After refreshing its X-series of smartphones back in March with X5 and X5 Pro, POCO has now unveiled the flagship F-series. The latest iteration is home to two new smartphones: POCO F5 and F5 Pro. The latter is the most advanced phone from the company so far. So, let’s get into the specs, features, expected price, and availability of the POCO F5 Pro in Nepal.

POCO F5 Pro Overview:

Design and Display

The Poco F5 is heavily based on the China-only Redmi K60. Even the design is almost the same except for the POCO branding on the rear. Even the button placement is identical here. As the smartphone is a rebranded Redmi K60, it has a glass sandwich body tossed with an aluminum frame between.

Upfront, the F5 Pro features a 12-bit 6.67-inch AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate. The WQHD screen boasts 1400 nits of peak brightness and DCI P3 color gamut alongside HDR10+, Dolby Vision & 1920Hz PWM high-frequency dimming. It will also retain the under-display fingerprint scanner from the vanilla Redmi K60.

Under the hood, the smartphone is powered by Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset. This flagship 5G silicon from last year still packs a punch for performance. But POCO F5 Pro’s 8+ Gen 1 is slightly underclocked as it features one prime Cortex-X2 core at 3.0 GHz (< 3.2 GHz), three Cortex-A710 cores at 2.5 GHz (<2.75 GHz), and four Cortex-A510 cores at 1.8 GHz (< 2.0 GHz). The graphics are being handled by Adreno 730 GPU.

As for the memory configurations, the phone is available in 8GB and 12GB RAM variants. You get 256GB storage on both along with an additional 512GB option on the latter. And the phone boots on MIUI 14 skin based on Android 13 out of the box.


Coming to the optics, the POCO F5 Pro houses a triple camera setup. The primary camera uses a 64MP Omnivision OV64B sensor with Optical Image Stabilization. It is paired with an 8MP ultrawide and a 2MP macro sensor. While for selfies and video calls, the phone packs a 16MP snapper on the front.

Remaining Specs

Fueling the smartphone is a 5500mAh battery with 30W wireless charging compatibility, the first time on a POCO smartphone. The Li-Po cell also carries support for 67W wired fast charging.
