Xiaomi’s spin-off brand POCO might be a new entrant in the Nepal market but it has gained quite a reputation in the past few years courtesy of its decent priced capable smartphones. POCO entered Nepal’s tech hub with its mid-range handset POCO F1 and the company has now released yet another smartphone, the POCO C3.
Specs-wise, the POCO C3 looks good on paper with a tall display, decent storage, and battery backup. Here’s an overview of the new Poco smartphone.
POCO C3 Specifications and Features
POCO C3 is a game-centric smartphone that comes with MediaTek’s Helio G35 a chipset designed specifically for affordable smartphones. The phone promises lag-free performance with Hyperengine Technology support.
To leverage the experience, the phone offers a tall 6.53-inch HD+ display with minimal bezels surrounding the front panel and a dewdrop notch holding the selfie camera. The display has an aspect ratio of 20:9 and is certified by TUV Rheinland. POCO C3 is P2i (nano-coating) splash resistant.
For photography, the POCO C3 provides a triple camera lens which is attached to a square camera module. The camera software includes auto HDR and AI-scene detection to offer color vibrancy.
Unlike many entry-level smartphones, the POCO C3 doesn’t come with a fingerprint sensor, however, you will get 2D face recognition for quick unlock. In terms of software, the device runs Android 10-based MIUI 12 with the standard POCO launcher on top.
A headlining feature of the POCO C3’s interface is that it doesn’t have ads on its UI. Another USP of the phone is its huge 5,000mAh battery.
Speaking of storage, although POCO launched two variants of the POCO C3 in India, it has only brought the high-end variant in Nepal. The phone has expandable storage support of up to 512GB.
