This week saw the Poco X5 Pro smartphone's introduction in India, and the new mid-range Poco gadget makes a lot of promises for those looking for a performance-focused phone. The phone is powered by a Snapdragon chipset, and yes, MIUI is the operating system that runs on it. It also has a fast refresh rate screen.

Processor and hardware: The large camera module of the Poco X5 Pro is finished in black as part of a dual tone design. It has a 6.67-inch AMOLED screen with Full HD+ resolution and a refresh rate of 120 Hz. A Snapdragon 778G processor with 6GB or 8GB of RAM and up to 256GB of storage powers the phone. The phone has a thickness of 7.9mm and weighs 181 grammes, which isn't the heaviest model we've seen in recent years.

Camera: A 108-megapixel main sensor, an 8-megapixel ultrawide sensor, and a 2-megapixel macro sensor make up Poco's triple rear camera system. The phone sports a 16-megapixel camera on the front.

Other specifications: The only downside is that you still have Android 12 running on the phone, and the OS update support is unlikely to be long.  With a 5000mAh battery that should last well over a day and a 67W fast charging speed, the Poco X5 Pro should be able to recharge you quickly.

Price: Prices for the Poco X5 Pro in India start at Rs 22,999 for the 6GB + 128GB model and Rs 24,999 for the 8GB + 256GB version. There are a slew of discount offers available which can bring down the final buying price further.
