Xiaomi’s Poco brand is preparing to introduce a couple of new smartphones.
The announcement of the Poco M5 and M5s models is scheduled for September 5 at 14:00 Moscow time. Judging by the recent hint from the Poco brand itself, one of the models will be based on the fairly recent SoC MediaTek Helio G99. It is generally very similar to the Helio G96, but is produced on a much more modern 6 nm process technology.
Xiaomi does not yet have models on this platform, which means that at least because of this, the new Poco will not be a complete copy of any previously released Redmi model. At the same time, according to the rest of the parameters, it really can be a clone.
The source also says that one of the new products should get a 6.58-inch IPS screen, a 5000 mAh battery with 33-watt charging, 4-6 GB of RAM, up to 128 GB of flash memory and, in addition, a price of less than $ 190.
