The internals include an octa-core Mediatek Helio G70 CPU, 3GB RAM and 64GB of storage with microSD card slot.

The realme C3 comes with a triple camera array on the rear which includes a 12MP main sensor with 2MP Portrait sensor and 2MP Macro camera which lets you take shots in focus from just 4cm away.
