POCO, a couple of weeks ago, launched the entry-level POCO C50 smartphone in the Indian market. As per famous tipster Kacper Skrzypek, the company will soon debut another smartphone under the C-series – the POCO C55. In the latest development, the upcoming POCO C55 with model number 22127PC95G has been spotted on IMDA certification. This is the global variant of the smartphone so it is not clear if the POCO C55 will make it to Indian market as well.
The IMDA certification listing for the POCO C55 reveals that the smartphone will feature Bluetooth and WiFi support but that’s the case with every smartphone, so in all, the certification listing does not reveal anything about the POCO C55. Let us take a closer look at the details.
