The POCO X5 5G is said to be based on the Redmi Note 12 5G. While the Redmi phone has the Snapdragon 4 Gen 1 chip, the Poco model is said to be equipped with the slightly faster Snapdragon 695. The X5 may borrow the rest of its specs from the Redmi model.

According to rumours, the POCO X5 Pro 5G could be a rebranded version of the Redmi Note 12 Pro Speed Edition, which is only available in China. The X5 Pro is likely to feature the same display that will be available on the X5. It may feature the Snapdragon 778G chipset, up to 8GB of LPDDR4x RAM, up to 256GB of UFS 2.2 storage, a 5,000mAh battery with 67W fast charging, a 16-megapixel front camera, and a 108-megapixel (main) + 8-megapixel (ultra-wide) + 2-megapixel (macro) triple camera unit.
The POCO X5 series may run on MIU 14-based Android 13 OS. Both phones may come equipped with a side-facing fingerprint scanner. The leaked renders show that the POCO X5 may arrive in black and green, whereas the Pro model could be coming in black, yellow, and blue.
