The new budget offerings from Realme offer competitive specifications, but the use of microUSB in 2020 just sounds odd.

Chinese smartphone brand Realme has introduced two new budget smartphones under its C-series for Indian consumers. The new Realme C12 and Realme C15 smartphones were officially unveiled today via an online event and are backed by large 6,000mAh batteries. The smartphones also come with square camera modules at the back with the Realme C12 featuring a triple camera setup, while the Realme C15 has four cameras. The handsets also come with a water-drop notch design and rear-mounted fingerprint scanners.
