Poco has already launched two mid-budget and one premium smartphone this year. And now the word is that the company is planning to launch another smartphone in the budget category soon.

The phone, dubbed as the Poco C3, has already made an appearance on Bluetooth launch studio alongside a bunch of other Redmi phones including the Redmi 9, the Redmi 9A and the Redmi 9C. While the listing doesn't divulge any details about Poco's upcoming smartphone, it does reveal one critical detail about the phone: the Poco C3 has been in the company's pipeline since June this year. This can be ascertained from the fact that Xiaomi puts the month of manufacturing in a phone's model number after the letter M.

While the specifics remain unknown at this point, however, it is easy to guess that the phone could sport a 6.5-inch LCD display and be powered by a MediaTek processor.
