As per information provided by Flipkart, the Poco C55 is a 4G smartphone with an effective price of Rs 8,499. The official cost of the phone is Rs 9,499 for the model with 4 GB RAM and 64 GB of storage while the model with 6 GB of memory and 128 GB of storage will set one back Rs 10,999.

In terms of specifications, the Poco C55 is equipped with a 6.71-inch IPS LCD display with a 20:9 aspect ratio and HD+ resolution. The phone boasts a scratch-resistant screen with Oleophobic coating. Moreover, the device also comes with IP52 rating which makes it resistant to water splashes. One unique feature of the new Poco phone is its leather-like stitch finish at the back, which is not commonly found in the Rs 10,000 price range.
The Poco C55 is equipped with a MediaTek Helio G85 SoC under the hood, which has powered some budget phones in the past and offers decent levels of performance.
