This decline in shipments forced the company to drop from being the fourth major brand in India to number five. The key thing to watch would be whether Realme can add more interest in its products. We already know that Realme C3 will be available for purchase from Flipkart. We also know that it will be available in two storage variants: 3GB + 32GB and 4GB + 64GB. In comparison to its predecessor, the smartphone seems to have a bigger display. As a result, it is also being dubbed as “Entertainment ka Superstar” by the company.
The teaser page for the smartphone has revealed 5,000mAh battery with 30 days of standby time. The smartphone will be powered by MediaTek Helio G70 SoC, which is a mid-range gaming processor. There is a 6.5-inch display and dual rear camera setup. At the front, there will be a 5-megapixel selfie camera. It will also be the first smartphone to launch with Realme UI out of the box. The specifications alone make Realme C3 a new start in this segment. It is expected to be priced around Rs 7,000 and will compete with upcoming Redmi 9A and Redmi 9 smartphones.
