Realme started 2021 with Realme C20 smartphone. Now, the company has officially launched Realme C21 as a new budget smartphone. It has gone official in Malaysia. Here is all the information on its specifications, features, expected price in Nepal and availability.
Realme C21 Overview
Display and Design
The Realme C21 packs a 6.5-inch screen with a mini-drop notch. The LCD panel offers an HD+ resolution of 720 x 1600 pixels. It has a 20:9 aspect ratio. The smartphone offers a screen-to-body ratio of 89.5% with slightly thick bezels on the chin. The company claims that the phone has received TUV Rheinland quality certification.
The smartphone’s rear panel flaunts a fingerprint-resistant Geometric Art Design. It comes in Cross Blue and Cross Black colors. Likewise, the rear panel has a squarish shaped camera island and fingerprint sensor just below it.
Performance and Memory
On the heart lies an octa-core Helio G35 chipset. It is the same mobile platform previously seen on phones like the Realme C11, Realme C12, Realme C15, and Realme C20. The handset comes in two configurations: 3/32GB and 4/64GB variant. To expand storage, you can use a microSD card.
Moreover, the smartphone ships with Realme UI based Android 10 OS.
The camera island houses a 13MP primary camera and a pair of gimmicky 2MP sensors. Similarly, the notch on the front is the house for a 5MP sensor. The camera boasts features like chroma boost, super nightscape, slo-mo and 1080p video recording.
Battery and Miscellaneous
The mobile phone is backed by a 5,000mAh battery which supports only 10W charging. Further, it supports reverse charging.
Other notable features are dual SIM support, 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, microUSB, and a 3.5mm audio jack.
