Poco will launch the Poco C3 budget smartphone in India today. The phone will be sold via Flipkart, and will come with a 5,000mAh battery, along with a waterdrop notch display with an HD+ resolution. The Poco C3 will also come with up to 4GB of RAM and have a triple rear camera setup. The smartphone will be launched at 12PM (noon) today, and can be streamed live on Poco’s official YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram pages. Apart from that, the event will also be streamed live on Poco’s partner platforms - Loco TV, Rheo TV, GamingMonk, and EWar.
While it is not known how much the Poco C3 will cost, it is being touted as a budget offering from the Xiaomi sub-brand. Some reports even say that it will be a rebranded version of the Redmi 9C, which was launched in Malaysia earlier this year. Recent reports have claimed to have spotted the Poco C3 retail box, which shows the price as Rs. 10,990. The exact specifications of the Poco C3 are not known yet, but if it actually is a rebranded version of the Redmi 9C, the phone will be powered by a MediaTek Helio G35 processor, paired with up to 4GB of RAM and a triple camera setup. The Redmi 9C was launched at a starting price of MYR 429 in Malaysia (Rs. 7,600 by direct conversion).
