In August, POCO unveiled the POCO X3 NFC smartphone in the global markets and the same phone arrived as POCO X3 in India. The Indian edition arrived with a few changes such as a big battery and lack of support for NFC connectivity. Today, the company confirmed that it will be launching the POCO C3 smartphone on Oct. 6 in India. Past reports have suggested that it could be the most affordable smartphone from the brand.
