Apart from its mainstream midrange lineup realme’s C-series has also been getting a lot of attention lately, thanks to numerous releases from the brand in such a short span of time.

realme C15 is one of the latest to take the spot, coming in hot on the trails of the C11. The device offers some notable upgrades that make it a more attractive deal – a quad-camera setup, and a bigger battery would be a couple of the highlights.

The realme C15 basically looks like the C11 from the front, but the back panel’s design has been changed, but the texture remains the same. It’s less of a smudge magnet, which is a good thing. The device also feels a bit heavier than usual, maybe because of the bigger battery. As expected, the back panel is made of polycarbonate material.
