Succeeding the entry-level Realme C1, the Realme C2 manages to start at an even lower price with the top-most variant retailing for Rs 7,999 with 3GB RAM and 32GB storage. The performance of the phone will be somewhat throttled as compared to more expensive 4GB RAM phones while 32GB storage means you can only have a handful of apps. Nevertheless, the Realme C2 features a tall, immersive display with a water-drop notch and 720p (HD+) resolution. The entry-level smartphone runs on Android 9 Pie based ColorOS 9 and is powered by the MediaTek Helio P22 SoC with eight cores at 2.0GHz. On the back is a dual camera stack with a 13MP primary sensor and a 2MP depth sensor. The dual camera stack can take portrait photos while the front camera with 5MP resolution can take selfies with AI beauty mode. The Realme C2 supports dual-SIM with dual standby and has a 4,000mAh battery. It's a pretty good deal for a phone priced at Rs 7,999.
