Realme C1 (2019) Edition Gets RAM and Storage Upgrades

So apparently Realme was also working on a C1 smartphone with higher RAM and storage configurations. The Chinese smartphone maker just officially launched two new variants of this highly successful smartphone offering in India, one with 2GB RAM and 32GB storage and another in 3GB RAM and 32GB storage. The launch almost immediately followed Realme's announcement of the C1's 1 million sales milestone.

For the Realme C1's Php5,990 local pricing and what it offers on the table for Filipino users, and also based on my initial unboxing and impressions of the device, I think it is one of the best value for buck smartphones around. Specs, features, and design wise, it's definitely a steal not to miss especially by smartphone users who are on a tight budget but still want the best in this price range.

However, if I were really to complain something about the Realme C1 smartphone. It would be its RAM and storage size, that's actually what I pointed out in this post where I talked about the five things I really liked about the device and two that not so much. Turns out, I was not the only one in this regard. And thankfully, Realme listened to its customers as what they announced in the video below.

Apart from the new memory and storage options, the rest of the Realme C1 in terms of design and specs, remains the same.
