The Poco C3 has been officially announced, complete with a rear triple camera unit, an HD+ display, a satisfyingly large battery and, most importantly, a super affordable price. Launched in India from the Xiaomi spin-off brand Poco, the C3 is based on the Redmi 9C, which was recently launched in Malaysia. However, the Poco C3 doesn't have the Redmi 9C's fingerprint scanner. 

The Poco C3 will have a 6.53" HD+ display with a 20:9 aspect ratio. It'll also feature a waterdrop notch to house the front-facing camera, which is 5MP with an f/2.2 aperture.

Meanwhile, on the back of the phone there's a rear triple camera unit complete with a 13MP main camera, a 2MP macro camera and a 2MP depth sensor. The Poco C3 is powered by a Helio G35 chipset and comes in two storage options – 3GB of RAM & 32GB of storage and 4GB of RAM & 64GB of storage. It also has an impressive 5,000mAh battery and features 10W fast charging, which should ensure users have plenty of power at hand.

The Poco C3 comes with a two-tone pattern on the back of the phone to help ensure better grip. It's also available in three different colors – Arctic blue, Lime green and Matte black. 

Most impressively, the Poco C3 comes at an amazingly affordable price. The lower storage 3/32GB option is just INR 7,499 ($102) and the 4/64GB option is INR 8,999 ($122).
