Realme C3 specifications
The Realme C3 is a dual SIM smartphone that is powered by the recently-launched eight-core MediaTek Helio G70 processor clocked at up to 2.0GHz. The smartphone comes in two RAM and memory variants - 3GB/32GB and 4GB/64GB - with support for expandable storage of up to 256GB via microSD card. There is a 6.52-inch HD+ 'MiniDrop' display, which is essentially company's term for a water drop-style notch display. The display comes with 'latency optimisation', which is supported by the processor to render better refresh rates, Realme claimed. The Realme C3 has been designed using the company's 'Sunrise' theme, the company said.
Realme C3 is also the first smartphone to ship with Realme UI out of the box. Realme UI is based on Android 10, which means the dark mode will be available. One of the interesting features of Realme UI is dual-mode music share, wherein you can listen to music on Realme C3 via 3.5mm earphones and wireless earphones simultaneously. Following the Realme C3 launch, more Realme phones will begin receiving the Realme UI in the coming weeks.
There are three slots on the Realme C3 so that you can insert two nano-sized SIM cards and a microSD card.
The smartphone comes with dual cameras at the back - a 12-megapixel main camera with f/1.8 aperture and fast PDAF and a 2-megapixel secondary camera. The cameras support Realme's Chroma Boost technology to produce better contrasts and colours in photographs. There is HDR mode also available on the Realme C3 cameras. For selfies, there is a 5-megapixel AI Beauty camera that has beautification features in-built.
One of its selling points is the Realme C3 battery, which is 5000mAh. The Realme C3 is claimed to play six continuous movies on a single charge and offer a 30-day standby. The battery supports reverse charging, which means you can charge other phones using the Realme C3. There is no fingerprint sensor on the device though.
