Realme bombards the Indian smartphone space like no other brand and its efforts can be seen with the latest Realme C15 Qualcomm Edition. The C15 launched a couple of months ago as a feature-rich affordable smartphone running on a MediaTek chip. Now, Realme has introduced the Qualcomm Edition as an additional variant of the same. What’s the difference, you ask? As suggestive it gets, the Qualcomm Edition gets a Snapdragon 460 instead of the original’s MediaTek Helio G35.
The Realme C15 Qualcomm Edition comes in two storage variants. The base variant with 3GB RAM and 32GB storage costs Rs 9,999 whereas the top-end variant with 4GB RAM and 64GB storage comes at a price of Rs 10,999. As part of introductory prices, Realme will sell the base variant at Rs 9,499 and the 4GB RAM variant at a price of Rs 10,499. The MediaTek versions will continue to sell.
