The Realme C12 weighs around 209g and is quite a chunky phone. There’s a ‘trapezium gradient’ design on the back which looks nice and doesn’t attract a lot of fingerprints. The Realme C12 is said to have a fire-resistant back cover and is also splash resistant. The Realme C12 has a 6.5-inch HD+ LCD screen, with a resolution of 1600×720 pixels and an unspecified version of Corning’s Gorilla Glass. Colours looked decent to me, but the quality of the panel is pretty average.
Realme has used the MediaTek Helio G35 SoC in the C12, which is not the most powerful processor in this price segment. The Realme C12 is only available in one configuration, with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage priced at Rs. 8,999. Games ran decently, as long as I stuck to simple titles or lowered the graphics quality. The main selling point here is the large 6,000mAh battery. Battery life is excellent, but the C12 doesn’t support fast charging.
The C12 has a 2-megapixel monochrome camera and a 2-megapixel macro camera, in addition to the main 13-megapixel primary camera. There’s a 5-megapixel selfie camera. Image quality was strictly average when shooting during the day and quite poor in low light.
