As expected through official teasers, the Realme C11 budget smartphone has been made official in Malaysia. It is the world's second smartphone to feature MediaTek Helio G35 processor. The honor of being the first went to Redmi 9C which was announced mere hours before Realme's event. It also happens to its direct competitor in the market with similar features and pricing.
The Realme C11 sports a 6.52-inch HD+ (1600 x 720 pixels) display with a notch and 20:9 aspect ratio. The choice of processor is MediaTek's Helio G35 which comes with IMG PowerVR GE8320 GPU. The phone has 2GB of RAM and 32GB of onboard storage with support for microSD cards up to 256GB.
There is a dual-camera setup on the back panel that includes a 13-megapixel primary camera with f/2.2 aperture and a 2-megapixel depth sensor. On the front, it has a 5-megapixel sensor housed within the notch. The whole package is powered by a 5,000mAh battery and it will ship with Android 10 layered with Realme's own custom skin.
The Realme C11 has been priced at RM 429 (about $100) for the 2GB/32GB model. It will be available in Pepper Gray and Mint Green color variants with sales starting July 7th.
