New variant of Realme C3 announced with triple cameras and fingerprint reader
Earlier this month, Realme unveiled a new entry-level smartphone dubbed Realme C3, which is currently available in India. Now the company has announced a new version of the C3, which comes with an extra camera on the back.
The Indian version of the Realme C3 features a dual camera setup on the back, comprising 12MP main and 2MP depth sensor modules. The new version retains these snappers but comes with a 2MP macro unit that lets you take close-up shots of objects from as close as 4cm.
Another difference between the Indian variant and the new model is that the latter comes with a fingerprint reader on the back, which Realme claims can unlock the smartphone in 0.27 seconds.
The Realme C3 is offered in three memory configurations – 2GB/32GB, 3GB/32GB, and 4GB/64GB. It also has a microSD card slot, allowing storage expansion by up to 256GB.
The rest of the specs of the new version include a Helio G70 SoC, Android 10-based Realme UI, 6.5″ HD+ LCD, 5MP selfie camera, and a 5,000 mAh battery with reverse charging support.
The triple camera-toting Realme C3, like the dual camera version, has two color options – Blazing Red and Frozen Blue. It’s priced at THB3,999 ($130/€120) for the 3GB/32GB model in Thailand and will go on sale from February 20 through Lazada and Shopee.
