The Realme 3 Pro is finally official, but the announcement saw another device making a debut - the Realme C2. The phone is advertised as an affordable handset, but brings some midrange features that could disrupt the low-end market. Realme C2 brings a 12 nm Helio P22 chipset to the game for the price of INR5,999 or just $85/€76.
The screen is 6.1” with HD resolution and a waterdrop notch. The chip is coupled with 2/16 GB and 3/32 GB memory combinations, but at least there is a microSD slot for more storage, making company to the two SIM cards, all lined up in one tray. The main camera is the same as on the Realme C1 (2019) - 13 MP + 2 MP on the back, 5 MP front-facing shooter on the front.
Since this phone is a 2019 device, it comes with Color OS 6.0, based on Android Pie. It has Chroma Boost and some basic slow-mo - 80 fps at 480p. The C2’s user interface will be without ads, which is a clear dab towards Xiaomi and its ad-infused MIUI.
The phone will be offered in Diamond Blue and Diamond Black colors. It will arrive at Flipkart on May 15, with the low price for the 2/16 GB, while the 3/32 GB variant is priced at INR7,999 ($115/€103). There are benefits worth INR5,300, making the phone “practically free”, according to Madhav Sheth, CEO of Realme India.
