Realme launched its first ever 6000mAh battery phone in July 2020. The C15 also had a 6.5-inch HD+ IPS display, quad rear cameras and the MediaTek Helio G35 SoC. Now, the OEM is releasing a version of this phone with 1 crucial difference: a Snapdragon processor.

Realme had never managed to launch a phone with what was probably the largest possible capacity at the time (6000mAh) prior to 2020. The first device from the OEM with this spec, the C15, initially launched in Indonesia. With its HD+ waterdrop-notched display, it may have been capable of some extreme screen-on time indeed.

This would have been managed by its Helio G35 SoC. Therefore, it now remains to see how this C15 variant fares in these terms against the new one just introduced by Realme. It swaps out that MediaTek silicon for a Snapdragon 460 instead. Then again, it still charges at 18 watts (W), meaning that it may take quite some time stuck to the wall between uses.

All the rest of its specs remain the same, including its quad rear cameras with their 13MP primary "AI" shooter. It is joined by an 8MP ultrawide lens, a 2MP monochrome sensor and a 2MP for "retro" photography.

The C15 Qualcomm Edition has been launched in India to start off with, and has been set at a regular price of INR 9,999 ($136) for a base model with 3GB of RAM, or INR 10,999 ($148) for a 4GB SKU. These options (finished in Power Silver or Blue) are available from today (October 29, 2020) from Realme's webstore.
