Realme just introduced its latest entry level phone - Realme C3, bringing a fresh coat of paint and some nice upgrades over its predecessor.
The phone is built around a 6.5-inch HD+ display with slimmed-down bezels all around as well as a smaller waterdrop notch housing the 5MP front camera.
At the helm, is the recently announced Mediatek Helio G70, which is basically be a dialed-back Helio G90 and a huge leap forward from the Helio P22 inside the Realme C2. It is paired with either 3GB or 4GB of LPDDR4X RAM and 32GB or 64GB of expandable storage, respectively. A triple card slot ensures you don't need to sacrifice on a second SIM card to get extra storage either.
The Realme C3's main camera setup includes a 12MP f/1.8 PDAF snapper, along with a 2MP f/2.4 depth sensor.
Realme C3 is also rocking the brand new Realme UI, on top of the Android 10-based ColorOS 7. This is the first phone to feature the company's custom UI out of the box, promising bold colors, high saturation and contrast. Realme UI brings the personal information protection system, which provides blank page to third-party apps that are unable to function without accessing your data.
Dual mode music share also sounds nifty, allowing audio playback through the phone's 3.5mm audio jack and Bluetooth simultaneously.
The phone measures 164.4 x 75 x 8.95 mm. and weighs in at 195 grams, which is really not bad, considering there is a 5,000 mAh battery inside. Realme has even enabled reverse charging on the phone, but sadly it sticks with a microUSB connector.
Realme C3 is clearly aimed at a younger crowd as its only two available colors are Blazing Red and Frozen Blue. There's a new anti-fingerprint finish and the phone is splash resistant even though there's no official ingress protection rating.
The first sale of the Realme C3 is scheduled for February 14 at noon, Indian time. The phone will start from INR6,999 ($100/€90) for the 3/32 GB version and will be INR7,999 ($110/€100), if you decide to go for the roomier 4/64 GB option. It can be purchased online at Flipkart and Realme's own store, but the device will also be available at offline stores soon.
