Realme C25s Overview
The design of the Realme C25s is the same as the original Realme C25. At the back, we get the same textured plastic build, a square-shaped triple camera module, a fingerprint sensor, and a Realme branding on the lower-left inside a vertical stripe.
On the front side of the phone, there is a waterdrop notch for the selfie camera. The chin is a little thicker than the side bezel which is common for a phone of this price range. It comes in two colors: Watery Blue and Watery Grey.
Talking about the display, Realme C25s features a 6.5” HD+ IPS LCD panel with a peak brightness of 570 nits.
It has an aspect ratio of 20:9 and a screen-to-body ratio of 88.7%.
The chipset is the only noticeable upgrade we get with the Realme C25s. The Realme C25 variant had a MediaTek Helio G70 whereas the C25s is equipped with MediaTek Helio G85 SoC.
The Helio G85 is integrated with an ARM Mali-G52 MC2 (up to 1 GHz) GPU and 8 CPU cores – 2 Cortex-A75 Cores (up to 2GHz) and 6 Cortex-A55 (up to 1.8 GHz) cores. The chipset is coupled with 4GB of LPDDR4X RAM and either 64GB or 128GB of internal storage.
Inside the square-shaped camera bump, the phone has three rear cameras comprising a 13MP primary camera, a 2MP macro camera, and a 2MP monochrome camera. The Malaysian variant of C25s has a 48MP primary camera instead.
On the front, inside that tiny waterdrop notch is an 8MP selfie camera with an f/2.0 aperture lens.
For videos, the rear camera can capture up to 1080p 60fps whereas the front camera can capture up to 1080p 30fps.
Battery & OS
Powering the C25s is a 6000mAh battery. The battery can be charged using an 18W fast charger provided with the device.
Furthermore, the phone runs on Realme UI 2.0 based on Android 11 out-of-the-box.
