Oppo’s siblings, Vivo and Realme are eyeing a piece of the cake in Kenya and we’ve recently seen Vivo further bolster its position with the launch of the Vivo Y20.
Not to be left behind, Realme is also introducing two new devices into its Kenyan catalog. These are the Realme C12 and the Realme 7i. These are both budget devices but they pack quite a bit for their prices. Let have a look at the Realme 7i and Realme C12 and their prices in Kenya.
The Realme 7i can be considered a successor to the Realme 6 that was launched back in August. Here are some of the device’s key specs.
- 5000mAh battery
- 64MP AI Quad Camera
- Qualcomm Snapdragon 662 Processor
- 18W Quick Charge
- 90Hz Ultra Smooth Display & a 6.5” Punch-hole Display
These specs put the Realme 7i in the same ballpark as the Oppo A93 and it’ll be interesting to see the sales numbers for these two.
If you’re in the market for something a little more modest, then the Realme C12, should tickle your interest.
The Realme C12 sports a 6.15-inch display with a dewdrop notch that houses the single 5MP selfie shooter.
It is powered by the Mediatek Helio G35 and couples that with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. This is a little crammy but luckily, theres a dedicated SD Card slot for all your heavy storage needs.
Pricing and Availability
These two devices, Realme C12 and Realme 7i have been unveiled in Kenya today, November 10th, and should be available for purchase across major outlets and e-commerce sites.
The Realme C12 should retail at a recommended price of Ksh 14,999 while the Realme 7i should sell for Ksh 24,999.
