Poco appears to be prepping up to launch a new handset under the C-series – the Poco C40. A couple of days back, the Poco C40 with the model number 220333QPG was spotted on the NBTC certification website. The upcoming handset has also been spotted on the FCC certification website. Poco is yet to launch the device but the brand has already announced the MIUI Global Stable ROM testing program for the handset.
In a post on the Poco Community forum, Poco Global invited applications for Poco C40 MIUI Global Stable ROM testing. Alongside this device, the brand also revealed the existence of another C-series device – the Poco C40+. Poco Global is looking for ROM testers in the Indonesia region which means that the device could go official soon in Indonesia. Let us take a closer look at what we know about the Poco C40 and the + variant so far.
Poco C40 and Poco C40+ What We Know So Far
The Poco Community Forum post mentions these devices together, this means that both these devices will run the same firmware due to the similarity in the hardware. This leads us to believe that the Poco C40 and Poco C40+ might differ from each other in storage and memory departments. We have already seen Xiaomi doing the same with the Redmi 9A and the Redmi 9i in the past.
The Poco C40 has model number 220333Q which also happens to be the model number for the Redmi 10C (known as Redmi 10 in India). Based on this, it appears that the Poco C40 and the Poco C40+ might be a rebadged Redmi 10C. If that happens, the Poco C40 and the Poco C40+ will feature a 6.7-inch IPS LCD display with HD+ resolution, 400nits brightness, and a waterdrop notch.
To those unaware, the Redmi 10C is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 680 processor. However, a recent finding by Kacper Skrzypek revealed that the upcoming Poco C40 will make use of an entry-level chipset – JR510.
The FCC listing had revealed that the device will boot MIUI 13, but as per Kacper’s claim, the handset will boot MIUI Go Edition. FCC listing has already confirmed that the upcoming Poco handset will support 10W charging. Apart from it, the certification listing also revealed that the device will support 2.4GHz and 5GHz WiFi. The handset measures 167.18 x 76.87mm in terms of length and width as per the listing.
That’s all that is known about the upcoming Poco handset. However, we can expect the device to pop up on other certification websites in the coming weeks.
