Today at the Realme 3 Pro launch event, where they also commemorated 1 year anniversary of their legacy in India and also their immense success as a youth smartphone brand.
Before the event, there were rumours about the launch of Realme C2, and that happened too. The C2 was launched before the Realme 3 Pro.
To provide a great smartphone to every end of the customer, Realme made a smart move to also upgrade their much successful Realme C series of smartphones.

The design of the C2 has been upgraded with a diamond-cut design which looks cool and is satisfactory for a budget-end smartphone.
The Realme C2 is the first smartphone in this price segment to bear a 6.1-inch HD+ dew drop notch display with a high 89.35% screen-to-body-ratio and 19:5:9 aspect ratio.
Coming to the performance, we generally notice the budget smartphone to be shabby and do lag in day-to-day tasks as well.
In this case, the Realme C2 packs in a 12nm Helio P22 octa-core chipset which is one of the best SoC by MediaTek for a budget smartphone.
Being clocked at a high 2.0 GHz, the smartphone is fast and the optimizations and features help improve the overall user experience,
It is good to see that Realme has kept intact of the dual rear cameras, which this time persists a 13MP primary rear sensor along with 2MP depth sensor.
This helps the Realme C2 to capture some great photos at its price segment and it can even capture 1080p videos as well as Slow-Mo videos, which is truly appreciable move by the company.
Coming to the front camera, in the modern looking dew drop notch we have a 5MP front AI camera that helps you capture good photos including the Bokeh effect even if you have a budget smartphone with you.
Realme’s Chroma Boost feature has also been included in this smartphone to enrich the colours that are captured by the device itself.
Battery & OS
Here the battery has not been compromised at all, the Realme C2 packs in a huge 4000mAh battery that can easily last you day and more.
Much expectedly we have the ad-free Color OS 6 on top of the latest Android 9 Pie which enriches the smartphone on the software front as well.
Due to this we also have the AI Facial Unlock support and the much needed dual VoLTE support along with micro SD card support up to 256GB.
