POCO is a sub-brand of the Chinese smartphone manufacturer Xiaomi that was launched in 2018. POCO aims to offer high-end specifications at a lower price point than Xiaomi’s flagship devices, making them an attractive option for budget-conscious consumers. The ‘POCO X’ lineup is the brand’s flagship line of smartphones that are known for their powerful processors, high refresh rate displays, large batteries, and attractive designs. POCO launched X5 Pro 5G on February 06, 2023, in India. Let’s see POCO X5 Pro’s features and price.
Key Features of POCO X5 Pro 5G
Read on to get a detailed review of X5 Pro.
Despite looking distinct from the Poco X4 Pro, the Poco X5 Pro bears a clear resemblance to its predecessor. Its design features flat sides, a flat rear panel, and a flat screen, giving it a slab-like appearance that is shared by other smartphones, such as the Redmi Note 11 Pro and the Xiaomi 12 Lite. These comparisons are significant as these devices share many similarities.
Although the POCO X5 Pro’s chassis seems to be made of metal and the screen is protected by Gorilla Glass 5, the back panel is constructed of plastic.

In keeping with convention, the camera module is positioned in the top left corner, with the branding placed alongside it against a black background, creating the illusion that the module is much larger than it really is. POCO has worked with the same design approach that it used with the X4 Pro, though with a different orientation.
The POCO X5 Pro is quite large, measuring 76mm in width and 7.9mm in thickness, which is further accentuated by its flat sides. Its dimensions make it unwieldy for one-handed use, and it is not an ideal choice for individuals with smaller hands.
Although POCO claims that this is the thinnest phone in its X-series lineup, with the X4 Pro measuring 8.1mm in thickness, it is unlikely that you will be able to detect the 0.2mm difference between the two models.
