The Realme “C” series got a new member today in the Indian market – Realme C51. As the name suggests, this is a more affordable phone than the Realme C53, launched in India in July at ₹9,999. The design language remains identical, with the only visual difference being the new “Mint Green” color option for the C51. There are similarities in the specifications, too.

Realme C51

Realme C51 comes with a two-tone design on the back. The sides are flat, and there is a side-mounted fingerprint scanner. A USB Type-C port, a 3.5mm headphone jack, and the speaker grill are on the bottom. The phone is 7.99mm thick and weighs 186g, the same as the Realme C53.

The chipset is the same – UNISOC T612. This is a 12 nm-based chip with an octa-core CPU clocked at 1.82GHz. There is 4GB LPDDR4X RAM and 64GB or 128GB internal storage, which is expandable via a microSD card of up to 2TB.

The display is a 6.74-inch 90Hz LCD with 560 nits peak brightness and a dewdrop notch for the selfie camera. The phone also has the “Mini Capsule” feature inspired by the “Dynamic Island” on iPhones.

The battery size is 5,000mAh, and while the Realme C53 supports 18W charging, the Realme C51 supports 33W charging. The 33W adapter is provided in the box.

Speaking of cameras, Realme C51 has a dual camera setup on the rear. The primary camera has a 50MP sensor with an f/1.8 lens, whereas the second camera is for depth information or macro shots (Realme hasn’t revealed anything on the official website). The selfie shooter has a 5MP sensor.

So, the camera setup is downgraded from the Realme C53, which has a 108MP primary rear camera and an 8MP selfie camera.

Finally, Realme C51 runs on Android 13 with “Realme UI T Edition” on top.

The phone comes in two colors – Mint Green and Carbon Black. The base variant with 4GB RAM and 64GB storage is priced at ₹8,999. After the bank offer, the price comes down to ₹8,499. The early-bird sale is on September 4, whereas the normal sale starts on September 11.
