The new Poco handset will even have to compete against the brand’s own 5G offering, the Poco M4 5G, which is available for under Rs. 11,000 in the country.
It all depends on what price Poco will be releasing the M5 4G in India. Guess we will have to wait and watch what the company brings to the table with the new Poco phone. The brand is also expected to launch a 5G version of the Poco M5 in the near future, but details about the device are scarce.
