The sub-8K smartphone market is slowly picking up some pace. After Redmi, Realme has now announced the launch date of its upcoming entry-level C-series smartphone. The new Realme C30s handset will arrive on September 14 and is expected to offer some notable features that should enhance the smartphone user experience of budget users.
The second smartphone in the Realme C30 line-up, the C30s will flaunt a 6.5-inch 720p resolution display with a dew-drop notch design. The screen used produces 16.7 million colors and offers an 88.7% screen-to-body ratio, which should offer a decent viewing experience.
The entry-level handset will be powered by a beefier 5,000mAh battery cell that should easily deliver two-day battery life on one full charge, thanks to HD+ resolution. The smartphone also features a 3.5mm audio jack and comes with a Type-C charging port. The Realme C30s will come with 10W charging support.
The entry-level Realme C30s flaunts a sleek design with flat edges and will be available in two color options- black and blue. As for security, the budget handset will boast a side-mounted fingerprint scanner.
Realme hasn’t shared any details on the underlying chipset, RAM, and storage options for the entry-level handset.
