Poco C50 announced in India with 5,000 mAh battery, Android 12 Go Edition
The Poco C50 has just been made official in India and it will go on sale on January 10 in Royal Blue and Country Green. Previously announced as the Redmi A1+, the Poco C50 is built around a 6.52-inch IPS LCD display with a resolution of 720 x 1600 pixels, refreshing at a standard frequency of 60Hz.
The Poco C50 runs Android 12 (Go Edition) with a layer of MIUI for POCO on top. It uses a 12nm MediaTek Helio A22 chipset with 2GB or 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage expandable via the microSD card slot.
The Poco C50 promises great endurance thanks to a 5,000mAh battery, although it charges quite slowly at 10W.
There are two cameras on the back, one is a depth sensor, while the other is an 8MP f/2.0 wide camera. There is also a fingerprint scanner on this side. On the front, there is a 5MP selfie camera.
The Poco C50 features a leather-like texture on the rear panel. The phone is splash resistant thanks to a special coating.
A few models are live on Flipkart – the 2/32GB one nominally costs INR 6,499 but will launch at a special launch price of INR 6,249, and a 3/32GB version which is INR 7,299 but will launch at INR 6,999. The first sale takes place on January 10.
