Relatives. I have them for you. The Poco X5 Pro is a copy of Redmi Note 12 Pro 极速版 (aka Redmi Note 12 Pro Speed ​​Edition) sold in China. Color sets, however, are slightly different. But the specifications of the brothers are almost identical. Only the sets of supported frequencies are different.

Chipset. B�Other Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G. We are waiting for 500-550 thousand parrots in AnTuTu.

Memory is fine. 6 or 8 GB of RAM, 128 or 256 GB of permanent memory. However, there is no support for memory cards...
