It boasts of a tall 6.2-inch HD+ display and is priced reasonably at Rs. 6,999. The phone will directly compete against Xiaomi Redmi 6A in this price segment.

For individuals looking out for a smart phone with large display, bigger battery and premium chipset but at not so expensive price tag, here’s a phone that boasts of it all. Realme C1 notably gets a 4,230mAh battery, Snapdragon 450 SoC, and a display notch reminiscent of iPhone X and newer models.
