This spirit is best captured by Angus Ng, Head of Product Marketing at POCO Global, “Our POCO M5 and POCO M5s break the stereotype that a value phone can’t support a brilliant gaming or audio-visual experience. 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.”
POCO M5: Game on with a flagship-level 6nm processor and a dynamic display
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 powerful 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 — an unprecedented full system for snappier gaming performance in a value phone. The Game Turbo 5.0 intelligently controls and optimizes the CPU, GPU, and memory to support steady gameplay even in heavy-loading games. The system can judiciously recognize if you are in the middle of a game, and act so that a sudden message will not disconnect you by popping up a sub-window.
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.
Beyond gameplay, POCO M5 is also perfect for those who want to live life to the fullest and capture its most memorable moments.

Whether you want to capture the excitement of sea surfing or take the perfect close-up of street artwork, the POCO M5 will not let you down.
To top it all up, the POCO M5’s high-capacity 5,000mAh battery with 18W fast charging won’t leave you hanging . There’s no need for low-battery anxiety throughout the day, as you play your favorite game on the go while handling all your everyday tasks too.
