In Phones by Ramon LopezLeave a Comment

POCO will release a new budget smartphone in the Philippines on November 6, a day after the device’s international unveiling and just in time for the 11.11 sale. It is the successor to the widely popular POCO C55, which launched back in February earlier this year.

(Update, November 6: The phone is official! Check out the POCO C65’s specs now.)

The new POCO C65 will debut at local retail with an introductory price of P4,999 or roughly $89 converted for the base model with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage and at global retail for $109. The higher-end 8GB/256GB variant, on the other hand, will be priced at P5,999 ($107) and $129, respectively, for early adopters. Those prices are pretty great for an entry-level phone.

The standard pricing for the 6GB/128GB and 8GB/256GB versions are P5,499 ($98) and P6,499 ($115), respectively. Keep in mind that the C65, like other POCO phones, will be exclusive to online retail, so you’re better off purchasing it from one of the brand’s official e-commerce stores. Your color options are black and blue.

This is how much the POCO C65 will sell for in the Philippines

The global pricing, in case you’re based outside the Philippines. The international launch is scheduled for November 5

Official posters reveal that the POCO C65 is going to feature a 50-megapixel image sensor and a MediaTek Helio G85 4G chipset as its biggests highlights. Not much else is known about the upcoming device. However, based on the smartphone’s design, it’s likely that the POCO C65 is a rebadged Xiaomi Redmi 13C, which has been previously leaked in an unboxing video.

The latter packs a 6.74-inch display with a 90Hz refresh rate and FHD+ resolution, along with a 5,000mAh battery pack that supports fast charging up to 18 watts over USB-C. Unsurprisingly, the Redmi 13C runs Android 13-based MIUI 14.0.1 out of the box.
