Following its brief promotional campaign, the sequel to the still-recent Realme C11, the C15 has just been unveiled in Indonesia and is expected to arrive next month in Pakistan after Eid. For our readers out of the loop, the C15 builds on the C11’s build and design. It’s more polished, aesthetic, and offers a handful of robust features to boot.
To house its incredible 6,000 mAh battery, the Realme C15 has a hefty build: it’s 9.8mm thick and weighs 209g. The cell charges over a microUSB port, powered by 18W fast charging. It doubles as a battery bank and can last up to 57 days on standby and 60 hours of music streaming.
Realme has also preloaded the ‘Super Power Saving Mode’ onto it which promises 107 WhatsApp messaging only with 5% of charge left. The handset is next in line for the Pakistani market and is expected to arrive with a modest of price.
The design of C15 by Realme is all too familiar if you’ve been following the story. You get a squarish camera island, a polished exterior shell, and a standard capacitive fingerprint reader that blends into the panel. Available in the muted Seagull Silver and the Marine Blue, it would be a nice addition to the Oppo price list.
A quad-camera is bound inside the squircle housing, featuring a 13MP primary lens, a 2MP B&W sensor, a 119° ultra-wide lens and a 2MP retro camera. For better low-light shots, toggle the ‘Super Nightscape’ and the ‘Portrait Mode’ and ‘AI Beauty’ when you’re taking selfies with its 8MP selfie camera.
The front-camera is nestled inside a drop-notch that extends down into the screen. It’s a 6.5” panel that fills a 20:9 aspect ratio and an 88.7% aspect ratio — delivering an HD+ resolution.
MediaTek’s Helio G35 chipset handles processing, augmented by ‘HyperEngine’ technology aimed at gaming. The CPU inside has eight cores and is clocked at 2.3GHz — advertised to be best in its class.
Realme pairs it with 3GB/4GB of RAM and 64GB/128GB of native storage (further expandable with a dedicated microSD card slot). The Realme C15 is being rolled out in Indonesia, but it should land in Pakistan in August, starting anywhere from Rs. 20,000 to 23,000.
