Realme has introduced new C12 and C15 smartphones in India’s most crowded budget segment. There are more than enough smartphones already in the segment but that does not stop brands, such as Realme, to expand the market even more with its smartphones. The idea is to make the smartphone available to customers at a difference of every 500-1,000 rupees. Both Realme smartphones come close on the heels of the C11 budget smartphone. The smartphone introduced the MediaTek Helio G35 processor which is a slightly modified version of the Helio P35 processor.
Realme C15 and Realme C12 launched in India on August 18 at 12:30 pm through an online event. The company’s C series includes two new models Realme C1, Realme C2, Realme C3, and Realme C11, which are all budget-friendly smartphones. The following suits will be Realme C15 and Realme C12 with their impressive specifications and affordable price tag. Both Realme C15 and Realme C12 have made their debut in Indonesia, with the former coming in late July and Realme C12 making its debut last week.
