After several weeks of leaks and speculation, the new device from Realme's most entry-level series has just been presented in India: we welcome the Realme C3.
Realme C3 is official: Entry-level with MediaTek Helio G70
The Realme C3 is a really interesting smartphone that in fact has only the price of entry-level. Inside it we find a MediaTek Helio G70 AI processor, a chipset that could be considered mid-range, at least as regards performance.
Going deeper we discover that the MediaTek Helio G70 incorporates a pair of Arm Cortex-A75 cores at a frequency of up to 2 GHz; plus six Cortex-A55 cores up to 1,8 GHz for improved single and multi-core performance. While video games, an efficient graphics processor, the high-performance Arm Mali-G52, runs at a maximum frequency of 820 MHz.
Finally, always regarding the performance within video games we have HyperEngine technology. This brings some advantages such as the intelligent switch to LTE + WiFi connectivity while playing when the system detects a slow Internet connection. Of course, it also provides stable gaming performance by actively managing CPU and GPU operation.
In any case, the result of this low-cost “power” will be viewable on a 6,5-inch diagonal screen with HD + resolution and mini drop notch at the top with a 5MP camera. The smartphone will then have a rear camera with 12MP resolution and f / 1.8 aperture, accompanied by a 2MP depth sensor and f / 2.4 aperture.
As for autonomy, the Realme C3 is powered by a large 5000mAh battery and reverse charging technology is present; useful for charging other devices. Finally, the only negative hardware factor on C3 is perhaps the lack of a fingerprint sensor. While on the software side, we find the Realme UI with the new graphics and additional features.
The Realme C3 is available in different versions of RAM and internal memory. We have a starting price of 6999 Indian rupees, about 90 €, for the version with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage; and 7999 rupees (€ 102) for 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. The smartphone will go on sale in India from February 14th at 12 noon.
