No Qualcomm or MediaTek SoCs in Poco C40; MIUI Go: Report

Poco is rumored to be working on a new smartphone that could be part of the company’s C-series of very cheap phones. JR510 SoC instead of chipsets from well-known brands like Qualcomm, MediaTek, or Unisoc.

If you want to buy the Poco C40 smartphone, you haven’t heard about it yet from Poco. A particular version of the company’s operating system called MIUI Go may also run on this phone. It could be the same version that comes with all of its phones.

Kacper Skrzypek, a senior member of XDA developers and a developer, says that the Poco C40 will not have the same processor as the Poco F1. It has a Snapdragon 680 SoC.

A Redmi 10C (C3Q) also has the same model number as the rumored Poco C40 (C3QP). There is a possibility that the Poco C40 will use the chipset of a company named Treswave called JR510 on it.

This isn’t the first time this has happened. Geekbench has previously shown the same model number C3QP on a device called “frost.” If you look at the FCC website, you can see a smartphone with the model number 220333QPG. Gadgets 360 was able to check the listing for the phone independently.

Skrzypek found a new software flag called IS MIUI GO VERSION in the MIUI firmware. This suggests that the Poco C40 may run a different version of MIUI than other phones from the company.

It’s not clear what MIUI Go is or how it works, but the developer says the flag shows up with the IS MIUI LITE VERSION, limiting some entry-level device features. MIUI Go could be a resource-saving mode for less powerful phones or a modified version of Android (Go edition), the report says.
