen which was missing from its predecessor. The 6.67-inch screen will sport the same 120Hz refresh rate and 240Hz touch sampling rate. Moreover, the X5 Pro will have support for HDR10+ and Dolby Vision.
