Shenzhen-based Chinese smartphone manufacturer Realme has launched C3. It is the sibling with the same appellation that the company launched in India some time ago. But the siblings differ from each other in terms of configuration, specifications, and price in both countries. In India, Realme launched C3 under the tag of ‘Budget Phone,’ while in Thailand, they haven’t attached any such label. In the Thai variant, internal features, camera, fingerprint sensor, memory options are upscaled.
Realme C3 Phone Specifications
Although Thailand’s variant has few commonalities with the Indian version. It comprises a MediaTek Helio G70 SoC CPU, a 6.52- inch screen, as well as a 5,000 mAh battery. However, the differences are that there’s a third camera, along with a fingerprint sensor.
- The unique feature of the Thai version is the triple rear camera. It has a 12 MP primary sensor, 2 MP macro lens, and 2 MP depth sensor.
- Aperture f/1.8 is quite an impressive up-gradation along with 4x electronic zoom. As far as the front camera is concerned, there’s no upgrade from the Indian variant.
- It is the same 5 MP camera with charm and HDR option having an aperture of f/2.4.
- MediaTek Helio G70 SoC is an Arm cortex A75 CPU with 2 GHZ and A55 single octa-core clusters.
- It comprises a dedicated Camera Control Unit (CCU), RSC, and EIS features.
These features specifically improve the video recording performances up to 240fps. As evident, MediaTek Helio G70 and triple camera in the C3 device suit each other well.
Apart from camera support, G70 SoC also has exciting features such as Accelerated positioning, Dual 4G VoLTE supporting 802.11 connectivity. It certainly improves the phone’s performance over Wi-Fi and high internet speed. G70 provides Integrated voice backup and fast AI-performance, which puts the mobile in competition with other gaming smartphones.
The most attractive addition is the rear-mounted fingerprint sensor, which wasn’t present in the Indian version. On the software aspect, the smartphone comes with Android 10 with Realme UI 1.0.
In terms of memory, Realme has launched it with 2 GB, 3 GB, 4 GB, and 8 GB RAM options. Also, there are 32 GB & 64 GB of storage capacity options. The 5000 mAh battery supports reverse charging technology. The whole world is marching towards the USB Type-C charging port. But Realme has continued with USB 2.0 port only.
Realme C3 Price and Launch Date
In India, Realme launched it as a budget phone at Rs 6, 999. In Thailand, they’ve launched Thai siblings at THB 3,999 (equivalent to Rs 9,100). With the addition of such interesting features, the new Thai Price seems pretty fair and still holds a good deal. It is available in the Thai online market via Shopee and Lazada from February 20, 2020.
However, this is the price for only the most-basic variant i.e., 32 GB storage with 3 GB RAM. The smartphone maker has not yet revealed the price of other high-end variants. Notably, Realme has launched C3 in Frozen Blue and Blazing Red colors with backside sunrise design.
