Poco C65, the successor to the Poco C55, was launched globally in November this year. The phone is powered by a MediaTek Helio G85 SoC and is backed by a 5,000mAh battery with support for 18W wired fast charging via a micro USB port. It is equipped with a 50-megapixel dual rear camera unit and a 6.74-inch HD+ display. A report has now surfaced online suggesting that the Poco C65 will launch in India soon. The report also shares a leaked promotional image of the Indian variant of the handset that shows the back panel of the smartphone.
A 91Mobiles report shared a leaked promotional image of what is said to be the Indian variant of the Poco C65. The image shared is shown in a similar design to that of the global variant launched earlier this year. It is shown in a purple colour option, although the report claims that it may launch in the country with more colour options.
Citing industry sources, the report notes that the handset is likely to be a rebrand of the Redmi 13C. The Indian variant of the Poco C65 is likely to be powered by a MediaTek Helio G85 SoC, similar to its global counterpart, the report adds.
Offered in Black, Blue, and Purple colourways globally, the Poco C65 starts at $129 (roughly Rs. 10,700) for its 6GB + 128GB variant, while the 8GB + 256GB option is listed at $149 (roughly Rs. 12,400). The global variant of the phone comes with a 6.74-inch HD+ (1,600 x 720 pixels) display with a refresh rate of 90Hz and ships with Android 13-based MIUI 14 for Poco.
