Poco C3 will feature a triple rear camera setup headlined by a 13-megapixel primary shooter, the Xiaomi spin-off brand has revealed through a tweet. The short video shared by Poco India on Twitter shows the camera details of the Poco C3 that is set to launch in India on October 6 at 12pm (noon). The phone is rumoured to be a rebranded Redmi 9C that was launched in Malaysia back in June and with the camera specifications for the Poco C3 revealed, the rumour seems to have gotten more weight. Further, the Flipkart page for the phone says it will come with up to 4GB of RAM.
Poco India took to Twitter to share a short 20-second video showing the triple rear camera setup on the Poco C3. The main shooter is a 13-megapixel camera sensor that is accompanied by a macro shooter and a depth sensor. The three cameras on the back are arranged in a square module that also houses the flash. The design of the rear camera module is the same as the Redmi 9C. Even the configuration is the same with the Redmi 9C featuring a 13-megapixel main camera, a 2-megapixel macro sensor, and a 2-megapixel depth sensor. However, the exact specifications for the other two sensors on the Poco C3 have not been revealed.
The Poco C3 will be launched in India on October 6 at 12pm (noon) and will go on sale via Flipkart. The company has not shared pricing for the phone but a recent leak suggests that its 4GB + 64GB storage variant will be priced at Rs. 10,990. As per the Flipkart page, the Poco C3 will have up to 4GB of RAM.
