We spotted Poco F5 Pro on Geekbench last week and now a new Xiaomi-made phone appeared, believed to be the vanilla Poco F5. The device with model number 23049PCD8G runs Android 13 on a Snapdragon 7+ Gen 2 chipset with 12GB RAM.
These Poco F5 specs are suspiciously similar to the Redmi Note 12 Turbo, currently available only in China. It wouldn’t be surprising if the two end up being identical, meaning we should expect the Poco F5 to have a 5,000 mAh battery with 67W charging and MIUI 14 on top of the Android OS. Other specs should include a 6.67” AMOLED and a 64MP main camera.
The Poco F-series is the mightiest lineup in the brand’s portfolio. The Snapdragon 7+ Gen 2 chipset might sound like a downgrade from the Snapdragon 870 on the Poco F4, but in reality, the new Qualcomm platform is bringing better battery efficiency and improved performance.
