In June of this year, we witnessed the announcement of the POCO F4 5G, a tweaked version of the Redmi K40s, made available exclusively in the Chinese market. Now, as we just discovered, it seems POCO is gearing up to unveil the successor of the POCO F4- the POCO F5 5G.
POCO F5 5G Visits EEC
As we confirmed in a tweet from the popular, reliable mobile leaker, a new POCO F5 5G was reported to have visited the EEC certification center. The EEC document revealed that the upcoming POCO F5 5G was published today, 17th October 2022, on the EEC website with the model number 23013PC75G.
POCO F5 5G Earlier Leaked
However, in the last few days, the POCO F5 5G was reported to have leaked on different database centers revealing some expected specifications and design. The report confirmed that the upcoming POCO F5 5G will be a rebranded version of the Redmi K60 5G and is expected to debut in the first quarter of 2023.
Meanwhile, it should be noted that a new Xiaomi phone with model number 23013RK75C (Chinese variant) has appeared in the IMEI database. Its Indian variant with the 23013PC75I model number and the global version with the 23013PC75G model number have also surfaced in the IMEI database.
The device is said to make its debut as the Redmi K60 in China and then as the POCO F5 5G in international countries and India. The “23” stands for 2023, the “01” stands for January, the initials “PC” stand for POCO, the “75” alludes to the “M11A” model number, and the “G/I” stands for Global/India. Similarly, the letters “RK” in model number 23013RK75C seem to allude to the Redmi K-series for the Chinese market.
POCO F5 5G Expected Specs
On the other hand, based on the leaked reports, the upcoming POCO F5 is codenamed “Mandarin.” The device is anticipated to include an AMOLED display with a 2K resolution of 1440 x 3200 pixels, a refresh rate of 120 Hz, and a brightness of 1000 nits. The Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 processor will be used to power the smartphone.
At the same time, the Redmi K60 will probably have similar specifications. However, the Redmi K60’s further features have not yet been made public, although both devices are expected to launch in Q1 2023. Thus, stay connected with TechGenyz for more updates.
