Poco is all set for India launch of its latest budget smartphone, Poco C3, on Tuesday. The launch event will begin at 12 pm (noon) and will be live streamed via the Loco game streaming app, Rheo TV, Gaming Monk, YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

The company ahead of the launch has disclosed key features of the upcoming phone via official teasers posted on its social media platforms and had also revealed in a tweet that Poco C3 will be priced under Rs 10,000 in India. However, they're yet to announce the exact price of the smartphone.

Reports suggest that the Poco C3 will be a rebranded Redmi 9C, which was launched in Malaysia earlier this year. The Redmi 9C was recently launched as a rebranded Redmi 9 in India. As per teasers, the Poco C3 will go on sale on Flipkart, and will be available in a Blue finish. Although, more colour options may be introduced at launch.

The Poco C3 is teased to feature an HD+ display with a waterdrop-style notch. It is said to offer up to 4GB of RAM and sport a triple rear camera setup with a 13-megapixel primary camera and another macro lens. The Flipkart teaser page also confirms a 5,000mAh battery.

If the Poco C3 is the rebranded version of the Redmi 9C, then the phone may feature a 6.53-inch HD+ (720x1,600 pixels) LCD display and may be powered by the octa-core MediaTek Helio G35 SoC. The onboard storage should be expandable via a microSD card (up to 512GB). The phone should also have a rear fingerprint sensor.

However, if it is a rebranded Redmi 9C, the Poco C3 would support 10W fast charging with connectivity options such as a 3.5mm audio jack, 4G LTE, Wi-Fi, and Micro-USB port.
