Poco C3 price in India has been tipped through leaked images of an alleged retail box, as shared by a tipster on Telegram. As per the leak, the Poco C3 will be priced at Rs 10,990 for the 4GB + 64GB variant. The box shows a couple other details about the Poco C3 but key specifications are still unknown. However, the phone is believed to be a rebranded Redmi 9C and will likely carry the same or slightly tweaked specifications. Back in July, the Poco C3 appeared in a Bluetooth SIG listing with multiple Redmi 9 series phones showing similarities in the model numbers.

The images of the alleged retail box have been shared by tipster LeakerBaba on Telegram and show the front and side of the box.

The Poco C3, as per the leaked retail box, will be priced at Rs. 10,990 for the 4GB + 64GB storage variant and offered in a Matte Black colour option. The model number mentioned on the box is M2006C3MI.
Poco has not shared a release date for the Poco C3 yet.
The same model number was previously spotted in a Bluetooth SIG listing where the Poco C3 was part of a list of Redmi 9 series phones. The Redmi 9C had the model number M2006C3MG and the similarity between the two mode numbers suggests that the Poco C3 may be a rebranded Redmi 9C for the Indian market. If that turns out to be true, the specifications for the Poco C3 become quite clear.
Interestingly, the Redmi 9C that originally launched in Malaysia has already been launched in India as the Redmi 9 with minor tweaks.
