Shortly after the launch of the new MediaTek Helio G25 and Helio G35 chipsets late last month, Chinese OEMs Xiaomi and Realme launched a couple of devices powered by the new SoCs. Xiaomi launched the new Redmi 9A and Redmi 9C, featuring large 5,000mAh batteries and HD+ displays with a waterdrop-style notch, while Realme launched the Realme C11 with similar specifications. All three devices were initially launched in the Malaysian market, but Realme has now launched its latest budget-friendly device in India.

As mentioned earlier, the Realme C11 is powered by MediaTek’s new Helio G35 SoC and features a design that resembles the recently launched Redmi 9C. It features a 6.5-inch HD+ display with a resolution of 1600×720 pixels and a waterdrop-style notch to house the selfie camera. Over on the back, the device has a square camera module, which packs in a 13MP f/2.2 primary sensor, a 2MP depth sensor, and an LED flash. For selfies, the device has a 5MP f/2.4 camera on the front.
The Helio G35 chipset on the device is coupled with 2GB of LPDDR4x RAM and 32GB of onboard storage, which can be expanded further using the dedicated micro SD card slot. The device packs in a massive 5,000mAh battery, which features support for 10W fast wired charging and reverse wired charging.
In terms of ports, the device features a micro USB port for charging and data syncing, along with a 3.5mm headphone jack. Other connectivity options include Bluetooth 5.0 and 802.11 b/g/n WiFi. On the software front, the device runs Realme UI based on Android 10. Realme also claims that the device is splash resistant, but it doesn’t come with any official IP rating for the same. The device doesn’t feature a fingerprint scanner, but it does include support for face unlock for biometric authentication.
Along with the Realme C11, the company has launched a new power bank in the Indian market, which packs in a 10,000mAh battery and supports Realme’s 30W Dart Charge technology. The power bank features a USB Type-A port and a USB Type-C port for charging your devices, along with an LED indicator to show the current battery level, and a power button. While both the USB ports support 30W output, the USB Type-C port also includes support for 30W input to help you fast charge the power bank.
Thanks to the 30W Dart Charge support, the new power bank is capable of charging a Realme 6 from 0-65% in just 30 minutes. The power bank also features a low current mode that can be used to charge AIoT devices like wireless earphones and smartwatches. Along with Realme’s Dart Charge tech, the power bank is compatible with other popular fast charging standards like VOOC, SuperVOOC 2.0, Warp, and Qualcomm’s Quick Charge, which will allow users to fast charge supported devices from manufacturers like OPPO and OnePlus.
