Realme has officially launched the budget Realme C3 which is the first phone to be powered by the MediaTek Helio G70 SoC. The entry-level smartphone will offer users a decently powerful chipset for an incredibly low price. The company has priced the base variant of the device at just Rs. 6,999. It is the successor of the Realme 2C that was powered by a MediaTek P22 SoC.
With yet another addition to the sub Rs. 10,000 price segment, things are about to heat up even further. However, this makes things a lot more complicated. We’re seeing new devices within the 10k price segment launch almost every month, if not every other week. Hence it’s impossible to know which device is the best device under 10k since a better phone might be just around the corner. Nevertheless, the latest device from Realme packs in a bunch of interesting features for its price. So let’s take a look at the specifications of the Realme C3.
Realme C3 specifications
Being a budget-friendly smartphone, the Realme C3 does not have any out-of-the-world specifications or features to write home about. But for the price, which we will get back to later, it offers some excellent hardware and silicone.
- 6.52-inch LCD display with an HD+ resolution — 720 x 1600 pixels.
- MediaTek Helio G70 SoC paired with the Mali G52 GPU.
- 3GB or 4GB RAM variants.
- 32GB or 64GB storage variants. Expandable up to 256GB via the dedicated TF card slot.
- Rear cameras: 12MP primary + 2MP depth sensor.
- Front camera: 5MP.
- 5000mAh battery.
- Android 10 with Realme UI onboard.
The Realme C3 will be the company’s first phone to run Realme UI out-of-the-box. Realme’s new UI isn’t drastically different from Color OS. However, there are a few noticeable changes in the UI. Moving over to the camera department, there aren’t any extraordinary features. The device can record 1080p video at 30 frames per second via the font and rear cameras. The dual rear camera setup also allows users to capture portrait shots.
One feature that stands out is the 5000mAh battery on the Realme C3. Thanks to the large battery capacity, users can easily get through a day or two of usage without having to charge the device. Users can also make use of the large battery capacity by charing other devices thanks to the reverse charging feature on the device. Additionally, the device also features a 120hz touch sampling rate.
Pricing and availability
At first, the Realme C3 will only be available via Flipkart and the company’s official website. And the first sale of the device will kick off from the 14th of February. The base variant of the device which is the 3GB + 32GB model is priced at Rs. 6,999. On the other hand, the 4GB + 64GB variant is priced at Rs. 7,999.
