Xiaomi at the end of summer released the world’s cheapest smartphone with a 50 MP camera. And two at once. First, the company showed the Redmi 10 for $ 179-219, and then the Prime version appeared, starting at $ 170. But now the title of the most affordable model with a 50MP camera has passed to the Realme C25Y.
The novelty is equipped with a 12-nm Unisoc T610 processor with a frequency of up to 1.8 GHz and Mali-G52 graphics. The single-chip system is complemented by 4 GB of LPDDR4x RAM. The drive has a volume of 128 GB, and the battery capacity is 5000 mAh.
The front side of the Realme C25Y has a 6.5” HD + screen with a cutout for an 8MP front camera. The main camera in the new product has a resolution of 50 MP + 2 MP + 2 MP. Compared to the Redmi 10, the ultra-wide-angle module is lacking.
The smartphone received Wi-Fi (2.4 GHz), Bluetooth, Micro-USB, headphone jack, rear biometric sensor and support for 18-watt fast charging. The model is based on the Android 11 operating system.
Although the Realme C25Y has become the world’s cheapest smartphone with a 50 MP camera, it is technically inferior to its competitor. The cost of the new item was $150. This is $40 cheaper than the global version of Redmi 10 with 128 GB of storage and 4 GB of RAM. Sales will begin on September 27th.
Recall that the Xiaomi model is also equipped with a 5000 mAh battery with 18-W charging and an 8-megapixel camera. However, it boasts a 90Hz FHD + display, an 8MP ultra-wide-angle camera, NFC, USB-C, Wi-Fi 5 and a Helio G88 chip.
