Once again, Realme is coming up with a new budget smartphone with the upcoming Realme C11.
Just yesterday, the Realme C11 was spotted on the company’s official Facebook page in Malaysia. Albeit, the teaser showed an unnamed Realme device to be the first to use the new MediaTek Helio G35 processor. Albeit, Realme Malaysia did confirm to the local press that it’s indeed the C11.
The device’s naming is as odd as the processor. What we have right now is the Realme C3 with a Helio G70 chipset. Either the C11 is just a quick dodge in branding it as the C4 (a namesake to an explosive device), or the new Helio G35 will introduce a new line of cheaper gaming-centric entry-level phones in the market. For now, your guess is as good as ours.
Other than the processor, Realme also teased the device’s design on Malaysian media. It looks like Realme doesn’t run out of new ideas as the Realme C11 features a brand new look that’s different from any of their releases.
The back panel looks like a textured polycarbonate material, just like the C3, with a strip that transcends from the camera with the large Realme logo printed on the bottom. However, Realme’s official teaser obscures the camera design.
Thankfully, another leak has revealed the device’s design in all its glory. An image surfaced, possibly coming from an official promo material, reveals that the Realme C11 will have dual cameras on the back, placed in a Pixel 4-like square glass.
It also shows that the C11 will have a large 5,000mAh battery to compensate for the seemingly low-end hardware. Plus, a large 6.5-inch screen with a mini-drop notch on top.
The lack of a fingerprint scanner on the back means that Realme placed it on the side, or omitted it completely to make the price more affordable.
The official release date for the Realme C11 is yet to be announced. But considering we’re seeing first signs in Malaysia, expect this country to get first dibs on this device.
