POCO introduced two new smartphones that aim to offer all-around entertainment experience: POCO M5 and POCO M5s.
“Our POCO M5 and POCO M5s break the stereotype that a value phone can’t support a brilliant gaming or audio-visual experience,” said Angus Ng, head of Product Marketing at POCO Global. “It is a true testament to our team’s unwavering efforts to deliver the most exciting creations for tech enthusiasts at industry-leading price levels.”
Powered by the advanced MediaTek Helio G99 chipset, the POCO M5 offers an incredibly smooth gaming experience. Built on a flagship-level 6nm manufacturing process, the chipset includes an octa-core CPU, with two high-performance Cortex-A76 clocking up to 2.2GHz, along with an Arm Mali G57 GPU for advanced 3D graphics. The Game Turbo 5.0 intelligently controls and optimizes the CPU, GPU, and memory to support steady gameplay even in heavy-loading games.
Coming with a 90Hz DynamicSwitch display, the POCO M5 can dynamically switch the display refresh rate. When playing games, it adapts to a very fast refresh rate for high-frame gaming titles, while it can switch to slow down for video playback. This saves power as well as ensures sustained and longer gameplay with maximized battery life.
With a 6.58-inch Full HD+ DotDrop display, the POCO M5 delivers vibrant color accuracy and crisp graphics. Along with its 240Hz touch sampling rate, the POCO M5 speeds up the overall experience and helps significantly in fast-paced games with quicker touch response. The POCO M5 also comes with practical features like Sunlight display, which allows you to carry on outdoors, and enjoy your game comfortably in the park or by the pool.
POCO M5 will come in three colors: Black, Green, and Yellow. In the Philippines, it will also be available in two variants: 4GB+64GB and 6GB+128GB.
4GB+64GB: Recommended retail price at P9,499 via official e-commerce channels.
6GB+128GB: Recommended retail price at P10,499 via official e-commerce channels.
POCO M5 will be available for purchase at an early bird price of P7,399 and P8,799 respectively from Sept. 7 via Lazada.
When it comes to capturing photo and video content, the POCO M5s’ quad rear camera system can record 4K videos at 30 frames per second, for catching unexpected street sports moments. It includes a 64MP primary camera, and an 8MP ultra-wide angle camera to capture beautiful city skyline shots, or mountain scenery if you enjoy nature. It also has two 2MP sensors for depth detection or taking detailed close-ups of watercolor to embrace your inner artist. A 13MP front camera tops it all up for great selfies and sharp video chat quality with friends and family.
POCO M5s come with a 6.43-inch Full HD+ AMOLED DotDisplay to watch sports, show videos to friends, or play music. Paired with dual speakers, it was engineered to provide a fully immersive audio-visual experience, amping up the fun of playing your favorite artist’s new music video release or getting lost in a cyberpunk sci-fi movie. It packs premium features to enhance user comfort, like DC Dimming and 360° ambient light sensors to adjust the screen brightness so you can enjoy an entire live stream without eye strain.
Equipped with a MediaTek Helio G95 chipset, the POCO M5s has all the power you need to bring you the magic fun in the audio-visual world. The pairing of smooth graphics performance and efficiency enables immersive augmented reality, brilliant camera shooting, and seamless streaming experiences. It also sports a high-capacity 5,000mAh battery, providing up to 12 hours of uninterrupted immersive fun, or one and a half days of non-stop voice calls.
