It comes in two models: POCO F5 and POCO F5 Pro, both powered with Snapdragon processors that offer top-quality performance that lets users unlock their potential in gaming, and photography, and experience seamless browsing.
To celebrate, POCO head of product marketing Angus Ng graced the media event to discuss the exciting new smartphone and its hyper-powered features last May 10, 2023
“We are thrilled to bring POCO’s latest flagship smartphones to the Philippines,” Ng said. “With the POCO F5 Series, we aim to elevate the mobile experience to a whole new level, and we cannot wait to share this incredible journey with all our Filipino fans.”
“Our focus is to ensure POCO’s fans in the Philippines and elsewhere can enjoy flagship-quality phones at affordable price ranges, providing them with an incredible experience,” Ng added.
POCO F5 Pro: Ignite your hyper-powered performance and visuals
The POCO F5 Pro is equipped with the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 processor, which operates at low power consumption while maintaining high performance. It runs on a 5160mAh battery that will last the whole day, and offers a choice of multiple fast charging methods, making this a reliable companion day and night. With its 67W turbocharging technology, the phone will power up to 50% in about 15 minutes; while the 30W wireless charger can do the same within 30 minutes.
The device also delivers incredible visual experiences that go beyond expectations. The hyper clear WQHD+ 120Hz AMOLED display features 1400nits (peak brightness) and 68 billion true-to-life colors. It looks almost twice as clear as an FHD+ display and reveals more details than ever, from raindrops on flowers to appetizing food photos and even the subtle details of a bird’s feather. On top of that, the self-developed super touch makes gaming steadier and more accurate and ultimately increases the chances of winning.
For users’ photo and video needs, the POCO F5 Pro has a steady, fast camera that produces photos and videos with hyperclarity. Images are made prettier than ever, with high-definition output and a P3 color gamut that is 25% larger than sRGB. Moreover, it supports 8K video shooting, while OIS and EIS ensure video stability, especially when capturing fast and unpredictable subjects like animals, children, sports games, music performances, and busy events.
POCO F5: The origin of speed delivered by market-first Snapdragon 7+ Gen 2
As the first smartphone featuring Snapdragon 7+ Gen 2 in global markets, POCO F5 is explicitly created for techies who love mobile gaming. It delivers a robust and smooth performance even when switching between multiple apps, from scrolling and browsing to video calls and watching live streamings. The brand-new 5G chipset Antutu score is 31% higher than the previous generation. To provide a better gaming experience, LiquidCool Technology 2.0’s Vapor Chamber with steam channels comes into play, absorbing the heat generated as the chipset gets hotter and improving heat dissipation by 35%
The device offers users a comfortable visual experience, multitasking amongst apps, even during long gaming sessions or a busy day. In addition, users can enjoy their favorite content on the 6.67-inch 120Hz Flow AMOLED DotDisplay. Thanks to the 1920Hz PWM dimming and SGS-certified Low Blue Light Ex eye care, it’s also easy on the eyes while immersing oneself in YouTube videos and Netflix series.
Taking a break from the excitement of gaming, the POCO F5 has users covered with a 64MP main camera setup with numerous functions and filters. As the advanced camera processing system is supported by the Snapdragon® 7+ Gen 2, the camera’s speed on setup and photography is significantly faster. In addition, 4K video shooting benefits from OIS and EIS, which reduce blur caused by moving the phone, and meaningful memories with family, friends, and pets can be captured. For an enhanced user experience, POCO offers a choice of film filters and frames to delight different users’ aesthetics and preferences for capturing amazing shots.
With so many functions and apps to use, excellent battery life is a priority for the POCO F5 too, so its users can say goodbye to battery anxiety. It has a super-fast charging time thanks to its 67W turbocharging, bringing power back up to 100% within 50 minutes.
