Poco C40 is set to be released globally, but the phone has already been revealed in Vietnam. The most interesting thing about the device is its chipset, which comes from a rather unknown Chinese SoC maker called JLQ Technology. With that out of the way, let’s take a look at the Poco C40’s specs, features, and expected price in Nepal.

Poco C40 Overview:

Design and Display

The Poco C40 features a minimal back panel and a camera bump reminiscent of the Poco M3 and M4 Pro. Although there are only two cameras here. The phone weighs 204 grams, and it measures 9.18mm in terms of thickness. Black, yellow, and green are the three available color options.

On the front, you will find a 6.7-inch LCD screen with an HD+ resolution. The screen refreshes at 60Hz and can hit a peak brightness of 400 nits.

Performance

Instead of going the long-established Qualcomm/MediaTek/Unisoc route, Poco has gone for a processor from JLQ Technology. To be more specific, it houses the octa-core JR510 chipset.

Not much is known about the chipset except that it utilizes two quad-core clusters of ARMv8-based cores clocked at 1.5GHz and 2.0GHz, respectively. Although the exact performance is still a mystery, it is said to perform along the line of Snapdragon 450 and Helio G35.

The phone will boot on Android 11 out of the box. However, the listing on the Vietnamese website does not state the MIUI version of the Poco C40. It is likely that the C40 will run on Android Go-based MIUI skin.

Rest of the specs

Moving on, the Poco C40’s 6,000mAh battery is capable of charging at 18W. Despite this, it only ships with a 10W charger inside the box.

In terms of connectivity, it has dual 4G SIM support alongside dual-band Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth 5.0, and Type-C OTG. It also has a 3.5mm headphone jack and supports audio formats like FLAC, MP3, OGG, and MIDI.

Camera

Poco C40 has nothing fancy for the optics as it comes with a dual-camera setup. The primary shooter is a 13MP sensor and is supported by a 2MP depth sensor. The front notch houses a 5MP selfie shooter.
