Realme has launched a new C-series smartphone named Realme C21 in Malaysia. It is a budget segment smartphone with none of the fancy features that you might be seeing in other devices. The main highlight of the phone is its big battery and incidentally, the phone looks and offers similar things as the Realme C20.
The Realme C21 sports a 6.5-inch HD+ (1600 x 720 pixels) LCD display with a tiny waterdrop notch. The phone is packed with a MediaTek Helio G35 processor which is pretty common among devices at this price point. It has a single configuration option of 3GB RAM and 32GB onboard storage. It also offers microSD card support for storage expansion needs.
The back panel has a big square-shaped camera module that houses a 13-megapixel primary sensor and two 2-megapixel sensors. There is also an LED flash that should help users in struggling light conditions. The front camera on the phone is a 5-megapixel sensor. The whole package is powered by a 5,000mAh battery with 10W fast charging. The phone runs Realme UI based on Android 10 as an operating system and also has a 3.5mm headphone jack.
Realme has priced the Realme C21 at MYR 499 (about $123) for the sole 3GB/32GB variant. It will be available in Blue and Black color variants in the country.
