Additionally, the storage is further expandable up to 512GB via microSD card on all three internal storage variants.
In terms of optics, the smartphone features a 50-megapixel rear camera and a 5-megapixel selfie shooter. Given that the POCO C55 falls in the budget category, it could cost under Rs 10,000 in the country. However, we advise you to wait for official confirmation from the company.
