The Realme C12 and Realme C15 have been introduced in India, not as well prolonged right after Realme launched the C11 (Evaluation) roughly a month back. The latest GST hike in India has impacted all smartphone producers, forcing them to increase rates. In Realme’s situation, this still left some significant rate gaps in its spending plan portfolio, that these two new designs will fill. The Realme C12 is priced at Rs. eight,999 for 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage, while Realme C15 is priced at Rs. 9,999 for 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage, and Rs. ten,999 for 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage.
Now, we will be checking out the Realme C12, which is not as well different from the C11. This usually means it also has a lot in widespread with the Realme C3 and Narzo 10A. The principal variances are to do with a few of locations such as the battery and cameras. The Realme C12 and the Realme C15 are not meant to replace any of the present C-collection telephones, as Realme emphatically tells us, but rather complement the existing designs.
I to begin with planned on providing you my first impressions of both telephones, with each other, given that they are so identical. Sadly, Realme has slightly delayed the greater priced product, so it will be just the C12 for today.
The Realme C12 ships in the regular yellow box that we’ve occur to assume from Realme telephones. A single point that’s lacking in the box is a situation. I also located the charger to be unusually substantial, for just a 10W device. The principal highlight of the Realme C12 is its six,000mAh battery. This is 1,000mAh a lot more than what you get in the Realme C11, due to which the C12 is comparatively thicker and heavier.
The all-plastic physique feels sturdy, and as predicted, Realme has a new sample for the back again of the cellular phone. The textured gradient complete can help with grip and does not bring in fingerprints. I been given the Energy Blue trim, and this cellular phone is also readily available in Energy Silver.
The Realme C12 has a triple-slot tray, for two Nano-SIMs and a microSD card. There is certainly a Micro-USB port at the base, signifying this phone’s spending plan focusing on, alongside with a headphone jack and a speaker. There is certainly a capacitive fingerprint sensor on the back again, which feels a tiny out of get to, even for my comparatively prolonged index finger.
The show is identical to what you get on the Realme C11. It truly is a six.5-inch Hd+ (1,600×720) panel, with a thick chin underneath and a waterdrop notch up top. I located the colors to be decent for a cellular phone at this rate, but the brightness seemed a little bit lower. Viewing angles never appear to be very vast, as the sides of the show darken if you tilt the cellular phone even slightly off-axis.
You get the similar MediaTek Helio G35 SoC in the Realme C12 as you do in the Realme C11. Fortunately, the C12 has 3GB of LPDDR4X RAM (compared to 2GB in the C11), so basic utilization really should be fewer laggy. There is certainly only just one configuration readily available, and it also has 32GB of storage. So far, the cellular phone has been pretty responsive in my encounter, but the interface is surely not snappy. It’ll be exciting to see how it holds up at the time I load plenty of apps and facts.
The Realme C12 operates on Realme UI 1., which is based on Android ten. Bloatware is a little bit fewer this time, with the C12 only obtaining Realme’s and Google’s suites of apps, alongside with a number of 3rd-bash kinds such as Amazon and Facebook. Realme has also absent with Google’s dialler and messages app, alternatively of its personal. This is a growing pattern we are seeing of late even from BBK’s other smartphone brand names such as Vivo, Oppo, and OnePlus.
The style of the digital camera module on the Realme C12 is identical to that of the C11, but alternatively of two sensors, the C12 gives a few. In addition to the 13-megapixel principal and 2-megapixel depth digital camera, you also get a 2-megapixel macro digital camera. In the entrance, it really is a 5-megapixel selfie digital camera the similar as on the Realme C11. I’ll be testing the cameras over the future 7 days or so, but I wouldn’t be stunned if the effects are identical to what we acquired from the C11.
The Realme C12, alongside with the Realme C15, appear to be just minimal variations of the Realme C11 but positioned strategically to shut the rate gaps amongst the C-collection and Realme’s six-collection. There is certainly also Realme’s Narzo 10A, which has some rate overlap with the new designs. It may well not have as significant a battery but it does offer you a faster SoC. Does the larger battery of the Realme C12 make it worth the Rs. eight,999 rate tag? I will have a clear response for you at the time I am carried out examining it, so keep tuned to Gizmos 360.
