realme has officially unveiled its latest mid-range smartphone, the realme C55, which is slated to first launch in Indonesia on 7 March 2023. It’s also worth mentioning that the device is the first from the brand to feature its Dynamic Island-like feature that’s officially known as Mini Capsule (pictured above), which is leagues better than the initially proposed name of “realme Island”.
Based on the product’s landing page on realme Indonesia’s website, the new realme C55 is shown to feature a 6.72-inch flat display with FHD+ resolution, 90 Hz refresh rate, and a top-centred cutout for its front-facing camera. Obviously, the latter is where the brand’s new Mini Capsule feature will be located, which is suggested in a separate teaser to be more vibrant and lively than its Apple counterpart.
Meanwhile, on the back of the device is a vertically arranged dual camera setup, and a rear panel with a brushed metal finish that’s available in either Sunshower or Rainy Night colours. Additionally, it also comes with a 3.5 mm headphone jack, and has a thickness of only 7.89 mm.
Specifications-wise, it is revealed that the C55 is equipped with a MediaTek Helio G88 chipset, as well as up to 8 GB of RAM and up to 256 GB of internal storage, with virtual RAM expansion support of up to a total of 16 GB. Besides that, also onboard is a 5,000 mAh battery with 33 W fast charging support, and a 64 MP primary camera with AI functionality.
The new handset’s pricing and availability will only be announced by realme during the launch in Indonesia next week. Interestingly, it appears that the country won’t be the only one in Southeast Asia to see the phone’s debut, as we’ve recently found a listing for the C55 in SIRIM’s database through MCMC’s Check Your Label app.
In the entry, it is revealed that the device (model number RMX3710) is registered under the brand’s local representative, DTL Malaysia Sdn Bhd, and had received its approval from the authority last month on 17 February 2023. With this, we can expect the new realme C55 to also launch in Malaysia sometime soon.
