POCO has launched the POCO C3 smartphone in India. According to recent reports, the phone has arrived as a rebranded version of the Redmi 9C with some aesthetic changes.

The polycarbonate-bodied POCO C3 comes with a P2i nano-coating for splash-resistance. The smartphone flaunts an IPS LCD screen of 6.53 inches that produces an HD+ resolution of 720 x 1600 pixels and an aspect ratio of 20:9. The TUV Rheinland certified screen can effectively filter the harmful blue rays.

The POCO has a front-facing camera of 5-megapixel. The backside of the phone has a square-shaped camera module that is equipped with a 13-megapixel main lens with f/2.2 aperture, a 2-megapixel depth sensor with f/2.4 aperture, a 2-megapixel depth assist lens with f/2.4 aperture, and an LED flash.

The MediaTek Helio G35 chipset drives the smartphone with 3 GB / 4 GB of LPPDR4x RAM. The phone comes in 32 GB and 64 GB storage choices and it has a dedicated slot for adding a microSD card. Like the other recently released POCO phones, this one also ships with POCO Launcher and MIUI 12 based Android 10 OS.

The POCO C3 is backed by a massive battery of 5,000mAh. Unfortunately, the phone comes with support for 10W charging only. The POCO C3 does not have a fingerprint reader, while the Redmi 9C features it on its back.
