Poco M5 is all set to launch on September 5. Know what it has to offer as well as the price.
Earlier this year, Poco introduced its budget smartphone Poco M4 under Rs. 15,000. With a 90Hz AMOLED display and MediaTek Helio G96 chipset under the hood, the latest Poco M4 offered a basic experience to meet everyday needs. Now it has been confirmed that Poco will be rolling out its successor, the Poco M5 series, which is expected to launch in the global market on September 5. With some notable performance improvements and a new leather-like design, Poco M5 will hit the market in the next few days. Here’s everything you need to know about this budget smartphone Poco M5 – from its expected specs, price and variants.
Poco M5 expected specs
The upcoming M series will release two new smartphones – Poco M5 and Poco M5s. However, it seems that Indian users will only get the Poco M5 model. Poco has kept no secrets about the design. On the back, the phone will have a leather finish and a large horizontal camera body, which will have a triple camera sensor and an LED flash. There is still no information available on camera specs, but the previous Poco M4 had a 64MP LED triple camera setup.
In addition, it has a water-drop notch on the front for the selfie camera. Poco has confirmed that it will have a 6.58-inch FHD+ display with a 90Hz refresh rate and 240Hz touch frequency. It supports Widevine L1 support, which means you can enjoy OTT content in HD. The Poco M5 is powered by a 6nm MediaTek Helio G99 chipset paired with up to 6GB of LPDDR4X RAM and 128GB of storage.
Poco M5 expected price
Of course, the price of the Poco M5 will be revealed during its worldwide launch on September 5. However, a 91Mobile report quoted some sources as predicting that the Poco M5 will be available in two storage variants: 4GB RAM along with 64GB storage and 128GB storage models. According to the report, the entry-level variant can come with a price tag of EUR 189 (approximately Rs. 15,000), and the later version costs approximately EUR 209 (approximately Rs. 16,600).
