Xiaomi POCO C55 goes official with MediaTek Helio G85 CPU and up to 6GB RAM

Xiaomi has just launched the POCO C55, an affordable smartphone in India that appears to be a near-identical copy of last year’s Redmi 12C, currently only available in China. While the two devices share a lot of similarities, the Poco C55 does have some differences in appearance, since it has a leather-like back and a different camera block design.

In terms of specifications, the POCO C55 features a MediaTek Helio G85 chipset, which is not the latest but is typically found in budget devices, and is expected to tip above 200K in AnTuTu benchmark. It comes with 4 or 6GB of RAM, 64 or 128GB of storage, and support for memory cards.


The phone has a standard 5000mAh battery, with a slow charging speed of only 10W. The screen is 6.71 inches with a resolution of 720×1650 and a pixel density of 268 PPI. The cameras are simple, with a 5 MP front-facing camera and a 50MP primary camera at the back, along with an auxiliary AI lens.

The device does not have an NFC module, but it does feature dual-band Wi-Fi and a fingerprint scanner located at the back. It also has an outdated Micro-USB connector, and it is still based on Google Android 12 with MIUI 13 for POCO devices.
