The Poco X5 series, which is expected to offer vanilla and Pro models, has been previously spotted on various certification websites, including the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) database, confirming its imminent release in India. The Poco X5 Pro 5G is expected to launch as a rebadged Redmi Note 12 Speed Edition, and if so, it would have similar specs.
