Poco is gearing up for the launch of a new smartphone in India. The company has teased the launch of the next C-series smartphone in India. For the uninitiated, Poco’s C-series is for its entry-level smartphones that are typically priced under Rs 10,000. The company is likely to unveil the C3 successor, which could be called the Poco C4. That being said, the company, like many other China-headquartered smartphone companies could launch the device as the C5, mainly due to the superstition around the number 4 in China.
Poco C4 launch in India teased?
Poco India’s latest tweet confirms that the device will debut on September 30 in India. The teaser image does not reveal any details or even the name, for that matter, of the upcoming Poco smartphone. We suspect that this device could be the new Poco C4/ C5. The currently available Poco C3 was launched in October 2020 and is due for a refresh.
There is no word on the specifications and features of the upcoming Poco C-series smartphone. We will share more details about the device as and when some information is available.
Regarding the C3, the device is currently available on Flipkart at a starting price of Rs 7,349. It comes with 3GB of RAM. There is also a 4GB variant priced at Rs 8,349. The phone sports a 6.53-inch HD+ IPS LCD with a water-drop notch on top for the front camera. It is powered by a MediaTek G35 SoC, an entry-level gaming chipset. The phone packs a 5,000 mAh battery and comes with 10W charging support via a micro-USB port.
On the back, the device has a triple-camera setup. It gets a 13MP primary sensor, coupled with a 2 MP depth sensor, and a 2 MP macro camera. For selfies, the phone has a 5MP front camera. The device boots Android 10-based MIUI 12 out of the box.
