Realme Philippines is expected to officially introduce themselves in the Philippine market on November 29. While their local arm was completely mum about the devices that they will be introducing here, the company has finally graced us with an information about a device that they will be launching in the country.
In a recent Facebook post, the company announced that the Realme C1 will be one of the first devices that they will be bringing here in the Philippines.
Realme Philippines surely wants to make a great impression as the Realme C1 is their most affordable device to date. But despite the affordable price tag, this handset packs some pretty impressive hardware on the inside.
One of its main highlights is the large 4,230mAh battery. This can easily last you for a day or two, considering all of the humble hardware that it needs to power.
Speaking of which, the Realme C1 comes with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 octa-core processor, with 2GB of RAM, and 16GB of expandable storage. A standard affair for devices at this category.
It also boasts a large 6.2-inch HD+ screen, a dual 13-megapixel + 2-megapixel cameras on the back, and runs on Android 8.1 Oreo with Color OS 5.1 on top.
As you can see, the Realme C1 looks very similar to the OPPO A3s, which retails on the Philippines for Php6,990.
Speaking of which, Realme is yet to announce the official price of the C1 here in the country. But for a perspective, the device retails for INR7,999 (it went on sale for INR6,999) in India, which is at around Php5,900 when directly converted to Philippine pesos.
