Poco X5 5G – Specification and Price details
The first thing that will catch your eye about this phone is its camera island. The rectangular bump holds the camera modules, giving the phone an unmistakable look. You can choose from three bold color options: Supernova Green, Wildcat Blue, and Jaguar Black. Plus, the device has an IP53 rating, making it resistant to water and dust to a certain degree.
The front of the Poco X5 5G is dominated by a huge 6.67-inch Full HD+ Super AMOLED display, which boasts a 120Hz refresh rate, 240Hz touch sampling rate, and a peak brightness of 1200 nits. The screen is toughened with Corning Gorilla Glass and has SGS Care and Seamless Pro Display certifications. The phone is powered by the Snapdragon 695 chipset, which is paired with an Adreno 619 GPU. You can choose between 6GB or 8GB of RAM and 128GB or 256GB of storage. Additionally, the device supports Turbo RAM, which can add an extra 5GB of RAM.
The Poco X5 5G comes with a camera setup that includes a 48MP primary shooter, an 8MP ultra-wide camera, and a 2MP macro sensor.
