The Realme 3 Pro was finally made official today, however the announcement saw the launching of another device – the Realme C2. The phone is advertised as an affordable handset, but brings some midrange features that could disrupt the low-end market.
The screen is 6.1-inch 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.
