The phone also comes with innovative image modes and filters for a better camera experience.
In addition, the realme C55 has up to 16GB of dynamic RAM and 256GB of Storage, which is the largest storage in the segment, and supports up to 1TB of memory expansion. The phone also features the fastest 33W SUPERVOOC charge in the segment, which can charge to 100% in just 63 minutes. The C55 also boasts a massive 5000mAh battery, providing a worry-free charging experience.

The realme C55 is masterfully crafted with the Sunshower design, inspired by natural elements and available in two colors: Sunshower and Rainy Night.

The C55 also has a 6.72-inch full screen with FHD+ resolution and a 90Hz refresh rate, resulting in a more comfortable visual experience.
realme has also introduced Android’s first Mini Capsule with the realme C55. The Mini Capsule can smartly adapt to the display and can be wrapped around the punch-hole camera cutout.

Users can later experience two more functional scenarios of Data usage and Steps stats that require OTA to be realized. With Mini Capsule, users can get notifications for a better daily convenience.
