Up front, there is a 6.52″ IPS LCD display with a waterdrop notch. This HD+ screen supports 400 nits of peak brightness.


Poco C51 is powered by MediaTek Helio G36. This 4G SoC is based on a 12nm fabrication process and features an octa-core CPU with four Cortex-A53 (@2.2 GHz) and four Cortex-A53 (@1.7 GHz). For graphics, there is an integrated PowerVR GE8320 GPU.

Moving on, the chipset is paired with 4GB of LPDDR4X RAM and 64GB of eMMC 5.1 onboard storage. And the RAM is further expandable up to 7GB via virtual RAM and storage via a dedicated SD card slot.

In terms of software, the Poco C51 boots on Android 13 (Go edition) out of the box, unlike the Android 12 Go Edition on the A2+. For starters, the Go Edition OS uses the Lite version of core Google apps such as Maps, Gallery, Google Search, and Assistant for stressing less on the CPU.


Coming to the camera department, there is a dual-rear camera setup on the back. The primary lens is an 8MP shooter accompanied by an unspecified depth sensor. At the front, there is a 5MP camera for selfies under the waterdrop notch. You can shoot up to 1080p @ 30fps videos from both front and rear cameras.
