Realme C12 and Realme C15 with MediaTek’s Helio G35 SoC, 6000mAh battery launched in India
Following the launch of the Realme C11 earlier this year in June, Chinese OEM Realme has now launched two new budget devices in India — the Realme C12 and Realme C15. The latest devices in Realme’s C series feature MediaTek’s Helio G35 chipset, coupled with up to 4GB of RAM and 64GB of onboard storage. The devices follow the same design language that Realme introduced with the C11, featuring a square camera module on the back and a textured geometric finish.

The latest budget devices from Realme feature 6.5-inch HD+ mini-drop displays, with an aspect ratio of 20:9 and 88.7% screen-to-body ratio. Both the devices pack in a massive 6,000mAh battery, with support for 18W fast charging and reverse wired charging. While the new C series devices don’t look to be a massive upgrade over their predecessor, Realme has made some major improvements in the camera department.
The Realme C12 features a triple camera setup, with a 13MP primary camera, a 2MP monochrome sensor, and a 2MP macro camera on the back. Over on the front, the device features a single 5MP selfie shooter. On the other hand, the Realme C15 is the first device in the budget C series that features a quad-camera setup. It includes a 13MP primary camera, an 8MP ultra-wide camera, a 2MP monochrome sensor, and a 2MP retro lens. The device also features an 8MP selfie camera over on the front.
Both the devices run Realme UI based on Android 10, which includes a couple of new battery life optimizations to help the 6,000mAh battery on the devices last even longer.
Along with the new C series devices, Realme has also launched a new pair of wired earphones called the Realme Buds Classic, which has a half in-ear style design and large 14.2mm drivers. In keeping with its goal of becoming a tech lifestyle brand, the company has also launched a Realme-branded T-shirt for fans.
During the launch event, the company also announced its upcoming Realme Youth Days sale, which will start from August 28th and offer up to 60% discounts on smartphones and accessories from the company.
