According to the aforesaid tweet, the C31 is not just strong, but secure as well. The phone is capable of protecting the users’ highly confidential or trivial passwords. Aside from that, the company claims that they tested it for more than a whopping 6,00,000 fingerprints to restrict unauthorized logins. The tweet included a link to the company’s YouTube channel, where users can watch the Poco C31 launch live stream.
As mentioned earlier, the microsite for the Poco C31 has revealed some key specifications of the upcoming smartphone. Moreover, it corroborates earlier leaks and speculations. For instance, the site confirms that the C31 will pack a MediaTek Helio G35 SoC as some earlier reports suggested. Aside from that, the phone will ship with 4GB of RAM.
For additional security, the C31 will come with a fingerprint scanner and support face unlock. To recall, the Poco C3 used the same processor under its hood and offered the same RAM configuration. It was made available in the Indian market back in October 2020. The Poco C31 is likely to be an upgraded version of its well-received predecessor, the Poco C3.
Furthermore, the microsite claims that the Poco C31 is capable of offering a 25 percent longer lifespan than the market standard. On top of that, the company insists that the C31 will continue to remain as good as new even after 2.5 years of daily use. Other notable details revealed on the microsite imply that the phone will get a significant 1,000 charge cycle count.
The images of the Poco C31 on the microsite showcase a waterdrop-style notch that houses the front shooter. Furthermore, the display seems to have thin bezels, but a significantly thick chin. More details including the phone’s pricing and availability in India will be revealed during the launch event.
