Poco X5 Pro 5G gets pictured, launch imminent

Rebrand of the Redmi Note 12 Pro Speed Edition

The Poco X4 Pro 5G was launched in February last year, so we expect the successor to be launched next month too. The X4 Pro 5G was a rebrand of the Redmi Note 11 Pro 5G and featured a Snapdragon 695 5G chipset, a 120Hz AMOLED display, 67W fast charging & more. In the Indian market, the phone was launched in March, and the starting price was ₹18,999. There are reports that the Poco X5 Pro 5G is launching earlier than expected in the Indian market, probably in the last week of this month.

Today, we got the live images of the Poco X5 Pro 5G and its retail box, courtesy of @JAOLtech on Twitter. The key specifications of the phone were shared too, which reveal that the X5 Pro 5G is a rebranded Redmi Note 12 Pro Speed Edition.
