The Realme C12 is part of the entry-level affordable smartphone lineup by Realme and was launched on March 5, 2020. The phone is very affordable as it only costs Rs. 11,200 ($154), which is cheap considering it has 4G connectivity. It has weak hardware and features like the camera and the processor offer standard performance. The design is also very basic as even the speaker is placed at the back and not at the bottom which is not a convenient place for a loudspeaker. It is made of plastic, both the frame and the back cover. The display features a water-display design with a small chin at the bottom.
