Realme has been raining its C series smartphones every month it seems. Phones previously had a lifecycle of a year before it got replaced by a successor, but with Realme, they don’t seem to care about it anyway. They have been fish bombing the budget segment with new devices very frequently. Although it isn’t their fault, as they need to keep up with Xiaomi’s Redmi. Followed by this year’s already launched Realme C11, Realme C12 and Realme C15. The company is planning to unveil their next device of the series i.e. the Realme C17 very soon.
