Today, Poco launched two phones in the global market under the F5 series. We already talked about the Poco F5 in the previous article, which is a mid-range phone powered by the Snapdragon 7+ Gen 2 SOC. Alongside that phone, the company launched its flagship phone, the Poco F5 Pro. The F5 Pro is powered by the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 SOC, making it the most powerful Poco smartphone.

Also, if you don’t know yet, the Poco F5 Pro is a rebranded Redmi K60 with some minor specification changes.
