Alongside the Realme 2 Pro, Realme has launched an entry-level smartphone, namely, the Realme C1. The Realme C1 is the cheapest smartphone with Snapdragon 450 chipset in the country right now, taking the crown from Xiaomi Redmi 5. At Rs 6,999, the Realme C1 offers a notched display, dual rear cameras and a 4230mAh battery. The Realme C1 is basically the Realme 2 with changes to the design and downgraded RAM & internal storage. The C1 rocks a 5MP shooter on the front, which is another change we spotted between both the phones. The Realme 2 also competes with the Honor 7S smartphone which was launched a few days back in India at Rs 6,999. Also, it goes against the Xiaomi Redmi 6A smartphone too.

The best part with the Realme C1 is the company did not cut any corners to reduce the price of the phone. The handset rocks dual cameras of 13MP+2MP on the rear side, along with a 5MP front-facing camera. As always, the camera app comes loaded with a lot of Artificial Intelligence features such as Beautify, bokeh mode for front camera and so on.
