- A new Poco series phone, called the Poco C3, has surfaced online.
- The phone appears to be a rebranded Redmi 9C.
- This would be the latest example of Poco rebranding Redmi phones.
Now, a brand-new Poco phone, dubbed the Poco C3, has appeared on the Bluetooth SIG website. Or rather, it looks like another rebranded Redmi phone instead of a brand-new design. Check out the listing below.
More specifically, the Poco C3â€™s model number (M2006C3MI) seems to line up with the Redmi 9Câ€™s number included in the filing (M2006C3MG). Xiaomi tends to change the last letter in a model number to reflect the phoneâ€™s region, so â€œIâ€� refers to India and â€œGâ€� refers to â€œglobalâ€� markets.
In other words, it looks like the Poco C3 is bound for India â€” the Redmi 9C already launched in markets like Europe and Malaysia.
The Redmi 9C serves up a lightweight Helio G35 processor, a 13MP triple camera setup, and a 5,000mAh battery. It retails for â‚¬119 (~$136) in Europe, but history shows us that we can expect a slightly lower price in India.
