The Poco F5 Pro appeared on Geekbench last week. Today another model with the model number 23049PCD8G hit the benchmarking platform – the Xiaomi Poco F5. Under the hood was a Snapdragon 7+ Gen 2 chipset paired with 12GB of RAM. The same components also power the Xiaomi Redmi Note 12 Turbo, which should serve as the basis.
According to the Geekbench test, the global variant of the Xiaomi Poco F5 (23049PCD8G) boots Android 13, probably with Xiaomi’s MIUI interface in the current version 14. In the benchmark, the Xiaomi smartphone achieved 1,629 single-core and 4,295 multi-core points. Both values fit well with the Snapdragon 7+ Gen 2, Qualcomm’s new top mid-range chipset.
Qualcomm later confirmed on its Twitter account for India that it is indeed the Poco F5. According to the company, the performance is 50% higher compared to the Snapdragon 7 Gen 1. In addition, the processor achieves 13% better energy efficiency and twice the AI performance.
The Xiaomi Redmi Note 12 Turbo is currently only available in China and would therefore not compete with the international Poco F5. In the turbo, a 5,000 mAh battery with 67 watt charging takes over the power supply. In addition to Android 13, MIUI 14 is also on board, as is a 6.67-inch AMOLED display and a 64-megapixel main camera.
The Poco F series represents the flagships in the brand’s portfolio. The Snapdragon 7+ Gen 2 chipset might sound like a downgrade from the Snapdragon 870 in the predecessor Xiaomi Poco F4. In fact, the new Qualcomm platform runs both faster and more efficiently.
