The Poco M5 and Poco M5s will be announced on September 5, the Xiaomi brand revealed earlier this month. And six days before the phones arrive, the M5s appeared in an unboxing video on YouTube.
The reviewer goes through all major specs and features and while claiming he doesn’t know more details, he did reveal enough for us to realize it is actually a rebranded Redmi Note 10S.
The device is also known as Redmi Note 11 SE in India, down to the Helio G95 chipset, AMOLED screen and the quad-cam setup on the back.
The Poco M5s has one major difference from its Redmi-named twins – it comes with the latest MIUI 13 on top of Android 12 out of the box. One version will have 6GB RAM and 128GB storage, and the YouTuber has acquired a Blue color variant.
He did not reveal any more details but if the phone is indeed the same as the Redmis we can look forward to a 64 MP main camera, a 5,000 mAh battery with 33W fast charging and a price of around $160 to $175.
