The Chinese brand launched the POCO C3 mobile on October 6 in a virtual event it hosted. Before the official event, POCO had already revealed several key specifications and features of the handset through teasers across its social media accounts.

POCO C3 price in India

When it comes to pricing, there are two price tags for two different variants of the phone.
Specifically, you can choose either 3GB RAM with 32GB internal storage or 4GB RAM with 64GB onboard memory. The first variant is priced at Rs 7,499 while the second one will cost you Rs 8,999.

It’s worth noting that these price tags are introductory offers, so the POCO C3 price will likely cost more in after the festive season.

You can already see the POCO C3 Flipkart as the phone is listed on the e-commerce site with different color options including Arctic Blue, Matte Black, and Lime Green. But it’s not available yet so you can’t order it right now.

POCO C3 unboxing

The POCO C3 is shipped in a black box with the brand name at the top and the phone’s name in the middle of the lid. Both the brand name and phone name are yellow. When removing the lid, you will see a completely yellow box.

There is a manual and SIM tray ejector, but no transparent silicone case included if that’s what you were expecting. Underneath the manual is the phone. Then, the retail box also includes a charger, USB cable, and no earphones.

So, the retail box is pretty basic and you will have to buy external earphones.
