POCO just launched a couple of new enticing midrange phones. We got a quick peek at the new base POCO X5 5G model, which still brings a lot to the table for young content consumers (and even budding creators).


The POCO X5 5G comes built with a 6.67-inch AMOLED DotDisplay with a 120Hz refresh rate, 4,500,000:1 contrast ratio, and a DCI-P3 wide color gamut for excellent image reproduction. 


It stays slim and light at only 189g, despite packing in a Qualcomm Snapdragon 695 chipset. It is available with either 6GB of RAM with 128GB of storage or 8GB of RAM with 256GB of storage. With Dynamic RAM Expansion Technology 3.0, you can expect support for more apps running in the background.

It comes with a long-lasting 5,000mAh battery with support for 33W charging. POCO rates the battery to last up to 21 hours if you’re streaming YouTube videos or around 12 hours of social media scrolling. And you can charge it back to life from 0% in 68 minutes.


The POCO X5 5G will be available exclusively through Shopee in three colors: Green, Blue, and Black. The 6GB variant goes for USD 199 / PHP 14,999, with an early bird price of PHP 12,499 (around USD 228). Meanwhile, the 8GB option retails for USD 249 / PHP 15,999, with an early bird price of PHP 13,499 (~USD 247). The early bird sale kicks off tomorrow, February 7.

It gets a 6.67-inch Flow AMOLED screen with 120Hz refresh rate, Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G 5G chipset, and the flagship level 108-megapixel sensor. It also packs in a 5,000mAh battery with 67W turbo charging. 

The POCO X5 Pro 5G has the same storage and RAM configuration as the POCO X5, with a price of USD 299 / PHP 16,999 for the 6GB model and USD 349 / PHP 18,999 for the 8GB variant. It comes in Black, Blue, and Yellow. In the Philippines, it will be available exclusively on Lazada.
