Comprising two models aka Poco X5 5G and Poco X5 Pro 5G, the device made it to BIS and FCC listings with model number 22101320I. Soon, we got the device with model number 22101320C listed on China’s 3C certification as well hinting at an imminent launch.
Successor to the Poco X4 Series that arrived in India in March of this year, the Poco X5 Series belongs to the midrange segment of smartphones.

According to FCC listings, the Poco X5 Pro is likely to sport a 4,900 mAh battery, probably marketed as a 5,000 mAh battery pack. There’s 67W fast charging, Android 13-powered MIUI 14 out-of-the-box among others.
The reports further hint towards the inclusion of Snapdragon 765G+ whereas the vanilla version of the series is likely to gain Snapdragon 4 Gen 1 SoC under the hood. The Poco X5 5G is likely a rebranded Redmi Note 12 5G as both share similar model numbers. However, it remains to be seen if it materializes or not.
