Realme C1 2019 Android smartphone, announced January 2019, features a 6.2 inches display with a wide notch, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 chipset, 2GB/3GB RAM options, 32GB internal memory, 5-megapixel selfie camera, rear dual camera, and 4230mAh battery.
The C1 2019 is a mid-range Android phone running Android 8.1 Oreo in a plastic shell. It comes in two variants. One has 2GB RAM, while the other has 3GB RAM. Both of them are equipped with 32GB storage. Everything else, including memory card support for microSD card of up to 256GB, is the same for both versions.
The Realme C1 2019’s large 6.2-inch display has a prominent notch that houses the 5-megapixel selfie camera and other sensors. There is no fingerprint sensor included. The camera is equipped with Intelligent AI Beauty feature, portrait mode, and PDAF.
The combination of the Snapdragon 450 processor and the big 4,230mAh battery should produce great battery life for all but the most demanding users. Fast battery charging would have been a welcome addition to the C1 2019. Unfortunately, that is not available on the phone.
Also, Realme C1 2019 is 4G LTE enabled, so you can use it with the fastest mobile networks available. There are only 7 4G LTE bands supported by the phone though, so in making a buying decision, you have to check to be sure that your 4G network is one of the supported few. Otherwise you may end up with a 4G phone but be unable to use 4G internet.
The C1 2019 looks like a good option for consumers looking for those in search of a budget smartphone. The Realme brand has been making good strides in the smartphone market since its launch in 2018. The package comes down to about $105 and $120 for the corresponding variants.
