POCO has started rolling up its sleeves for the new phone. After the leaked POCO M5s device on the past days, now it’s time for the POCO M5 device. POCO M5s appeared as a renamed version of Redmi Note 10S. The POCO M5, on the other hand, might look like the non-5G version of the POCO M4 5G.
POCO M5 Idenfity
POCO M5 first appeared as a budget phone 2 months ago. Model number 22071219CG and short name 22071219CI designated L19C. Codenames are also determined as rock and stone. One of these codenames belongs to the version without NFC and the other to the version with NFC. The main codename is set to “rock“.
The L19C is listed in the IMEI database today as the POCO M5. When we query the IMEI number of 22071219CG, it gives us the “POCO M5” model number. So this device will be sold as the POCO M5.
We predict that the POCO M5 will be available in August when the Xiaomi 12T series is introduced. This device will only be available in Global and India region. POCO M5s is a 4G device and there is no indication that it is 4G or 5G. Based on this, we think that the POCO M5 will be a 4G device. Also, since POCO M5s will be stronger than POCO M5, we can see JLQ or MediaTek Helio G80 series processor in POCO M5.
