Back in the last month, POCO presented the POCO C50 in India and it was quite pointless. Apart from the iconic POCO design, the device was basically a Redmi A1+ which was available in India the last year. Well, POCO decided to revamp the lineup with a new incremental upgrade dubbed POCO C55. Yesterday, we got a couple of weird teasers for the phone with phrases like “good look” and “avoid cases”. In addition, tipster Yogesh Brar showed the phone in all its glory with a fancy back. Now, POCO has confirmed the phone launch date as well as its nice design.
POCO will be taking the wraps off the POCO C55 on February 21. It will be launched in India at 12:00 AM IST and will be sold through Flipkart. As per the teasers, the POCO C55 will come with a faux leather back panel, with faux seams in the middle. As usual, we have a big black square in the top part. It houses the POCO logo and the camera’s separate rectangle. The camera setup has a total of two cameras and a third hole with the “AI” word. There is also a Fingerprint scanner at the rear and an LED flash.

Once again, the cricketer Hardik Pandya serves as POCO’s brand ambassador for the unveiling. In a new shot, we can see the athlete holding the new POCO C55. Yogesh Brar revealed the green color, and the new teaser also shows the color option. So this is probably the hero color for the phone, but we can’t discard additional colorways. It’s better to not hold your breath, after all, the additional color might be just a black variant.
POCO C55 specifications
As usual in POCO’s recent history, the POCO C55 may end up being another rebranded phone. In this case, we are probably looking at a rebranded Redmi 12C. If that’s the case, then the phone will bring a 6.71-inch HD+ LCD screen. It will pack the MediaTek Helio G85 SoC with up to 6 GB of RAM and up to 128 GB of Internal Storage. The phone has a 50 MP main camera with a 0.08 MP depth sensor. There is also a 5 MP selfie shooter sitting at the waterdrop notch. The phone draws power from a 5,000 mAh battery.
