It is being said that the Poco C3 will be the company’s budget offering, which will lie below its X series and M series in India. According to an earlier report by LeakerBaba the device retail box will have a written price of 10,990 for the 4GB RAM/64GB storage variant. It is expected to launch at a price lower than the one written on box. The retail box image consisted of the model number M2006C3MI, which is the same model number spotted earlier on Bluetooth SIG’s website as a part of a list of Redmi 9 series.
The Redmi 9C international variant sports a model number M2006C3MG, which is quite similar to the Poco C3. This might mean that the Poco C3 may be a rebranded Redmi 9C for the Indian market.
To recall, Redmi 9C was originally launched in Malaysia and has already been launched in India as the Redmi 9 with minor tweaks.
