Realme has successfully launched three brand new devices to extend its budget-oriented C series. Some of the smartphones that are already in this series include Realme C11 and Realme C12 etc. The global launch date was scheduled for the 8th of April and three new smartphones including the Realme C21, Realme C20 and Realme C25 were unveiled. Among these three devices, the Realme C21 was launched in Malaysia in a couple of weeks and now it’s available for global sale. For competing in the cut-throat market, the Realme C21 according to the company is equipped with a stunning processor and a massive battery and multiple other features. Here is a brief summary of the Realme C21 for getting all the details about this newly launched device.

Realme C21 Price in India

There are two variants in which the Realme C21 is available. The first storage variant features 3GB RAM and 32GB internal storage, while the second storage variant features 4GB RAM and 64GB internal storage. The current pricing for the 3GB RAM variant is Rs. 7,999, while the Realme C21 price for the 4GB RAM variant is Rs. 8,999. However; both the variants are sold out on almost every shopping platform.

You can look for a similar device as well which includes the Realme C25 priced at Rs. 9,499 or you may go with the Realme Narzo 30A, which is available under the same price range.

The design language is quite simple that you will expect from an affordable smartphone. On the rear, there is a glass back carrying a square-shaped camera module and fingerprint sensor along with a speaker grille at the bottom. If there is something that is attractive on the rear, it’s the diamond cut pattern.

Looking at the front, there is a usual water-drop display with a thick chin and minimum bezels along the edges. The right side is carrying the power button and the volume rocker and the bottom side features a 3.5mm headphone jack, speaker grille and a Type-C charging port. With 8.9mm of thickness and 190 grams of weight, Realme C21 might appear bulky while holding it for the first time.

Realme C21 carries a 6.5-inch LCD multi-touch display with a resolution of 720 pixels, which is not as per the latest standards, however considering the price tag, it does the job very well. Realme has tried to offer a large viewing area in this entry-level smartphone and provided an 89.5% screen-to-body ratio. Also, the visuals appear crisper with 400nits of maximum brightness.

For an affordable smartphone, it is better to have a capable processor rather than having a dull one. Realme has done the same thing and installed the MediaTek Helio G35 chipset in Realme C21, which is quite excellent for a smartphone priced under 10K as we have seen in the Redmi 9 smartphone. However, the 32GB RAM is something that is a pain in the neck and also the 3GB RAM. Realme has always been known to offer exciting specs at a low price, so the expectation was to see at least 4GB RAM and 64GB internal storage.

Realme C21 runs on Android 10 with Realme UI skin on top. Nowadays all the affordable smartphones are loaded with Android 10 OS, which is sufficient for ensuring a smooth user-interface.

The camera section of Realme C21 features a 13MP AI triple camera setup on the rear, which is quite good for this price range. Speaking of the overall rear camera module, it houses a 13MP primary sensor, a 5MP PDAF lens and a 2MP Macro lens. Realme is offering multiple features with the rear camera setup and those include, Night Mode, HDR, and Ultra macro, AI Beauty, Filter and Chrome Boost. When it comes to video recording, Realme C21 can shoot videos up to 1080 pixels at 30fps with its rear camera setup.

However the selfie camera is of average quality, a 5MP sensor with an aperture of f/2.2 may not be able to capture as per your expectations. The additional features are here also in the front camera section and include Portrait Mode, Timelapse, and Panoramic view, Beauty Mode, HDR, Face Recognition and Filter.

Realme has this habit of loading its smartphones with a strong powerhouse and the same has been done here. Yes, you are getting a massive 5000 mAh battery with Realme C21, which is capable of providing a large battery back for the whole day, so that you don’t have to carry your charger with you all day. However, normal charging is something that might create a problem, as it is not easy to refill such a huge battery within less time. So it is going to take at least 3 to 4 hours to make the battery full. Here the additional feature is that Realme C21 offers a Reverse charging feature and carries a Type-C charging port.

There are two things worth mentioning. First, compared to all other devices available in the market, Realme C21 offers decent competition with its huge 5000 mAh battery, a capable processor and excellent camera setup. But, there are flaws as well and the first one is normal charging while the second one is a meagre selfie camera. Still, the Realme C21 is good to go with, if you are ok with 3GB RAM and 32GB internal storage.
