After the debut with the SoC Helio G35, Realme C15 could return in an alternative version, this time powered by a Qualcomm chipset. To reveal it is the leaker Mukul Sharma , who however does not reveal which processor will be affected. Despite this, the insider states that the “new” device will be launched in 4/64 GB and 3/32 GB variants, with Power Blue and Power Silver colors.
An important detail comes to us from a previous interview by CEO Madhav Sheth with the 91mobiles portal: the executive, on that occasion, confirmed Realme’s intentions regarding Qualcomm versions of the C11, C12 and C15 models , but only in the face of a request from users. Given the rumors of today, is it reasonable to expect the debut of the devices indicated as well? And what will be the future of the C series? Will we continue with the MediaTek SoCs or will the next smartphones have Qualcomm solutions from their solutions?
