The Poco C40 is a new entry-level smartphone from Chinese manufacturer Xiaomi. It features a large battery and an ARM processor by a relatively unknown manufacturer. For the first time, the Xiaomi Poco C40 features a chip made by JLQ (a Chinese joint venture with American chip giant Qualcomm). The SoC uses eight cores based upon ARM Cortex-A55 and can reach a maximum speed of 2.0 gigahertz. It does not require a 5G modem. The JLQ JR510 chip should perform as well as the Snapdragon 450 on the lower end.
The Poco C40 is a basic, standard-issue smartphone that features a 6.71-inch LCD screen with 720p resolution. It also has a teardrop-shaped notch at its top. A simple 5-megapixel camera is inside. A 13-megapixel camera is located on the back. It is accompanied by an insignificant 2-megapixel sensor to create depth effects. The Poco C40 is equipped with 3 or 4 gigabytes RAM and 32 or 64 gigabytes expandable internal memory. Built-in battery of 6000 mAh should give you huge runtimes.
The Poco C40 can be charged quickly with an 18-watt power source, but Xiaomi supplies only a 10-watt power supply due to cost. Only Android 11 with a modified version of MIUI 13 is an operating system that can be run on the Poco C40. The only operating system that runs on the Poco C40 is Android 11 in combination with a modified version of MIUI 13. Xiaomi has yet to comment on the Poco C40’s prices, however they should eventually drop below 150 Euros.
