Realme has officially unveiled a device based on the new Snapdragon 460 processor in Bangladesh. The C17 also has quad rear cameras, a 500mAh battery and a 6.5-inch HD+ display with a 90 hertz (Hz) refresh rate. It is priced at US$200 in its first market.

The Snapdragon 460 is a new 11nm 8-core SoC pitched at cost-effective 4G/LTE smartphones by Qualcomm. It is rumored to be the platform destined for the upcoming OnePlus Clover, this OEM's first entry-level phone. A new device may offer an insight as to what it may offer in terms of specs and price.

The C17 uses the 460 to power 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. It also drives a 90Hz LCD screen, which has a punch-hole for an 8MP selfie camera. It runs Realme UI based on Android 10, and has a quad "AI" 13+8+2+2MP rear camera arrangement in a rectangular housing.

The OEM also claims that the C17's 5000mAh battery is rated for up to 34 days - if left on standby this whole time. This 18-watt (W) power-pack is also good for reverse charging. Realme has put this package at 15,990 Bangladeshi taki (BDT; ~US$188).

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
