Realme seem to be gearing up to release a new phone – the Realme C12. After the release of the C11 and C15, it's clear that Realme plans to focus its energy on producing affordable smartphones with bold specs. The Realme C11 comes with a 5,000mAh battery and the Realme C15 comes with a 6,000mAh battery.

It seems likely that the Realme C12 will sit inbetween the C11 and C15, but there's very little concrete information currently available. We have heard that the Realme C12 will use a 6,000mAh battery, like the C15. However, there's few other details at this stage.

As reported by GSMArena, there have been signs that the Realme C12 will be released soon, as this upcoming smartphone has appeared on multiple certifications with the model number RMX2189. These certifications come from Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia and China, which are all significant markets for previous Realme phones. It's therefore not surprising that Realme are ramping up to release the Realme C12 in these countries.

Interestingly, while the Realme C12 is set to have a 6,000mAh battery, the C12 will apparently only support charging rates of 5V at 2A. This means that the lightning-fast charging speeds that we're seeing in many modern smartphones won't be seen in the C12. This isn't a huge surprise, as this would likely bump up the price and take the Realme C12 away from its intended role as an affordable smartphone.

We'll have to wait a little longer for any more information on the Realme C12, but it's certainly interesting to see the manufacturer continue to use impressive specs for affordable phones.
