The phone features a MediaTek Helio G35 octa-core processor along with a PowerVR8320 GPU. The C31 has 4GB/6GB of LPDDR4x RAM, and 64GB/128GB of eMMC 5.1 on-board storage with a dedicated micoSD card slot. The device runs on Android 11 with MIUI 12.5 on top.
There are two cameras on the C31’s back panel, the primary lens is a 13 megapixels f/2.2 aperture shooter, while the secondary camera is a 2MP depth sensor with an f/2.4 aperture lens, and an LED Flash. The rear panel is also home to a fingerprint reader.
The Poco C31 features a 5000 mAh battery, which charges over a micro-USB port, and supports 10W Charging. The phone measures 164.9 x 77.07 x 9.0mm and weighs 194g.
