The Realme C3 is to be the first phone to rock the new Helio G70 gaming SoC
The Realme C2's successor has broken cover on Twitter. This new phone may be particularly interesting as it is probably the first to be designed around the MediaTek Helio G70. The Taiwanese manufacturer has made this new G-series SoC in order to bring features such as its HyperEngine gaming technology to new tiers of the smartphone market.
The C3 itself is to be a dual rear camera device, much like the phone it is to replace soon. These sensors will make up a 12+2MP module; however, the main lens has an f/1.8 aperture, whereas that of the C2 is f/2.2. Therefore, the newer model may be able to make better use of its ambient light compared to its predecessor.
This 2020 phone will also run the new Realme UI out of the box, something it will have in common with the higher-end X50 5G. Realme has also disclosed that the C3 will have a 6.5-inch "mini-drop" display, 3-4GB RAM options and a 5000mAh battery. However, it has not mentioned pricing or availability for it yet: we may need to wait for its February 6, 2020 launch event to find out.
