realme Philippines has taken the wraps off the much-awaited realme C55, the first budget Android smartphone in the country to utilize the Mini Capsule, a pill-shaped interactive bar in the selfie camera area.
As of writing, the realme C55’s Mini Capsule comes with three presets: battery and charging status, step tracking, and mobile data usage. Future over-the-air (OTA) updates will add more functionalities to the Mini Capsule.
The realme C55 is also the first model in the C series to support a massive 8GB+256GB storage option, alongside a 6.72-inch 90Hz FHD+ screen and 33W SUPERVOOC charging—a leap from its previous iterations that only had up to 60Hz refresh rate and 18W quick charging.
