Realme is launching its new entry-level phone in India very soon. The launch date is said to be March 21. Realme C55 will reportedly come with MediaTek's Helio G88 processor which can also be found on the Redmi 10 Prime which was launched two years ago in 2021. Realme hasn’t confirmed the specifications of Reamle C55 yet, but the leaks have surfaced on the internet.
We will be comparing these budget phones and let you decide which one is more value for money and better according to you.
The Realme C55 is reportedly 7.89mm thick and is expected to come in a lightweight design. The phone is said to feature a capsule-shaped notch (update: It is a software feature) which might be inspired by the Dynamic Island on the iPhone 14 Pro. The functionality of the pill-shaped notch is still not exactly clear. We believe it could show the charge on the device. It also reportedly features a capacitive fingerprint sensor.
On the other hand, the Redmi 10 Prime comes with a plastic body with a modern design featuring dual-toned colour options on the back. It has a big rectangular camera module on the back which holds a quad-camera setup. It is 9.5mm thick and weighs 192 grams. The smartphone comes in three colours: Astral White, Phantom Black and Bifrost Blue.
Realme C55 might be rolling out with a 6.72-inch FHD+ IPS LCD display with a resolution of 2400 x 1080 pixels. The display is tipped to support a 90Hz refresh rate and a 180Hz touch sampling rate, to make the screen more responsive.

The processor has a clock speed of 2.0GHz and could be paired with up to 6GB RAM and 128GB storage. The Realme C55 will most likely run on the Android 13-based Realme UI 4.0 operating system. It will be equipped with a 5000mAh battery with 33-watt fast charging support.

Realme has not revealed the price details of Realme C55 but since all the leaked specifications are very basic entry-level configurations so let’s say the expected price range of the phone would be under ₹15,000.

Update: The Dynamic-Island-like feature on the Realme C55 is software-based and the device actually has a punch-hole cutout on the front.
