realme Kenya to launch the realme C12 alongside the realme 7i

Launching on 10th November...

Update: realme 7i Review

Just a few months of making its entry in Kenya, realme has moved to build presense in the market especially among smartphone lovers with the launch of a number of devices including the realme C11, realme C3, realme C15 and the realme 6.

A while back, the company announced the coming of the realme 7i, the first sub-20k device with a 90Hz display in the market. Now the company says that alongside the realme 7i, we will see the realme C12, a device we believe will sit in between the realme C11, and the realme C15 in price. The processor, displays, and batteries look to be the same as the realme C15’s.

The company will livestream the launch of the realme 7i on its socials and on YouTube. And it has said that the major things eager Kenyans should look out for are: the camera, the RAM, the battery and storage all at an affordable price.

The realme C12, we estimate, could cost around KES. 12,000 for 3GB RAM, 32GB storage while keeping the specs from the realme C15. The large 6000mAh battery looks to be the standard realme is setting with its budget devices, and we can’t wait to see it become a standard on all devices around the same price point.
