Smartphone brand Poco is set to expand its product portfolio in India with the launch of a new affordable C-series phone. The company took to social media platform X (formerly Twitter) to announce the launch of the Poco C65 smartphone. The upcoming smartphone which Poco is promoting as “The Big Deal,” will launch in India on December 15 at 12 noon. This smartphone is said to be the rebranded version of the Redmi 13C. Xiaomi’s sub-brand Redmi launched this phone in India last week.
The Poco C65 is already available in the global markets as the smartphone that comes with the MediaTek Helio G85 chipset and a 50MP AI camera. However, the company hasn’t confirmed if the Indian variant will carry similar specs. This model is expected to be the first 8GB RAM smartphone which may come paired with 256GB storage. The upcoming Poco C65 will succeed the Poco C55 smartphone which was launched in February.
Just like any other Poco smartphones, the upcoming smartphone is also expected to be a Flipkart exclusive. In the X post, the company has also shared a teaser poster of the Poco C65 which reveals its design. Poco has teased the smartphone in Purple colour. Globally, two more colour variants are available for this phone — Black and Blue. The design of the Indian model also looks very similar to the global variant.
Poco C65: Expected price and specs
The Poco C65 smartphone is likely to be priced under Rs 12,000 and may sport a 90Hz 6.74-inch HD+ display. The smartphone may come powered by the MediaTek Helio G85 mobile platform backed with an ARM Mali-G52 MC2 GPU, up to 8GB RAM and 256GB storage.
For camera, the Poco C65 may house a 50MP primary sensor and 2MP macro lens. The smartphone may also feature an 8MP front camera placed in a centre-aligned water drop notch for selfies and video calls.
Poco C65 may also pack a 5,000mAh battery that is likely to support 18W fast charging. The smartphone is also expected to run Android 13-based MIUI 14 for Poco out-of-the-box.
