Today we are going to look at the Realme C12, which is not much different from the C11. This means that the new phone will closely match the Realme C3 and Narzo 10A. The main difference will be in some areas like the battery and the cameras. We had initially planned to give you our first take on both phones together as they are almost identical. Unfortunately, Realme has delayed the shipment of the higher-priced model, so here today we will only give you our first impressions of the Realme C12.
Realme C12 comes in a standard yellow box. This time the company has made the case (cover) disappear from the budget phone case. Apart from this, a great charger and phone are available in it. The main feature of the Realme C12 is its 6,000 mAh battery. This is 1000 mAh more than the capacity found in the Realme C11, so the C12 is comparatively thicker and heavier.
The all-plastic body feels sturdy. Realme has given a new pattern to the back of the phone. The texture helps make it easier to grip and captures fewer fingerprints. We have received the Power Blue variant and the phone is also available in Power Silver.
The Realme C12 has a triple slot tray for two Nano-SIMs and a microSD card. At the bottom there is a Micro-USB port, a headphone jack and a speaker are included. There’s a capacitive fingerprint sensor on the back, which may require a longer finger to reach easily.
The display is the same as what you get on the Realme C11. It’s a 6.5-inch HD+ (1600 x 720) panel with a thick chin at the bottom and a waterdrop notch at the top. Screen colors were decent for a budget phone, but brightness was a bit low. The viewing angle is not very wide. The edges of the screen appear black if you change the angle of the phone even slightly.
You get the same MediaTek Helio G35 processor included in the Realme C11 in the Realme C12. Fortunately, the C12 has 3 GB of RAM, so general use should be a bit faster than the C11. You get 32GB of storage. So far we’ve had a good experience, but the interface definitely doesn’t feel very fast. It will be interesting to see how this camera performs when loading a lot of apps and data.
Realme C12 runs on Realme UI 1.0 which is currently based on Android 10. PUAs are a bit less on the phone right now. Realme is using Google’s messaging and dialer app instead of its own. This is a growing trend that we are also seeing at BBK in other smartphone brands like Vivo, Oppo and OnePlus.
The camera module of the Realme C12 is similar to the C11, but instead of two sensors, it has three. It has a 13-megapixel main sensor, a 2-megapixel depth sensor, and a 2-megapixel macro camera lens. A 5-megapixel front-facing camera is included for selfies and video calls. It is similar to Realme C11. The performance of the camera will be known only after its test. You won’t have to wait long to read the review.
The Realme C15 and Realme C12 appear to be a slight variation on the Realme C11, but they are good options to fill the huge price gap between the C-series and the Realme 6-series. Realme also has the Narzo 10A, which is priced accordingly. the newer models. Its battery is no bigger than the new model, but it comes with a faster processor. Does the inclusion of a larger battery in the Realme C12 make it worth the Rs 8999 price tag? We’ll have a clear answer to this question once we go through it in depth, so keep an eye out for Gadgets 360.
