realme C3 to launch in Malaysia on 3rd March
Considering an entry level smartphone? The realme C3 is launching here in Malaysia on 3rd March 2020. Interestingly, the realme C3 we are getting here in Malaysia isn’t the Indian version which was launched earlier last month. Instead, we are getting a triple camera version that’s available in both India and Thailand.
The version we are getting is probably more interesting, as it comes with a triple camera setup instead of the dual-camera configuration seen on the Indian realme C3. It also comes with a fingerprint scanner, yet another feature that’s lacking on the Indian variant.
Internally, both variants of the realme C3 feature similar specifications with a Helio G70 and 5000 mAh. Up front the 6.5″ HD+ display is also maintained. Here are the specifications of the realme C3 launched in Indonesia.
realme C3 (Indonesia variant) Specs
- Helio G70, octa-core up to 2.0 GHz, 12nm FinFET
- 3GB RAM
- 32GB storage (expandable via microSD)
- 6.5″ HD+ display
- 12MP f/1.8 + 2MP f/2.4 macro + 2MP f/2.4 depth sensor
- 5MP f/2.4 selfie camera
- 5000 mAh battery
- realme UI
- Rp 1 699 000 (~RM520)
Overall, the realme C3 is looking like a strong contender to the realme 5i, and to be honest I do wonder if that was entirely intentional. Also, with four phones already certified by SIRIM, will realme launch all four in one go or will the realme 6 series arrive in a separate event? Well, you can find out for yourself as realme Malaysia will be livestreaming their launch event!
Pokdepinion: The realme C3 definitely has the potential to compete against pricier Snapdragon 665 smartphones…
