Realme took the wraps off its newest smartphone, the Realme C3, in India.
The C3 continues the new lineup of Realme phones that offer big battery capacities. This, too, has a 5000mAh battery setup. The brand touts that this phone, too, can last up to 30 days on standby, and more than 10 hours of PUBG gaming.
It also has a sunlight burst pattern that we’ve already seen with the Realme 5i. What’s different here are the cameras and its internal hardware. It continues the tradition of using MediaTek chips. This time, though, it’s one of the first to sport the newly-announced MediaTek Helio G70 chip that’s primarily aimed for gaming optimization.

What’s unique with the Realme C3 this time is it’s one of the first C-series phones to feature reverse charging. You can use the device to power up other devices, acting as a power bank.
A 12-megapixel lens leads the dual-rear camera setup and is paired with a 2MP portrait cam. Realme says these can shoot slow scenes at 120 frames per second, and capture videos at up to Full HD.
The Realme C3 will come in two colors, and subsequent variants with different price points: INR 6,999 for the 3GB + 32GB model, while the beefier 4GB+64GB device is tagged at INR 7,999. The device will be on sale in India via its official online store and other channels starting February 14. No word yet on it’s local arrival, but we expect it to be coming really soon.
