Realme has launched two more high-spec’d variants for the Realme C1, which will serve as a refresh of the series for the year 2019.
The phone is getting a 2 GB RAM and 32 GB storage variant, as well as a 3 GB RAM and 32 GB storage. Realme C1 was only available in a 2/16 GB configuration before, and the new refresh is looking to update the lineup so it can attract more buyers for the year.
Competing against Samsung
Realme is unrolling the smartphone for the first time in the Indian market, with an official launch scheduled to happen on February 5 in the region, while there’s no word on when the upgraded variants will get unveiled in other regions.
It seems that the company is gearing up to go head-to-head with Samsung, which is already working on its M series smartphones, that will debut first in India with similar specs as the latest Realme C1 (2019).
The rest of the specifications of the Realme C1 include a Snapdragon 450 chipset and a 4230 mAh battery, which are mostly unchanged from last year. The phone sports a dual rear camera set up with AI capabilities, as well as a 19:9 notched display that measures 6.2-inches (at HD+ resolution).
Pricing is being kept pretty low at INR 7,499 (~Rs. 14,650) for 2/32 GB and INR 8,499 (~Rs. 16,600) for 3/32 GB. Both variants will hit the Indian market via online channels like Flipkart on February 5 in Deep Black and Ocean Blue colors.
