    The C21Y, a low-cost smartphone from Realme, has been released. The smartphone belongs to the C-series, which is known for entry-level devices with large batteries. Realme C21Y’s is a budget device that runs on Android Go. What Realme has done with C21Y, on the other hand, is a little odd. Realme has chosen a Unisoc CPU for the first time to keep costs down. Let’s check all other features to know what Realme C21Y has to offer. 

    Realme C21Y Price in India 

     Realme C21Y comes in two RAM configurations, including 3GB and 4GB RAM. In addition, they come with a 32GB or 64GB storage capacity. Both of these models are priced at Rs 8,999 and Rs 9,999, respectively, and are available in two different colours. Two colour choices are available and those are Cross Black and Cross Blue. From 12 pm on August 30th, it will be available on Flipkart.

    The design language of Realme C21Y is straightforward, as one would expect from a low-cost smartphone. A plastic back houses a square-shaped camera module and fingerprint sensor, as well as a speaker grille at the bottom. The diamond-cut design is the most eye-catching feature on the back.

    The front has a standard water-drop display with a broad chin and minimal bezels around the corners. The power button and volume rocker are located on the right side, while the bottom side houses a 3.5mm headphone jack, speaker grille, and a Type-C charging connector. With a thickness of 9.1mm and a weight of 200 grammes, the Realme C21Y may look hefty when held for the first time.

    Realme C21Y has a 6.5-inch HD+ LCD with a teardrop-style notch on top. The display has a max brightness of 400 nits. Also, the display features a screen to body ratio of 88.7% and carries a 720p resolution only. There is a normal refresh rate and you can expect an average visual experience. 

    Realme C21Y is powered by an octa-core Unisoc T610 CPU manufactured on 12-nanometer technology. The CPU is coupled with a Mali G52 GPU. The phone has 3GB or 4GB of RAM, as well as up to 64GB of storage. You may expand storage by inserting a microSD card. The Realme C21Y runs the Realme UI, which is based on Android 10. Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, a Micro-USB connection, and a 3.5mm headphone connector are all available for connectivity.

    Realme C21Y features three cameras on the rear. A 13-megapixel primary camera, a 2-megapixel macro camera, and a 2-megapixel mono-lens camera are included. Realme is boasting AI-powered camera capabilities for the C21Y. A 5-megapixel front camera with AI Beauty features is housed within the notch.

    Realme has a history of packing its smartphones with powerful batteries, and the same has been done here. Yes, the Realme C21Y comes with a big 5000 mAh battery capable of delivering a substantial battery backup for the entire day. Normal charging, on the other hand, maybe difficult because it is difficult to replenish such a large battery in such a short period of time. Here the additional feature is that the Realme C21Y offers a Reverse charging feature and carries a Type-C charging port.

    The only two features that are in favour of the Realme C212Y are the 5000 mAh battery and a 13MP triple rear camera. The rest of the features including a mediocre processor, normal charging, 720-pixel display, poor selfie camera make this unfit for purchase given the present competition.
