Notable tipper Kacper Skrzypek suggests that the Poco X5 5G, which has not yet been released, shares ROM, codenamed “moonstone”, with the global variant of Red Note 12. However, Poco X5 Pro 5G will run on the Snapdragon 695 chipset instead of the Snapdragon 4 Gen 1, the chipset that powers the Redmi Note 12 5G. Since both chipsets are from Qualcomm, it is possible that Xiaomi plans to launch the Redmi Note 12 Speed Edition, which comes with a Snapdragon 695 chipset called Poco X5 5G, Kacper said.
Someone may be confused, so let me be clear: #RedmiK60 = #POCOF5Pro#RedmiNote12Speed = #POCOX5Pro5G… https://t.co/1gXbtNO7dD

In a tweet, Kacper reiterated that Redmi Note 12 Speed will launch as Poco X5 Pro 5G. Meanwhile, Redmi K60 will appear as Poco F5 Pro 5Gsub-brand’s flagship smartphone.
Earlier this year, Poco launched the Redmi K40S as Poco F4 in India and other markets outside of China. Meanwhile, Poco X4 Pro 5G is the renamed rebrand of Redmi Note Pro 5G; however, the two have some design differences.
So far, Poco has not said anything about the launch of the two smartphones. But we can expect both smartphones – Poco F5 Pro 5G and Poco X5 Pro 5G – in the next few months.
