Starting Price

Earlier this month, the Redmi 13C was launched in India for a starting price of ₹8,999. The phone features a MediaTek Helio G85 chipset, a 90Hz LCD, and a 5,000mAh battery. Today, the same phone was launched in India under the Poco brand, the Poco C65. It is worth mentioning that the C65 was launched in Europe last month. As always, the phone from Poco has a slightly different look on the back and lower pricing than its Redmi counterpart.

Poco C65 comes in two colors – Matte Black and pastel Blue. Like other Poco smartphones, the phone has branding on the side of the camera module. There are flat sides, a side-mounted fingerprint sensor, a USB Type-C port on the bottom, a single bottom-firing speaker, and a 3.5mm headphone jack on the top.
