The Poco C series in India is expected to add a new model on September 30 as the brand posted a teaser image on social media on Thursday. Although details on the new model have not yet been revealed, it is speculated that it is the Poco C4, the successor to the Poco C3 launched in the country last year. The previous model was a slightly modified version of the Redmi 9C and came with features like triple rear cameras and a teardrop-shaped display notch.
The official Poco India account on Twitter job the teaser to hint at the upcoming launch of a new Poco C-series phone. The launch will take place at 12 p.m. (noon) on September 30, according to the teaser.
Shortly after the Xiaomi spin-off brand released the teaser, some of its subscribers commented to speculate on the launch of the Poco C4. This could be the successor to the Poco C3 which launched in October last year as the most affordable Poco phone. The official teaser image doesn’t give any specific details and simply says “CU Soon”, suggesting the launch of a new model from the Poco C series.
The Poco C3 broke the record for sales of one million units in India in January, which rose to over two million in August. The phone also benefited from a price drop earlier this year and is currently available for purchase with a starting price of Rs. 7,349 for the 3GB RAM + 32GB storage variant. There is also a 4GB RAM + 64GB storage option priced at Rs. 8,349.
