The Poco F5 and F5 Pro are now fully official and going on sale globally. The pair made more than a few rounds on the Internet already and we have a great overall picture of their specs.
The Poco F5 Pro brings a 6.67-inch 3200x1440px 120Hz AMOLED display with 1400 nits of peak brightness, and up to 480Hz of touch sampling.
There's a triple camera on the back of the F5 Pro - a 64MP f/1.8 main shooter with 1.4μm pixels, an 8MP f/2.2 fixed-focus ultrawide shooter, and a 2MP f/2.4 macro cam. There's a 16MP f/2.45 selfie shooter on the opposite side.
The Poco F5 has a 5,160mAh battery with both 67W wired and 30W wireless charging. The 67W brick comes in the box.

There's a slightly smaller 5,000mAh battery without wireless charging, but the same 67W wired speed. The fast charger is also in the box.
The Snapdragon 7+ Gen 2 is the chip of choice and it's mated to 8GB or 12GB of expandable RAM.
