POCO has officially announced a new entry-level smartphone dubbed as the POCO C50 in the global market. Despite being launched under POCO’s branding, this device is essentially the model as the Redmi A1+ smartphone that was launched back in September last year.
Right off the bat, the new POCO C50 builds around a 6.52” IPS LCD display featuring a HD+ screen resolution, 60Hz refresh rate as well as a 5 megapixels front-facing camera for selfies and video calls.
Over on the rear side, the phone features a dual-cam setup that sits inside a square-shaped camera module. These cameras include an 8 megapixels main camera and a 0.3 megapixels auxiliary camera. Other than that, there’s also a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner.
Under the hood, the POCO C50 is powered by a quad-core MediaTek Helio A22 chipset which will be paired with up to 3GB RAM and 32GB onboard storage which supports further expansion via a microSD card.
Keeping it’s lights on is none other than a respectable 5,000mAh battery with 10W wired charging support. As usual, the phone will be shipped with Android 12 OS (Go Edition) right off the box.
Those who’re interested can pick the device from two different colors such as Royal Blue and Country Green. Pricing for the POCO C50 starts from just INR6,499 ($78) for the 2GB+32GB model and goes up to INR7,299 ($88) for the higher-end model with 3GB+32GB configuration.
