Poco is not bringing the 5G version (Poco M5S) of the phone to the Indian market. Featuring a 6.58-inch IPS LCD FullHD+ display with a 90Hz refresh rate, the device will reportedly be backed by a 5,000mAh battery that supports 33W fast charging. The touch screen has a sampling rate of 240 Hz. And similar to the previous version, the power button is expected to include the fingerprint scanner.
The Poco M5 is rumored to run on MIUI 13 based on Android out of the box and will come in three configurations with the phone having up to 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal storage. A recent tweet from Poco also revealed that the phone will be available in two colors – yellow and blue – and it will have a premium leather-like texture on the back.
Judging by Poco India’s tweet a few days ago, the price of Poco M5 could be somewhere between Rs 10,000 and Rs 13,000.
