Coming back to the upcoming device by Realme, a report in droidshout claims that the company could be planning to launch an entry-level smartphone in the country and the upcoming handset will be named Realme A1.
Speaking of the company’s current lineup, Realme C1 is currently the most affordable smartphone by the Chinese brand in the Indian market. And some media reports have suggested that Realme’e upcoming A1 smartphone may be priced lesser than C1. If this is true, then Realme A1 will be cheaper than Rs 7,499, which is the price of Realme C1 in India. However, we still should not expect that the company will comprise the specifications of the device, considering that it has time and again offered powerful internals at affordable prices.
For instance, Realme C1, which is the company’s current entry-level smartphone in India, features a 6.2-inch HD+ IPS LCD display that comes with a notch on top and has an aspect ratio of 19:9. It is powered by a 14nm Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 processor and comes with 2GB RAM and an Adreno 506 GPU. The Android smartphone houses 16GB of internal storage and can hold a microSD card of 256GB. For imaging duties, there are 13MP+2MP dual rear cameras and a 5MP selfie camera. The smartphone packs a 4,230mAh battery.
Coming to the expected specifications of Realme A1, the smartphone will be available in 1GB and 2GB RAM variants that will be clubbed with 16GB and 32GB storage. It will reportedly come with one primary camera and will be powered by either a MediaTek Helio A22 or a Snapdragon 430 processor. However, the specifications of the smartphone are just speculated right now, and there is no word from the company regarding it.
