However, at present, there is no information available about the POCO M5 5G.

According to the publication, the POCO M5 4G will be powered by the MediaTek Helio G99 chipset. As far as other specifications are concerned, it may come with a 6.58-inch LCD screen, which may offer a Full HD+ resolution. The Helio G99-powered device may offer at least 6GB of RAM. While it is not mentioned in the report, the device may offer up to 128GB of storage.
The POCO M5 could be backed by a 5,000mAh battery that will support 33W fast charging. The device may come equipped with a side-mounted fingerprint scanner. The device may boot to Android 12 OS with MIUI 13 on top. It may arrive with the usual connectivity options, such as dual SIM, 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.0, a USB Type-C port, and a 3.5mm headphone jack. The publication has learned through industry sources that the POCO M5 4G will have an attractive design as it will retain the leather-like design on the rear shell.
