realme C12 Hands-On
Recently, realme launched a new addition to its C-series, the realme C15, and now it’s taking a leap again with the new realme C12, which also has a huge 6,000mAh battery, a large display, and three cameras at the back. Let’s check it out!
The Realme C12 comes in two colors, namely Coral Red and Marine Blue. The design is identical to the realme C15 so there’s nothing we haven’t seen before here.
At the back, we have a triple camera camera set-up consisting of a 13MP main, 2MP black and white sensor, and a 2MP macro lens. You’ll also find some Realme branding here, as well as the fingerprint scanner.
Checking out the screen, we get a 6.5-inch HD+ LCD display with an 88.7% screen-to-body ratio, protected by Corning Gorilla Glass. It uses a mini-drop notch at the center to house the 5MP front camera and call speaker.
Sitting on the right side of the device are the power and volume buttons.
Meanwhile, located on the left is the dual nano-SIM tray with a dedicated micro SD card slot that can support up to 256GB.
Meanwhile at the bottom are the 3.5mm audio jack, microphone, micro USB port, and loudspeaker.
Powering the device is a MediaTek Helio G35 processor coupled with an PowerVR GE8320 GPU. The realme C12 is available in one memory configuration only — 3GB of RAM + 32GB of storage.
For software, it runs on Android 10 skinned with realme UI. And for power, we get a huge 6,000mAh battery with 10W charging.
As for camera quality, we’ll dive deeper into that in our full review, but for now, take a look at these sample photos.
The realme C12 is available for PHP 5,990 starting September 3, 2020 at realme stores nationwide.
