POCO has officially announced the POCO C31 in India. The new handset from the brand looks like a tweaked version of POCO C3 launched last year. The only addition the latest model brings is a fingerprint sensor.

POCO C31 is almost the same as the POCO C3. The only major difference between the two is the presence of a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor on the former. Further, the newer handset arrives in two colors (Royal Blue, Shadow Grey) instead of three.

Other than the above-mentioned factors, the POCO C31 is a POCO C3 inside out. Hence, it sports the same 6.53-inch LCD panel with a resolution of 720 x 1600 pixels (HD+), 20:9 aspect ratio, and a dewdrop notch. It is powered by a MediaTek Helio G35 SoC paired with 3GB/4GB LPDDR4x RAM and 32GB/64GB eMMC 5.1 storage.

The device houses a triple camera setup on the back consisting of a 13MP primary sensor, 2MP macro snapper, and 2MP depth sensor. On the front, it nests a 5MP selfie camera inside the notch.
