For its camera system, the realme C21 has a triple camera system on the rear which includes a 13MP wide angle main sensor, a 2MP macro sensor, a 2MP depth sensor, and a 5MP wide angle sensor on the front for selfies and video calls.
“The realme C series met the demands from youths who require a smartphone with long lasting battery, essential camera features and immersive display for their lifestyle. Today, the C series welcomes realme C21 that represents our continuous effort to deliver better inventions and enjoyable experiences at an accessible price point for all Malaysians,” Tiffany Teh, Brand Manager of realme Malaysia.
Connectivity wise, the realme C21 does have Wi-Fi 5, Bluetooth 5.0, and good news, they’ve included the 3.5mm audio jack for those who still prefer to use wired earphones. There’s also the fingerprint sensor on the rear of the device.

According to realme, the battery life can survive 44 hours of phone calls, 94 hours of music playing on Spotify and 21 hours of YouTube video.

Meanwhile, the Super Power Saving Mode enables realme C21 to have more than 2 hours of continuous call at only 5% battery left. Lastly, the device can be your battery life saver as it is equipped with the special OTG reverse charge.
