Realme C2 starts getting October update, brings in dark mode & Realme Laboratory (Download link inside)

With its innovation and the urgency to fill up its portfolio with new products, Realme has made itself one of the fastest-growing brands, not only in India but across the globe.

Moreover, the brand has made some impact in today’s competitive smartphone market as according to a report by CMR MICI survey, the brand was on the top spot in terms of lowest return rates for any smartphone brand.

In layman terms, lowest return rates are measured by the customer’s first visit to a service center within the first 6 months of purchase, for both online and offline buyers.

Besides, Realme was ahead of major brands like Samsung, OPPO, Vivo, Xiaomi and others in this list which can be related to customer satisfaction.

Realme also does not shy away from pushing out updates for its devices. For example, the OEM is currently pushing the October 2019 security update that brings in quite a handful of new features for the Realme C2.

For specs buff, Realme C2 was unveiled in May 2019 and is powered by MediaTek Helio P22 processor which is paired with 2/3 GB of RAM. It sports a 6.1-inch IPS LCD display. You get an onboard storage capacity of 16/32 GB which is further expandable up to 256 GB via microSD.

Talking about the camera, you get dual 13 MP+2 MP sensors at the back and a single 5 MP shooter in the front. Under the hood, the device has a battery capacity of 4,000 mAh.

Coming back to the latest update for the phone, it carries the version number A.18 and weighs in about 1.97 GB in size. Notably, Realme C2 got its September 2019 security patch at the end of the previous month.
