Realme C11 is launching soon with the new MediaTek Helio G35 and square camera bump

Realme has made its mark for products that offer high value for money, even exceeding other value offerings from brands like Xiaomi. Despite its presence across a wide range of segments, Realme has not stopped catering to its core target group – i.e. of affordable smartphones. In February, Realme launched the entry-level Realme C3 which offers an “excellent gaming performance” thanks to its MediaTek Helio G70. Now, the company is set to release another entry-level device – Realme C11 – with the unannounced MediaTek Helio G35 SoC, an alleged 5000mAh battery, and a fresh change to the typical linear camera design that Realme has been using since last year.


Realme C11 was recently certified by Thailand’s telecom regulatory body NBTC and the certification also confirms the model number RMX2185 for the device. The device has also seems to have been certified by Indian standardization body BIS (as captured by @Sudhanshu1414) but the listing is no longer present on its website. Despite the now absent listing, it could mean that the Realme C11 might also launch in India soon.

Meanwhile, a Malaysian tech news website Lowyat reports that Realme Malaysia has sent out press invites for Realme C11 with an image of the phone in which the camera has been covered by a golden leaf. The invite reportedly also confirms that the Realme C11 will be the first device in the world to be powered by a MediaTek Helio G35 chipset, which hasn’t been announced by MediaTek yet.

Realme Malaysia has also posted about launching a Helio G35-powered phone on its official Facebook and Instagram handles while another post confirms that the Realme C11 is the phone being launched.

The Realme C11 has also reportedly been spotted on China’s CQC certification platform and this listing reveals the battery capacity of 5,000mAh along with 10W of charging. Those are the only details about the device that are confirmed as of now.

Meanwhile, an alleged poster of the Realme C11 is making rounds on social media. This poster was first shared by Twitter account @i_am_myself7 and it shows a square-shaped dual camera setup of the phone by means of a digital render. We are not sure of the legitimacy of this poster but the device in the image here does look similar to the one shared with Realme Malaysian with the local press.

Realme C11 launches in Malaysia on June 30th at 11 AM over a live stream. We will include more details in this story as we learn about the smartphone.
