POCO C51's Modern Take on Samsung S4's Iconic Textured Back Design

We have great news for people waiting for a new affordable phone. Xiaomi has introduced the all-new POCO C51 globally with decent specs and features. Due to the economic crisis in Pakistan, this budget-friendly phone is going to get special attention from low-income consumers. Curious to know the details? Let’s see the POCO C51 price in Pakistan, specs, and features here.

POCO C51 2023 Design

Designwise, POCO C51 is a blend of classic style and modern trends. On its back, it has a dual camera module with a slight camera bump. However, the highlight is its textured rear side which provides exceptional grip compared to those glassy phones (popular these days). A fingerprint sensor is also placed on the backside. 


The sides of POCO C51 are flat which gives it a premium look. Coming to its front side, you will notice a dewdrop notch straightaway. The lower chin bezel is a little larger than what we are used to seeing these days.

Its textured backside will brought the old memories of Samsung S4 for many people. Let’s see them side by side.

POCO C51 2023 Display

Coming to the display of POCO C51 2023, it is pretty decent in terms of size (6.52”). Its IPS LCD panel has an HD+ (720 x 1600) which you will see in most low-price mobile phones these days. In terms of color quality, you cannot expect much with these specs. But there is also a positive side, due to lower resolution and smaller screen size (compared to industry standard), it may consume less battery.

POCO C51 2023 Camera

Well! The camera department of POCO C51 is not going to impress many. But it is still decent at this price. It comes with a dual camera setup on the rear side. The primary camera is 8MP whereas the 2nd camera (depth sensor) is 0.08 MP. The 2nd camera is of no use to most people. The Selfie camera is 5MP which is still just there to show it has a front camera. Both rear and front cameras can record videos up to 1080p.

POCO C51 Performance

We cannot expect anything in terms of performance from POCO C51. It will be okay for daily tasks but not for power-demanding tasks. Games like PUBG with even medium to low settings are out of the league here (if you don’t like frame drops).

POCO C51 Price in Pakistan 2023

The price (global) of POCO C51 is approx. $104 (~Rs.29,000). The phone is yet to be launched in Pakistan. The actual price will be higher upon its launch here due to taxes and duties. If you can’t wait for its launch, buy other POCO phones.


In the end, POCO C51 is a phone which can attract people with low income. This type of phone was available for under Rs.20,000 last year and now its expected price is over Rs.30,000. The only impressive thing about it is its textured design. Otherwise, you won’t want it for its performance, camera, or features. Still, it is a decent low-price phone compared to other options available in the market.
