POCO is the third smartphone brand of Xiaomi. Like Redmi, it doesn’t spend money on R&D, which allows the company to make phones at lower prices. We mean the whole job is done by Xiaomi. So Redmi and Poco can use the achievements of their parent company without spending a penny. There was a time when we thought that POCO would withdraw from the market. But it’s here, and it still designs and launches new models. Today, MySmartPrice reported that the POCO X4 follow-up model would hit the market soon. We are talking about the POCO X5 5G, certified by BIS and FCC.
