Realme Malaysia just introduced a brand-new entry-level smartphone, the Realme C53.

If it looks familiar, that’s because the Realme C53 is essentially a rebranded Narzo N53 that came out a few days ago. It has the same design, iPhone-like camera layout, and hardware.


That means it has the same 6.74-inch LCD display with a 90Hz refresh rate and 180Hz touch sampling. There’s a waterdrop notch, which can show Dynamic Island-like notifications.

Powering the device is the same UNISOC T612 octa-core processor, which you can pair with up to 6GB of RAM and 128GB of expandable storage.


The said camera layout holds the ultra-sharp 50-megapixel main camera, a depth sensor, and an LED flash. An 8-megapixel selfie camera is on the front.

Keeping the lights on is a 5,000mAh battery paired with 33W SuperVOOC charging.


The new Realme C53 with a 6GB/128GB configuration is already available in Malaysia for a price of MYR550 (~Php6,700). Release details in the Philippines are yet to be announced.
