Among the standout features is the 5000mAh battery, which is claimed to last 30 days on standby or stream 20.8 hours of video. A more mundane use is making 43.9 hours of calls.
The C3 also has a 6.5-inch HD+ mini-drop full-screen display with a triple AI camera.
The rear main camera has a F1.8 large aperture and a large 1.25μm pixel size. The 4 x zoom and 4CM super macro lens allows for the capture of detail.
realme Australia managing director Andy Yang said: “This latest innovation from realme delivers on our promise to continuously cater to the demands of young Aussies and users across the globe.
"We are always looking for ways to arm our customers with premium smartphones at a competitive price, all the while prioritising innovations that fulfill our ‘Dare to Leap’ brand concept. The C3 does exactly this.”
The C3 can be bought from the realme e-store, JB Hi-Fi, Bing Lee, Make it Mine, mobileciti, 5GWORLD, Essential Appliance Rentals, Amazon, Kogan, eBay and Catch.com.
realme was founded in 2018 and has operations in China, India, Southeast Asia, Europe, Russia, Pakistan and Africa.
Though it split off from OPPO, the company is still backed by its parent, with a shared production line, supply chain and ColorOS, a modified version of Android.
OPPO is one of the three brands sold by BBK Electronics, with the others being vivo and OnePlus.
