Poco C40 to Ditch Qualcomm, MediaTek Chip; Might Launch with MIUI GO Edition

Let’s take a look at the Poco C40 specifications, features and other details leaked so far.


Poco is rumoured to launch a new C-series smartphone soon. The company launched the C31 last year in India with some improvements over the outgoing model. Next, the Xiaomi spin-off smartphone brand is expected to announce the Poco C40 very soon.

Currently, there is no word from the company regarding the launch of the C40. It is preparing for the launch of the Poco F4 GT, which will debut on April 26. While we wait for some more details about the launch, a new leak has revealed some key information about the C40. Let’s take a look at the Poco C40 specifications, features and other details leaked so far.

Poco C40 Specifications Tipped

Poco is expected to launch the C40 soon. The entry-level smartphone will not feature a Qualcomm or a MediaTek chipset, according to reports. An XDA report claims that the budget smartphone will instead use an entry-level chipset called JR510. The chipset is said to be found in several smartphones from a not-so-popular company Treswave. 

In addition to this, the report states that the C40 might feature a special version of MIUI called MIUI Go. It could be based on Android Go Edition, which offers a Lite version of the operating system for entry-level smartphones. A flag called IS_MIUI_GO_VERSION was recently added to MIUI firmware. The report states that the flag appears alongside the existing IS_MIUI_LITE_VERSION flag, which Xiaomi uses to limit/disable features like floating windows and Game Turbo mode on lowered-powered devices with less than 4GB of RAM. 

It was previously rumoured that the phone will be a rebadged version of the Redmi 10C, which was launched in India as the Redmi 10. The device came with a Snapdragon 680 SoC, a 6.7-inch HD+ display and up to 6000 mAh battery. It has a 50MP triple-camera setup with a 2MP depth camera and a 2MP macro camera.
