Poco launched the Poco C50 last week, and the affordable Android smartphone is now officially available to purchase in India. Xiaomi could be readying another, slightly higher-priced but still budget-friendly Android smartphone for Indian smartphone buyers. The Poco C55 could be a rebranded Xiaomi Redmi phone. Let’s look at all the available details of the as-yet-unannounced Android smartphone from Poco.
Poco C55 Could Be A Rebadged Redmi Phone Meant For International Markets
Xiaomi’s sub-brand Redmi launched the Redmi 12C, a budget-friendly smartphone in China. Although Xiaomi hasn’t officially confirmed yet, the smartphone could arrive in India next month. The global and the Indian variant of the Redmi 12C should be nearly identical to the Chinese variant. However, the same smartphone could also launch under the Poco brand as the Poco C55.

Leaker Kacper Skrzypek has claimed the Redmi 12C will make its global debut as the POCO C55 moniker. His tweet also indicates the POCO C55 will land in India with the same name as well. Simply put, there will be two smartphones with identical hardware but different names launching under different sub-brands.
It is possible Xiaomi could delay the arrival of the Poco C55 in India and launch the POCO X5 Pro in the country first. The Chinese tech giant could start offering more details in the near future.
