Realme has launched a new budget smartphone under its C-series lineup. Known as Realme C3, it is the successor to the C2 smartphone that was launched in India back in April 2019. It comes featured with a 6.52-inch HD+ Mini-drop notch display with 89.8% screen-to-body ratio. The C3 smartphone becomes the first smartphone to be powered by the MediaTek Helio G70 12nm chipset which was introduced recently for low and mid-budget smartphones.
The smartphone is also Realme’s first device to run on Android 10 with realme UI. For optics, the smartphone gets a dual rear camera setup. It has a primary rear camera of 12MP with f/1.8 aperture, and a secondary 2MP depth sensor. At the front, it has a 5MP selfie camera. The C3 smartphone comes in a pack with a large 5000mAh battery that supports reverse charging. The smartphone features a micro USB port and supports 10W charging.
The design of the smartphone is pretty good but it does not have a fingerprint scanner. It is available in two colour options: Frozen Blue and Blazing Red. The 3GB RAM with 32GB internal storage variant of the smartphone comes priced at INR 6,999 whereas the 4GB+64GB variant costs INR 7,999. It will go on sale on Flipkart and realme.com from February 14th. There are also some launch offers that include a minimum of INR 1,000 off on exchange of any smartphone on Flipkart.
