There is a new Entry-Level King in town – the Realme C2 smartphone! Here is everything you need to know about the latest entry-level smartphone from Realme!


The Realme C2 Smartphone

The Realme C2 is an evolutionary upgrade of the Realme C1, which decimated the entry-level market last year.

Dewdrop Display

The Realme C1 had a 6.2-inch notched display. The Realme C2 comes with a 6.1-inch dewdrop display, with a slightly wider resolution of 720 x 1520 pixels and aspect ratio of 19.5:9

Faster 12 nm Mobile SoC

The Realme C2 runs on a faster MediaTek Helio P22 mobile SoC. More importantly, the Helio P22 was built on the 12 nm process technology, which makes it more power-efficient.

Smudge-Free Chassis

Realme maintained the same diamond-cut chassis design, but upgraded it with a smudge-free treatment. It is offered in the same two colours – Black and Blue.

Smaller Battery

Thanks to its more power-efficient SoC, the Realme 2 comes with a slightly smaller 4,000 mAh battery.
