According to the smartphone giant, the new POCO C40 will be officially rolled out by June 16th. The most amazing aspect is that the launch event is going to be an online one, featuring global. Therefore, whether you are in Asia, Europe or Africa you will be able to watch the event live.
Earlier Rumored on POCO C40
Recently, the new POCO C40, with the model number C3QP, was discovered on FCC. The smartphone was previously assumed to be a rebranded version of the Redmi 10C (C3Q) due to the model number’s similarity to the Redmi 10C (C3Q). But things aren’t quite as straightforward this time.
In another leak, according to XDA Senior Member kacskrz, the POCO C40 will not use the same Snapdragon 680 chipset as the Redmi 10C, and neither will it adopt anything from MediaTek. Instead, it will be powered by an entry-level chipset called JR510, found in several phones from a lesser-known brand called Treswave. A GeekBench entry for a device codenamed “frost” adds to the evidence.
