A few days ago, the handset managed to arrive in India, as well and its market conquest might not be over yet. According to industry sources, the Realme C11 should be landing in Europe really soon.

The expected price point as a bit steeper than the RM429 and INR 7,499, it is currently retailing for in Malaysia and India and puts the phone at around EUR 100 to 120. Even so, that remains perfectly competitive with global pricing for the Redmi 9A and 9C – its direct rivals, currently selling for EUR 99 and EUR 119, for base configurations.
The Realme C11 is built around a MediaTek Helio P35 chipset, alongside 2GB of RAM and 32GB of expandable storage and a 6.5-inch, HD+, LCD display. It has two cameras on the back, in a new square layout, including a 13MP main snapper and a 2MP depth module. Backed-up by “Ai Camera” tech, these promise good portrait mode, 1080p video capture and slow-motion. There’s an impressively-big 5,000 mAh battery keeping the light on, capable of 10W charging via a microUSB port. Realme says one charge should be good for up to 12.1 hours of gaming, 21.6 hours of video and 31.9 hours of calls, as well as a massive 40 days of standby time.
Available colors include Mint Green and Pepper Grey on a body that is marketed as “splash-resistant”. A fingerprint reads is a notable omission from the features list, but other than that, the Realme C11 manages to deliver quite the value proposition.
