The POCO C50 was recently launched in India and according to the rumors, its successor will be called the POCO C55. Back in September 2022, the POCO C55 was seen on ECC certification in Europe with the model number 22127PC95G. Today, the phone just got approved by Singapore’s IMDA authority.
Although the listing on IMDA did not reveal the specifications of the phone, rumor has it that the POCO C55 will be the rebranded Redmi 12C that was recently launched in China. If we go by this information, we can speculate on the specifications of the POCO C55 and point out what to expect when the phone debuts.
Just like the Redmi 12C launched in China, the POCO C55 will come with a 6.71-inch IPS LCD display with an HD+ resolution of 720 x 1650 pixels. It’ll have a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner and boot MIUI 13 based on Android 13 out of the box.
The performance of the phone will be powered by the Helio G85 chipset from MediaTek and the chipset will be paired with up to 6GB of LPDDR4x RAM and up to 128GB of eMMC 5.1 storage. A 5,000mAh battery will power the phone and it’ll feature a 5-megapixel front camera, a 50-megapixel main camera, and a 0.8-megapixel depth sensor.
The listing on EEC and IMDA shows that the POCO C55 might be available for purchase in Europe, India, and other markets. But in regions where the POCO C55 will not be launched, the Redmi 12C will be launched which basically the same phone with a different name.
