POCO is preparing to present a new smartphone for the POCO C series in India. The company has already introduced a bunch of POCO M series smartphones and introduced the POCO X4 Pro. Now, it’s time for the Indian market to get a new device – the POCO C40. The device has recently been rumored and now there is more information about its release. A POCO smartphone, believed to be the POCO C40, went through the FCC certification site last month with model number 220333QPG. Now, the same device has moved to the NBTC database. The NBTC database serves to confirm that the phone will be released as the POCO C40 in global markets. Interestingly, there is also a POCO 220333QPI which becomes the Indian variant. This particular model has passed the certification of the Bureau of Indian Standards implying an upcoming release.

Assumed POCO C40 specifications

The POCO C40 will be a super-budget smartphone with a very basic processor – the JR510. You have probably never heard of this particular chipset. It’s a low-end processor made by Wansheng Technology – or JQL Technology. It has appeared on many smartphones from a little known brand Treswave. Surprisingly, this is the first 4G 11 nm FinFET smartphone chip made by Wansheng technology. It’s a really weird choice for Xiaomi. The company did not even choose Unisoc, a name that is being developed in the lower echelon. Perhaps, the price of this chipset is the main reason behind the choice of the company.

The device was rumored to be a renamed Redmi 10C, however, the hardware is miles away.

The material is not impressive, the POCO C40 achieved 155 mononuclear and 749 multicore points at Geekbench. According to the listing, the phone has Octa-Core architecture. There are 4 cores operating at 1.50 GHz and more 4 cores operating at 2 GHz. These cores are based on the ARMv8 architecture, but it is not clear whether they are Cortex-A53 or Cortex-A55 cores. The phone will run the MIUI GO Edition, for obvious reasons, and it seems to be the company’s way of promoting lightweight software in the country. Unfortunately, we do not know if it will be based on Android 11 or Android 12.

The phone will support dual band Wi-Fi and will only charge 10 W. We would not be surprised if we saw a micro USB port on this phone. Obviously, the device will have dimensions of 167.18 x 76.85 mm in length and width.

We are really curious to see if this phone will be successful in India. After all, the specifications sound really innocent. Of course, everything depends on the price. For the right price, the device can be attractive to less demanding users.
