realme Philippines, the two-year consecutive champion according to Canalys and IDC sell-in reports published 2021 & 2022, launches the much-awaited realme C55. Cementing a number of firsts for the realme brand, the realme C55 Stylish Champion was unveiled via interactive livestream, aired simultaneously on Facebook and TikTok.
The realme C55 is the first budget Android smartphone in the country to utilize the Mini Capsule feature, and the first model in the realme C-Series to support a massive 8GB+256GB storage option, alongside a 6.72-inch 90Hz FHD+ screen and 33W SUPERVOOC Charging: a leap from its previous iterations that only had up to 60Hz refresh rate and 18W Quick Charging.
“We’re thrilled to propel the entry-level smartphone experience to greater heights with the realme C55,” says Jane Yan, realme’s new Vice President for Marketing.
“As a budget segment disruptor, this Stylish Champion does not settle for basic—we packed in powerful specs and unique features that are never before seen in the 10k segment. This year, realme is focused on providing our young customers with value: we want them to always get more than what they’re paying for.”
