As it turns out, Realme 2 Pro was not the only new phone from OPPO’s sub-brand, Realme. Another new model called C1 made an appearance alongside Realme 2 Pro earlier this week and at a glance of the specs, this phone seems like a marathon runner.
To start, the Realme C1 has got a pretty large battery, rated at 4230mAh. Adding to that is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 processor, which makes getting the phone to last a day an easy thing to do. The C1 will also be running ColorOs 5.1 overlaying Android 8.1 out of the box.
That aside, it’s got a 6.2-inch 1520 x 720 display, a 5MP front-facing camera, and a 13MP + 2 MP rear camera setup. You can also use the front-facing camera to unlock the phone.
The C1 has 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage, so don’t expect to be able to strain it too much. It does support a microSD card of up to 256GB, which you’ll likely need due to the internal storage limits.
On the subject of microSD cards, it looks like the C1 can have one while also supporting two nano-SIM cards. Other connectivity options include Bluetooth 4.2 and a Micro-USB port.
The Realme C1 has two colour options available – Ocean Blue and Deep Black. It’s priced at INR6999 (~RM399), but this may change some time down the line as its page on the Realme site states that this is an “introductory price for Diwali season.”
We don’t know when the phone will make its way to Malaysia, but hopefully, it will be brought in with the introductory discount if the phone reaches us before Deepavali.
