The C3 does exactly this.”

The C3, which is available to purchase from 9th April 2020, includes:

Massive 5000mAH Battery

The C3’s 5000mAH battery lasts for 30 days on standby*. Whether streaming 20.8 hours of online movies or making 43.9 hours of calls, the opportunities for entertainment are endless.

Stylish Design & Impressive Display 

The C3’s impressive 6.5″ HD+ mini drop display is one of the biggest within the entry-level market. With this screen, users can make the most of an enhanced viewing experience when watching movies, playing games or scrolling through social media.

Triple AI Camera

To capture every moment in picture-perfect quality, the realme C3 sports a 12MP+2MP+2MP triple rear camera setup. The rear main camera features a F1.8 large aperture and a large 1.25μm pixel size, ensuring impressive image quality, even in low light environments. Plus, with up to 4 x zoom and a 4CM super macro lens, users can capture intricate detail both near and afar.

To ensure every image pops out of the screen, the C3 also features PDAF autofocus, HDR mode and Chroma Boost. This pixel-level mapping algorithm restores image brightness and colour, providing better dynamic range, screen contrast and vivid colours. If stunning photography isn’t enough, the triple camera setup allows for 1080p video shooting, as well as slow-motion capture at 120 fps.
