We’re still waiting for the POCO F4‘s global launch date to be announced, but here’s POCO saying that it will unveil another phone come June 16. Or perhaps it will introduce both on the same date. But we digress.

(Update, June 6: The POCO C40 is scheduled to launch globally June 16. But surprise! It’s now official in an Asian country. Check out its price and specs here!)

The former Xiaomi sub-brand has revealed that the POCO C40 will go official on the international market more than a week from now. And it has confirmed that the handset is equipped with a 6,000mAh battery and a 6.71-inch Dot Drop — aka waterdrop — display.
