The Poco C61 sports a familiar design with a waterdrop notch display on the front and a circular camera module on the back, housing dual cameras and an LED flash. The phone offers convenient access to essential ports and buttons, including a triple card slot (2 SIM + 1 microSD) on the left, power button and volume rocker on the right, a USB-C port with a microphone at the bottom, and a 3.5mm headphone jack on top.

Camera & Battery:

The Poco C61 is expected to boast a triple-camera system, featuring a 5MP selfie camera on the front and an 8MP primary camera on the back, accompanied by a 0.08MP secondary sensor.  A dependable 5,000mAh battery with 10W charging support keeps the phone powered throughout the day. For added security, the phone is equipped with a side-mounted fingerprint scanner.

Familiar Yet Expected:

Interestingly, the leaked specifications of the Poco C61 closely resemble the recently launched Redmi A3 in India. This suggests that the Poco C61 might be a rebranded version of the Redmi A3.
