After unveiling its C15 last month, Realme brought an even more affordable version of its C-series with the new Realme C12 launched in Indonesia. It carries plenty of similarities with the C15 including a 6.5-inch IPS LCD with HD+ resolution, gigantic 6,000 mAh battery and the Helio G35 chipset.
The key differences between the two come in the camera department where the new C12 comes with two 2MP auxiliary cameras alongside the main 13MP shooter. The selfie camera housed in the waterdrop notch is also down to 5MP instead of the 8MP on the C15. The Helio G35 SoC is paired with 3GB RAM and 32GB storage, which can be further expanded via microSD.
The phone’s key selling point – its 6,000 mAh battery comes with slower 10W charging this time around though it still retains the useful reverse charging capabilities via cable. The software side is covered by Realme UI which sits atop of Android 10.
The Realme C12 comes in Marine Blue and Coral Red colors with sales tipping off on August 16. Pricing is set at IDR 1,899,000 ($128) for the sole 3/32GB trim though a limited flash sale gets the price down to IDR 1,749,000 ($117). Both the Realme C12 and C15 are expected to debut in India next week on August 18.
