In March, Chinese smartphone manufacturer realme launched the realme C25. Two months later, the company has now announced a new version of this handset called realme C25s. The new device has a different chipset and camera setup.
The realme C25s has the same design and plastic build as the original realme C25. It sports a 6.5-inch LCD panel with a resolution of 1600 x 720 pixels (HD+), 570 nits peak brightness, 88.7% screen-to-body ratio, and a dewdrop notch.
The phone is powered by a MediaTek Helio G85 SoC instead of Helio G70. This chipset is coupled with 4GB LPDDR4x RAM and 128GB storage.
The device houses a triple camera setup on the back consisting of a 48MP primary shooter, a 2MP monochrome sensor, and a 2MP macro shooter. For comparison, the realme C25 has a 2MP depth sensor instead of monochrome and a 13MP primary sensor on the Indian model. Anyway, the 8MP selfie camera remains the same.
On the connectivity front, the handset supports dual-SIM, 4G, dual-band WiFi, Bluetooth 5.0, and GNSS (GPS, A-GPS, GLONASS, BeiDou). It includes all the essential sensors and ports like an accelerometer, proximity sensor, compass, ambient light sensor, rear-mounted fingerprint sensor, USB Type-C, 3.5mm headphone jack, and a dedicated MicroSD card slot.
As for software, the realme C25s runs realme UI 2.0 based on Android 11. It is backed by a 6,000mAh battery with support for 18W fast charging. Last but not least, the smartphone comes in two colors (Water Blue, Water Grey), measures 164.5 x 75.9 x 9.6mm in dimensions, and weighs 209g.
