Realme C35, company’s next affordable phone with Realme 9 Pro-like design, is launching this week

Realme has announced that it will be launching its next phone in the affordable C-series later this week. It is the C35 that is in the pipeline, and it looks very similar to the Realme 9 Pro series that is coming to India on February 16. The camera bump on the back of the Realme C35, as seen in teasers the company is sharing on Facebook, has the same camera cutouts as the Realme 9 Pro and 9 Pro Plus. But that is where the similarities probably end.

Slated for launch on February 10, the Realme C35 will have very modest specifications. Realme has confirmed that its next C-series phone will use a Unisoc T616 processor, meaning it will be good enough for light smartphone users. The handset, model number RMX3511, will come with 4GB of RAM and run on Android 11 software, obviously with Realme UI skin on top. The phone will come with a 50-megapixel camera system and a 5000mAh battery inside. Posters also reveal a side-mounted fingerprint sensor on the phone.

While the official teasers reveal only so much, previous listings of the phone have shared additional specifications.

For instance, the listing on the TUV Rheinland certification website revealed the Realme C35 will use 18W fast charging on the battery. The selfie camera on the phone may come with an 8-megapixel sensor, and use 128GB of internal storage.

Realme has confirmed that the C35 will come in two colours; a shade of black and a shade of light green. The design of the phone shows diverging ray patterns from the camera module. The display of the phone will have a teardrop notch and a chin thicker than the rest of the bezels. The phone’s rounded corners make it look premium, while the flat back panel gives it a nice touch.

The Realme C35 is launching in Thailand on February 10, so if you are expecting it in India, you may have to wait for some time. That is only if Realme decides to launch the phone in India in the near future. For now, Realme is getting ready for the launch of 9 Pro series in India. The Realme 9 Pro series includes the 9 Pro and the 9 Pro Plus, both confirmed as 5G phones. Realme 9 Pro+ will come with a Dimensity 920 processor, a Sony IMX766 sensor, and a colour-shifting design. The details of the Realme 9 Pro, on the other hand, are not officially out yet.
