realme has always been credited for its audacity to change the rules of the smartphone market, particularly in the entry segment, where it has thrown the gauntlet at the big brothers by packing premium features within affordable limits.

And precisely that is what realme has done this time with its latest debutant in the UAE, C35, which holds yet another testimony to the brand’s pursuit of bringing the best and stylish to users and offering a UX matching the big peers.

C35 is a winner-hand-down when it comes to style. One cannot have any qualm against the company’s claim that it is the most stylish budget phone of 2022. Juxtaposed to the dirhams you have to shell out, C35 is a stylish steal.

At an ultra-thin 8.1mm and a weight of 189g – that is less than an iPhone 13 - C35 is a show stopper. When it comes to aesthetics, the device comes in two dynamic colors - Glowing Black and Glowing Green – and is amply futuristic in looks. This lightest and thinnest phone in the C series comes with a right-angle bezel made of 2D material, the latter a USP compared to the integrated plastic material used by some of its competitors.

Pricewise, C35 is unbeatable for the style it offers and the features it packs, at an affordable price that is starting from Dh629 for the 4+128 GB model.

50MP AI Triple Camera

In line with the trend of increasing deployment of triple camera 50MP sensors worldwide, C35 is right in step to offer a premium feature at a price range below Dh700. This flagship sensor allows blockbuster shots with its 50MP primary lens with a large f/1.8 aperture that can secure more light for clearer pictures that when enlarged do not get pixilated. For long-distance shots, the device has a 4X Max digital zoom, and in addition, there is a super close focus Macro Lens as well. For portraits with beautiful contrasts well captured, there is a B&W lens, while an 8MP Selfie camera makes C35 a worthwhile acquisition. C35 camera also supports filter and HDR functions.

TÜV Rheinland High-Reliability Certification

C35, according to realme, has passed over 300 tests on the quality front with the smartphone brand partnering with the global authority on quality - TÜV Rheinland. For users, this should mean durable quality endorsed by a global body. The TÜV Rheinland Smartphone High-Reliability Certification contains 23 major tests, including 10 Daily Use Test Scenarios conducted over a three-year lifecycle.

Immersive screen experience

C35 screen experience is top-notch and it is the first in the C series to feature an FHD screen at 6.6’’ – at a 90.7 percent ratio for an augmented immersive experience.


With a massive 5000mAh battery, C35 can play 71.56 hours of audio and can be on standby for 39 days, which puts the device in a higher league when it comes to seamless functionality.

The products will also be available for purchase on the e-commerce platform Noon.
