Not from UNISOC or Samsung either
According to rumors released by MIUI Polska and XDA Developers, the upcoming Poco C40 is more than just a Redmi 10C. The design may look similar but its internals isn’t. For one, it will not use any of the most popular chipsets such as Mediatek, Qualcomm, or UNISOC.
Instead, it will use a chipset known as the JLQ JR510 chipset. This is a chipset used by the lesser-known smartphone manufacturer Treswave which is also a contract manufacturer. According to the latest leaks, it has performance similar to the Helio G35 and is manufactured using an 11nm Samsung fabrication process.
This is an octa-core chipset consisting of four Cortex A-55 CPU cores clocked at 1.55GHz. The other four are yet to be announced but rumor has it, it will have 2GHz clock speed. The GPU used is a Mali-G52. It uses a Qualcomm modem and a Qualcomm Hexagon DSP. It does not have 5G services which is expected for a budget phone.
Another trait of the phone is the fact it will come with MIUI Go. This was first seen on its source codes. It may be a skin based off Android Go which means it is a version of MIUI for low-powered phones.
Other specs are yet to be announced but we reckon it’s going to be quite similar to the Redmi 10C.
