A few days ago Xiaomi already announced that the Poco F5 and Poco F5 Pro will be unveiled on May 9th. Today the company announced that the Pro model will have a flat WQHD+ display with a center punch hole for the selfie camera. You can also see the power button of the Poco cell phone on the right frame next to the volume rocker in the teaser images. The USB-C port, the SIM slot, a microphone and a speaker can be seen on the underside. Antenna cables, on the other hand, are not visible on the frame. That means that the Pro will also have a plastic housing.
A second teaser shows the back of the Poco F5 Pro and the upper frame. On the one hand, you can see the design with stripes in a carbon fiber look on the side. Poco calls these “Carbon Racing Stripes”. On the other hand, the picture reveals the camera setup, which consists of three lenses. Since the Pro is likely to be a rebranded Redmi K60, it should also have the same 64-megapixel main camera with OIS on board. In addition, Xiaomi installs an 8 megapixel ultra wide camera with a 118 degree field of view and a 2 megapixel macro camera.
The Poco F5 Pro is powered by a Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset, the fastest processor of 2022. Interestingly, the Redmi K60 stayed with the well-known battery capacity of 5,000 mAh. However, it charges with a record-breaking 120 watts for a Poco cell phone. This means that the battery, monitored by Xiaomi’s Surge P1 charging chip, goes from 0 to 100% in 19 minutes.

The base model Xiaomi Poco F5, on the other hand, is based on the Redmi Note 12 Turbo, which Xiaomi sells exclusively in China. New pictures show a new color, the pattern on the back of which also matches the Note 12 Turbo. The camera setup is identical to the Poco F5 Pro on paper. However, the 64 megapixel camera in the normal F5 does not have optical image stabilization. In addition, Xiaomi might also use different image sensors for the two models. Qualcomm’s new top chipset for the middle class, the Snapdragon 7+ Gen 2, takes over the drive.
