Realme C35 budget phone was launched in India today, March 7. Realme is pitching this phone as an entry-level option for those looking for a sleek design, large 1080p display, high-res camera, and a massive 5,000mAh battery. In fact, it’s hard to tell that it’s a budget phone without digging deep inside its spec-sheet. The core hardware, as well as the software, choices are interesting. The C35 has a Unisoc T616 chip and runs Realme UI R Edition which is based on Android 11.
