There are four camera sensors at the rear of this latest Realme phone.
- A 13MP main camera
- An 8MP ultra wide angle camera
- A 2MP macro camera
- A BnW sensor
The camera module is very similar to the square-like one seen on the Realme C11. For good quality selfies, you get an 8MP AI Beauty camera housed in the screen notch. The phone carries all the standard Realme features, like Super Nightscape and Chroma Boost, along with Auto Flash, Digital Zoom, Touch to focus and Face detection.
Four brilliant cameras and good core specifications is surely a steal in this price range. But what if you don’t have all the money to buy it? You can always buy this smartphone on EMI with the scores of loan options available in the market.
Despite the excellent four rear cameras, good processor, latest Android OS, the Realme C15 doesn’t use any of those things as its USP. Instead, the USP is its mega power 6000 mAh battery- and with good reason. Smartphone users have been asking for this overhaul in budget phones for a while, and Realme has heard them. That’s not all, you also get an 18W fast charger in the box.
Connectivity options include Bluetooth v5.0, Wi-Fi, 4G, Glonass, GPS, and a 3.5mm headphone jack. Onboard sensors include proximity sensor, ambient light sensor, rear fingerprint scanner, and magnetic induction sensor.
