Yesterday, we reported the launch date and few of the speculated specs of the upcoming POCO C3 smartphone.
Now, the device has dropped the upcoming status as it launched today in India. As previous reports suggested, the phone did arrive in India as a rebranded model of the Redmi 9C smartphone.
The POCO C3’s frame is manufactured from a polycarbonate material, and it features P2i nano-coating which makes it splash resistant.
It sports a 6.53-inch IPS LCD panel. The display offers the user with a 20:9 aspect ratio and an HD+ resolution of 720 x 1600 pixels.
The selfie snapper is an 8-megapixel sensor, which is present in the on-screen notch.
On the rear side, the POCO C3 packs a triple camera setup housed in a square-shaped module. It consists of a 13-megapixel primary camera, a 2-megapixel depth assist lens, a 2-megapixel depth sensor, and an LED flash.
On the inside, the MediaTek powered Helio G35 chipset fuels the smartphone. It features 3GB / 4GB of LPDDR4x RAM and 32GB / 64GB of internal storage.
Based on the Android 10 OS, the POCO C3 boots to the POCO Launcher and the MIUI 12.
It houses a massive 5,000mAh battery, which sadly, has support for only 10W charging.
The POCO C3 ship out with the usual connectivity options such as dual SIM slot, 4G VoLTE, GPS, Bluetooth 5.0, Wi-Fi, MicroUSB port, and a 3.5mm headphone jack.
Also, the smartphone arrives with a dedicated MicroSD card slot, which offers the user with storage expansion feature.
However, unlike the Redmi 9C, the POCO C3 doesn’t feature a rear-fitted fingerprint reader.
The POCO C3 will be available for purchase in India through Flipkart starting from October 16. It will be available in lime green, arctic blue, and matte black colour options.
The 3GB RAM + 32GB storage model costs Rs 7,499 (~$102) and the 4GB RAM + 64GB storage model carries a price tag of Rs 8,999 (~$125).
