Other than a higher RAM option, the Poco C3 is entirely identical to the Redmi 9C. The display is a 6.53-inch HD+ LCD panel with a waterdrop notch for the front camera. It has a two-tone design on the back to minimize fingerprints while keeping its style. The primary camera is a triple-lens setup in a square-shaped cutout.

This camera setup includes a 13MP main sensor, a 2MP macro camera for closeup photography, and a 2MP depth sensor for the AI background blur effect.

Internal specifications include the entry-level MediaTek Helio P35 SoC that is paired with a 3GB/32GB memory option as well as the 4GB/64GB configuration. The 4GB ram option is not available on its equivalent, the Redmi 9C. An SD card slot for storage expansion is available on both devices.

The device packs a 5,000 mAh battery, but there is no fast charging available. The Poco C3 will go for sale on October 16 with a starting price of $102. It will be available in Arctic Blue, Lime Green, and Matte Black colors.
