The Xiaomi Poco C3 sports a quad-camera setup at the rear. The lenses are housed in a square camera module located at the top right side of the phone. The setup is made of a 13 MP main camera + 8 MP ultrawide snapper + 5 MP macro shooter + 2 MP depth sensor. Next to the lenses, there is a single LED flash for lighting up those low light regions.
At the front, the phone sports a single 8 MP shooter. The snapper is located at the top of the display as the phone utilizes the waterdrop notch design for its selfie camera.
Both the cameras can shoot videos at 1080@30fps.
The Poco C3 comes with a pretty sizeable battery. It is powered by a 5020 mAh battery with an 18W fast charging capability. It comes with a USB Type-C for data transfer and charging.
