Also, for those who don’t know, Realme C53 is essentially a re-packaged version of the Realme Narzo N53 with some changes in terms of design & specs.
The device sits below the Realme C55, launched a few months ago in India. Let’s take a look at the Design & Specifications of the Realme C53 (Indian variant).
Realme C53 Design
The Realme C53 features a large display up front with little bezels around the display and a huge chin, which is expected as this is an ultra-budget device.
A front-facing camera is placed in a “mini capsule” (Realme calls it). This is Realme’s take on Apple’s Dynamic Island user interface. However, one thing to note is that the front camera is in the notch, not a punch-hole.
As for the back, There’s a circular-shaped dual rear camera setup at the back with LED Flash. The rear panel features a dual-tone finish.
Also, the rear panel has a shiny finish to it around the dual rear cameras; the rest of the portion is a matte finish. Realme branding is in line with the rear cameras.
