As a brand, Poco really wants to appeal to young tech enthusiasts. This time they want to do that with two ‘all-in fun’ smartphones. The Poco M5 for gamers and the Poco M5s for entertainment enthusiasts.
The Poco M5 has a MediaTek Helio G99 chipset on board with 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB or 128 GB of storage memory. There are other variations, but they don’t seem to be on the market here. The device has a 6.58-inch Full HD+ Display of 90Hz. The cameras consist of a 50 megapixel main camera, a two megapixel depth sensor and a two megapixel macro camera. The battery has a capacity of 5,000 mAh and supports 18W fast charging.
The Poco M5s is just a step up from the regular M5. Partly then, because this device has an AMOLED screen of 6.43 inches with a Full HD resolution. The chipset is a MediaTek Helio G95 and seems to be a step back from the M5. The cameras seem to be a step better with a 64 megapixel main camera and eight megapixel ultra-wide angle camera. Two depth sensors calculate the depth. The selfie camera is a thirteen megapixel camera. The battery also has a capacity of 5,000 mAh.
