The release of Realme C2 in PH is a testament to how brands are willing to innovate and deliver attractive phones with packed hardware at an affordable price. Its release this June certainly raised the bar as to how entry-level smartphones should be; and so far, Realme C2 is the brand’s most affordable smartphone to date. If news are any indication, the Realme C2 banks on its massive battery power and other appealing features that make it a worthy investment. To help you decide, here is Realme C2‘s spec-by-spec rundown:
Realme C2’s geometric, diamond-cut design on its back is its main identifier and it comes in Diamond Blue or Diamond Black. Its matte-like finish at the back gives it a fresh, unique design. It also sports the classic dewdrop display with thin bezels. It doesn’t have a fingerprint sensor but can be unlocked via pattern, PIN, or face unlock method. The power button is found on the right while the volume control and sim slot are found on the left. At the bottom of the sturdy-built frame is a 3.5mm headphone jack, microUSB port, speaker grille, and microphone. It weighs in at 166 g and is 6.07 x 2.90 x 0.33 inches in dimension.

Realme C2 is powered by a MediaTek MT6762 Helio P22 processor paired with either 3GB RAM + 32GB storage or 2GB RAM + 16GB storage. These two combined makes for faster AI-support in applications and better connectivity. It runs on Android v9.0 (Pie) layered with the brand’s own ColourOS 6 Lite.
