Talking of performance, the phone is powered by the new MediaTek Helio G70 SoC (12nm) with HyperEngine technology. It is an octa-core processor (2 × 2.0 GHz Cortex-A75 & 6 × 1.7 GHz Cortex-A55) complemented with Mali G52 GPU. This seems like an amazing chipset selection for a budget device like the Realme C3.
As for the memory, the base variant of the Realme C3 comes with a 3GB/32GB setup, and the higher-end one comes with a 4GB/64GB. Interestingly, the phone operates on the new Realme UI 1.0 based on Android 10 instead of ColorOS from its parent company OPPO.
