It is rumored that Poco will launch a new C-series smartphone soon. The company launched the C31 last year in India with some improvements over the previous model. Then, the Xiaomi spin-off smartphone brand is expected to announce the Poco C40 soon.

Currently, there is no word from the company regarding the launch of the C40. It is preparing to launch the Poco F4 GT, which will debut on April 26. While we await more details about the launch, a new leak has revealed some key information about the C40. Let’s take a look at the Poco C40 specifications, features, and other details that have been leaked so far.

Poco C40 specifications are upside down

Poco C40 is expected to launch soon. According to reports, the entry-level smartphone will not feature Qualcomm or MediaTek chipsets. An XDA report claims that the budget smartphone will instead use an entry-level chipset called JR510. The chipset is said to be present in many smartphones from the not-so-famous company Treswave.

In addition, the report states that the C40 may feature a special version of MIUI called MIUI Go. It can be based on Android Go Edition, which offers a light version of the operating system for entry-level smartphones. A flag called IS_MIUI_GO_VERSION has recently been added to the MIUI firmware. The report states that the flag appears alongside the existing IS_MIUI_LITE_VERSION flag, which Xiaomi uses to limit/disable features like floating windows and Game Turbo mode on low-powered devices with less than 4GB of RAM.

It was previously rumored that the phone would be a rebranded version of the Redmi 10C, which was launched in India as the Redmi 10. The device came with a Snapdragon 680 SoC, a 6.7-inch HD+ display and a 6,000mAh battery. It has a 50MP triple camera setup along with a 2MP depth camera and a 2MP macro camera.
