Title: Poco C61 on the Horizon: A Budget-Friendly Addition to the Poco Lineup with Redmi A3 Similarities

This week, Poco, Xiaomi’s sub-brand, introduced its latest offering in India: the X6 Neo. Amidst this excitement, whispers about another upcoming release from the budget-focused C series have emerged. The Poco C61 has been spotted on the Google Play Supported Devices list, hinting at an imminent launch.

The listing discloses the model number of the forthcoming smartphone as 2312BPC51H, and the name, Poco C61, is now confirmed. Nevertheless, limited information about the device is available at this time from Google’s listing.

Before surfacing on the Play Store list, the Poco C61 received Bluetooth SIG certification and was discovered on the BIS certification database with the same model number (2312BPC51H). A fascinating observation is that the device shares its model number with the Redmi A3 (23129RN51H) in all certifications. This suggests a strong likelihood of the Poco C61 being a rebrand from an existing Xiaomi model.
