I don’t know about you but Realme thinks a higher refresh rate screen will do wonder in the budget segment. It looks to be the new trend in Realme devices. After the Realme 7i, C17 is also rumored to feature a 90Hz in the budget segment. Let’s check out all the rumors, leaks, specs, and official launch date of Realme C17.

Realme C17 Rumors Roundup

Realme C17 is supposed to be a followup to Realme C15. In terms of the competition, it is comparable to Oppo A53 and the rumored OnePlus Clover.

Design and Display

The main talking point of the device is the 90Hz panel that it houses. At launch, it could become the cheapest phone to have a 90Hz refresh rate. Including a higher refresh rate in an HD+ screen does not sound like the best of the ideas to me and but we will have to wait to see if there is any detail that we are missing here. The display will have a diagonal length of 6.5-inch and there will be a circular cutout on the top left corner of the screen to house the front camera.

The back panel features a sunrise design with the rays originating from the rectangular camera bump. It also features the mount for the physical fingerprint scanner.

Performance and Camera

Realme C17 will be powered by the Snapdragon 460. It is an entry-level chipset from Qualcomm. It is the same processor that is in the Oppo A53. The phone will be available in a single memory configuration – 6GB + 128GB.

Rest of the Specs

Backing up the whole setup is a 5,000mAh battery. It will support 18W quick charge that will fill the device up to 32% in the first 30 minutes.
