Realme launches the C30 with a set of humble specs, affordable price, and surprisingly, a very unique and clean design.
The Realme C30 boasts a look inspired by a suitcase as it comes with vertical lines. It may not be the most interesting design inspiration, but it surprisingly works as it looks really neat.
Everything else about this affordable phone, as expected, is pretty basic. On the front, we have a generic 6.5-inch HD+ IPS screen. No high refresh rate, but it does have 120Hz touch sampling for improved responsiveness when playing games.
The 5-megapixel selfie camera sits in a waterdrop notch on top of the screen, while a large lens on the back holds the 8-megapixel single rear shooter. It didn’t get to have a fingerprint scanner.
Powering the device is UNISOC’s T612 octa-core processor clocked at 1.82GHz and has a Mali-G57 GPU. Realme claims that the device got a score of 176,932 in the AnTuTu benchmark.
Battery is rated at a 5,000mAh battery and comes with a 10W adapter, albeit it only comes with a microUSB port. It ships with the power-efficient Realme UI Go edition software.
The Realme C30 has a price of INR7,499 (around Php5,200) and INR8,299 (around Php5,700) for the 2GB/32GB and 3GB/32GB variants, respectively. They will soon be available in India while release details in the Philippines are yet to be known.
