It’s been barely a month since realme launched its entry-level C11 smartphone in the country and the brand is once again updating its C-series portfolio, this time launching the realme C15—a phone they are touting the new battery king.
Before we get into what makes the C15 unique, we need to clear the air on something, particularly the phone’s spec. You see the realme C15 has all the same specs as the realme C11 except on the camera department (more on this later).
Realme is launching two models of the C15, an exclusive online-only model and a standard retail model. The online exclusive model will come with a limited edition realme PH Squad Edition box which features the work of realme doodle
Like the realme C11, the screen on the C15 is a 6.5-inch HD+ (720×1600) display with realme’s mini-drop design with the same 20:9 aspect ratio. The display is good and decently bright like the ones on the C11.
The realme C15 also shares the same processor, sporting an octa-core MediaTek Helios G35. Our review unit has 3GB of RAM and 64 GB of internal storage, though realme has announced that a 4GB + 64GB variant will be available both variants expandable up to 256GB via a dedicated microSD card slot. The realme C15 runs on realme UI based on Android 10.
Design-wise, the realme C15 is a bit better-looking when compared with the C11. The finish is the same as the C11, but the geometric design gives the phone a bit more “wow” factor when compared to its younger sibling. Our unit came in the seagull silver color scheme, but a marine blue color is also available.
Now on to the juicy part, unlike the realme C11, the C15 has a quad-camera setup at the back. Although it has the same 13-megapixel main camera (which was great for its segment by the way), it has a secondary 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera, a 2-megapixel dedicated b/w sensor, and the brand’s new retro sensor which improves portrait shots.
Additionally, the realme C15 is realme’s biggest battery smartphone, packing a massive 6000mAh battery with 18W charging. As a particularly light user myself the phone is still going as of writing, but you can check out the full review of the phone and how the battery fared soon.
The realme C15 retails for PHP 6,490 for the online exclusive 3GB + 64GB variant, and PHP 6,990 for the 4GB + 64 GB variant.
