Mid-range with AMOLED
Samsung’s AMOLED screen technology has been a staple of high-end smartphones for many years. However, this technology has traditionally been exclusive only to high-end flagships due to the high cost of it. The AMOLED screen technology offers a range of benefits over traditional LCD screens, including better contrast, a wider color gamut, and a faster response time.
With the integration of the latest Samsung AMOLED screen technology, the POCO X5 5G elevates the mid-range smartphone game to a whole new level. Experience unparalleled display quality as every color, detail, and contrast come to life with stunning clarity and vividness. Say goodbye to dull and bland displays and hello to a true visual feast with the POCO X5 5G.
120Hz Display and Snapdragon 695 Chip
And since POCO X5 5G boasts a 120Hz AMOLED display, meaning a more responsive experience. It is a big leap from an LCD screen that provides a high-speed response to applications from apps and games. But, having a 120Hz display is not enough. It requires top-notch hardware to perform well especially on high-demanding games and fully utilize the upgrade.
Well, the POCO X5 5G is equipped with the Snapdragon 695 chip, an 8-core processor that has the latest Qualcomm Adreno 619 GPU at 6nm. This processor can run high-demanding games at high FPS, with Free Fire reaching 59-60 FPS and even lighter games exceeding that. It is also beneficial to video content that runs at higher resolution such as 4K video. Its impressive AnTuTu score of 400,000 places it above most of the Snapdragon 700 series chips and makes it the top-performing phone in the Snapdragon 600 series.
To ensure a seamless experience on the high-speed 120Hz AMOLED display, the POCO X5 5G is equipped with memory expansion 3.0 technology that boosts the original onboard 6/8GB RAM to 11/13GB. This allows for smooth multi-tasking, even with multiple apps open at once, reducing or completely eliminating any stuttering or lag. The large 128/256GB ROM also provides ample storage space for downloading content and apps.
More than Display
In terms of battery, the AMOLED screen in the POCO X5 5G is lighter and thinner than traditional LCD screens. The screen utilizes an individual pixel-based design, so it doesn’t require a backlight. This results in a significant boost in battery life, as each pixel can be adjusted to its own brightness level, and even turned off completely when not in use.
Despite its impressive specs, the POCO X5 5G is still affordable compared to other phones with similar configurations, it costs around US$300 or less – becoming one of the cheapest 120Hz AMOLED screen phones in the market.
