Poco C3 Crosses 2 Million Units Sold in India in Nine Months, Company Claims

  • Poco began its journey in 2018 as a sub-brand of Xiaomi

Poco C3 has crossed the two-million sales mark in India, the company said in a tweet citing its internal data. Poco had introduced the phone in India in October last year. The budget handset crossed the two-million sales milestone within nine months of launch, according to the company. It had earlier posted about crossing the one-million sales mark in a little over three months after its launch. Poco C3 is powered by the MediaTek Helio G35 SoC, has triple rear cameras, and features a waterdrop-style notch display.

The Poco C3 two-million sales mark was announced via Twitter. Separately, the Poco Global Twitter account announced that the total shipments of Poco-branded smartphones reached 20 million units.

Poco was launched in 2018 as a sub-brand of Xiaomi and was announced as an independent brand in India in early 2020. In November last year, it became an independent identity globally, 10 months after its Indian subsidiary got separated from Xiaomi. The brand initially gained popularity among young smartphone customers, thanks to the success of the Poco F1 that debuted as the first phone under the Poco label.
