The Realme C17 was spotted on Geekbench 5 with RMX2101 as the model number. A device with this model number was also spotted on a certification website earlier that has indicated that it will be sold as the Realme C17. The Geekbench listing tips some of the key specifications of the smartphone. It indicates that the Realme C17 will be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 460 SoC and get 6GB of RAM onboard. The listing on Geekbench also suggests that the smartphone will run on Android 10 out of the box.
Realme recently launched the Realme C12 and the Realme C15 in the budget segment and priced them at Rs. 8,999 and Rs. 9,999, respectively. The Realme C17 could be positioned above these two smartphones if it follows the same naming scheme. Realme could also launch a lower RAM variant for the Realme C17 than the one that has been spotted to keep the pricing aggressive for this segment. Realme could also plonk in a bigger 6,000mAh battery in the Realme C17 just like it did with the Realme C12 and Realme C15. But that is speculation at this point.
