Google Play Console reveals that Poco C61 is probably a rebranded Redmi A3

Earlier this week, Poco introduced its X6 Neo smartphone in India. However, it seems that the company is preparing to release another budget C-series smartphone – Poco C61. The smartphone has appeared in the list of supported devices on Google Play, hinting at its imminent arrival.

The listing contains the model number of the smartphone 2312BPC51H, and the name is confirmed – Poco C61. However, this is almost all the information that is available in the Google listing at the moment.

Prior to this, the Poco C61 also received Bluetooth SIG certification and was listed in the BIS certification database with the same model number as the Play Store listing. And interestingly, in all certificates, the device has the same model as the Redmi A3 – 23129RN51H, which suggests that the Poco C61 is likely to be a rebranding.
