POCO F5 5G with 2K resolution appears on IMEI database

The successor of POCO F4 5G was supposedly spotted on the IMEI database, as originally reported by Xiaomiui. According to the report, the POCO F5 5G is codenamed Mondrian and will be a rebadged variant of the Redmi K60, but for international markets.

It is set to debut in January 2023, likely weeks after the Xiaomi Redmi K60 launched in China. The report also removes the model number of the Redmi K60 (23013RK75C), along with its Indian and global variants (23013PC75G) under the POCO brand.

The POCO F5 5G is supposed to use the latest and greatest from Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 chipset, which uses TSMC’s efficient 4nm line and should provide a decent performance boost if you’re coming from the Snapdragon 870-based POCO F4 5G.

This will put the F5 on a par with 2022’s high-end Android models that are powered by the same processor, including the Samsung Galaxy S22 Series and Galaxy Z Fold4 and Galaxy Z Flip4 Foldables. The ASUS ROG Phone 6 Series is also built around the same powerful 5G chipset.

The screen could be another strong point of the smartphone. It is said to feature a 2K AMOLED panel with a 120Hz refresh rate – a first for a POCO smartphone. It is said to use a resolution of 1440 x 3200 pixels and offer 1000 nits of peak brightness.

As of this writing, not much else is known about the POCO F5 5G, but we expect that to change once the device is listed on certification websites, perhaps. be in a few weeks.
