The "flagship-killer" Poco F5 is seeking to launch in India soon.

The Poco F-series has gained immense popularity in the smartphone market, largely thanks to the success of the Pocophone F1. However, in recent times, Poco has mainly relied on rebranding existing Xiaomi or Redmi phones. Despite this, the brand remains a popular choice for international users who are unable to access certain phones otherwise.

Meanwhile, Poco has launched its X5 series in India and is now preparing to release its highly anticipated Poco F5 smartphone in the same market. The new device is expected to follow in the footsteps of its well-received predecessor, the Poco F4. Although no official announcement has been made yet, a recent report suggests that the Poco F5 is set to debut in India during the first week of April.
