Highlights
  • Realme C3 price increased by Rs. 500 once again
  • The phone now starts at Rs. 7,999 for the 3GB + 32GB model
  • Realme C3 launched in February at Rs. 6,999

Realme C3 price in India has increased once again and now the phone is being sold for a starting price of Rs. 7,999. After its launch in February, the price for the Realme C3 has been increased for the second time. The first price hike was due to the increase in GST, but the reason for this new price hike has not been stated. The company has not made any official announcement for the change, but the prices have been updated on the Realme website as well as on Flipkart. A Realme spokesperson confirmed that the price hike is related to supply shortage caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, along with the fluctuating Indian Rupee.

The Realme C3 is now priced at Rs. 7,999 for the 3GB RAM and 32GB storage variant and the new pricing can be seen on Flipkart and Realme website. The Realme C3 went from its launch price of Rs. 6,999 to Rs. 7,499, an increase of Rs. 500 for the 3GB + 32GB variant due to the increase in GST. A further increase of Rs. 500 has taken the price for the phone to Rs. 7,999. Further, the 4GB + 64GB variant is now listed at Rs. 8,999. This variant was launched at Rs. 7,999 and just like the base variant, received a Rs. 500 price hike to raise the cost to Rs. 8,499 in April.

The phone is powered by the MediaTek Helio G70 SoC paired with up to 4GB of RAM. It offers up to 64GB of onboard storage that is expandable via microSD card (up to 256GB).

 

In terms of cameras, the Realme C3 features a dual rear camera setup. There is a 12-megapixel main sensor with f/1.8 aperture and a 2-megapixel secondary camera with f/2.4 aperture. Up front, there is a 5-megapixel selfie shooter. The Realme C3 packs a 5,000mAh battery. Connectivity options include 2.4GHz Wi-Fi, USB OTG, Micro-USB port, VoLTE, Bluetooth v5, and GPS/A-GPS.

The recent COVID-19 pandemic has led to a price hike of components and supply shortage since the beginning of 2020. Further, the Indian Rupee rate has been continuously fluctuating. Many smartphone brands have already increased the price of smartphones in 2019 and 2020 but realme hasn't increased the price of our smartphones since H2 2018. The current price hike is also considering the GST impact and the Rupee rate dropping. The industry has witnessed price hikes in this segment and we also have to adjust our price to sustain our business in a healthy way.
