Ever since the first announcement of Realme to arrive in Southeast Asia about two months ago, we waited patiently for it. And now, Realme is now officially in Malaysia with the grand launching of the Realme 2 Pro, Realme 2, and also the Realme C1.

Realme is focusing on the youths of today as its mantra is “Power Meets Style” and also “Proud To Be Young”. Of course, that means Realme have to bring smartphones at an affordable price. We’ve talked about these smartphones a little in the past here, but let’s refresh everyone’s memory here because these Realme smartphones are really great for its value.

Realme 2 Pro

The Realme 2 Pro is the company’s smartphone with the highest specs, and it has a very nice design as well.

  • 6.3-inch waterdrop notch design with 2340×1080 pixels in resolution

  • 6.2-inch notched display with 1520×720 pixels in resolution
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 chipset
  • Dual rear-fcaing cameras
    • 13MP f/2.2 + 2MP depth sensor

  • ColorOS 5.1 with Android 8.1 Oreo
  • 4,230mAh battery

Realme 2

From our experience with the Snapdragon 450 chipset on the Galaxy Tab A 10.5, it’s not really that suitable for gaming – but perfectly fine for day-to-day social media and messaging use.

Realme 2

The Realme 2 is available in Diamond Red and Diamond Black color options. This beautiful design is actually from the limited edition OPPO F7. It’s really unique, to be honest.

The Realme 2 will be available starting 24th November at Vivid Concepts, Mobile2Go, 7Mobile, and also DirectD. It’ll be available in two variants and two prices:

  • 3GB RAM + 32GB storage – RM599
  • 4GB RAM + 64GB storage – RM699

Realme C1

Realme C1

For the most affordable option, we have the Realme C1. This smartphone comes with these specs:

  • 6.2-inch notched display with 1520×720 pixels in resolution
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 chipset
  • 2GB RAM
  • 16GB internal storage (expandable with microSD)
  • Dual rear-facing cameras
    • 13MP f/2.2 + 2MP depth sensor
  • 5MP f/2.2 selfie camera
  • 4,230mAh battery
  • ColorOS 5.1 with Android 8.1 Oreo

Realme C1

The core specs of the Realme C1 and the Realme 2 is actually quite similar – however, when we look at the cameras, there are quite a lot of differences. Also, the amount of RAM is different as the Realme C1 only has 2GB of RAM.

We actually think that the Realme C1 is good for the older folks who wants a smartphone to keep in touch with friends and family via social media and messaging apps.

For the price of just RM499, the Realme C1 is a really affordable phone.

Best yet, the Realme C1 will be exclusively available on Lazada only for RM399. This promotion lasts from 22nd November to 22nd December!
