Announcement of POCO C40 – budget with exotic hardware

POCO introduced a new ultra-budget smartphone C40 in Vietnam, which was noted mainly for its

"iron".The fact is that the “daughter” of Xiaomi used the 11-nm JLQ JR510. This is a Chinese development (an attempt to bypass American technology) that offers 8 Cortex-A55 cores at 2 GHz. It is expected to be comparable to the entry-level chipsets MediaTek Helio P22 / P35 and Qualcomm Snapdragon 450. The “exotic” 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of ROM is added, a simple 6.71 ″ IPS display with HD + resolution with a huge 6000 mAh battery with 18W charging. There is a fingerprint scanner on the back. The price is 3,490,000 in local currency, which is equivalent to 9175 rubles. Release in other regions will be confirmed later.
