What's an intriguing aspect here is that instead of choosing from the famous ones like Qualcomm, MediaTek, or Unisoc. The Chinese phone maker opted to choose the 2.0GHz 11nm JR510 octa-core processor from the JLQ Technology which is a semiconductor maker based in Shanghai.

According to POCO,  this processor should be on par with the 12nm Snapdragon 450 and MediaTek's 12nm Helio G35.

Moving forward, the C40 smartphone also has 4GB RAM and 64GB expandable storage.
