Earlier today, we spotted the RMX2101, which is the codename for the upcoming Realme C17, on the Geekbench database. It scores 253 points in the single-core test, while the multi-core score is 1248 points. Additionally, Geekbench listing reveals the presence of a 1.80GHz octa-core processor with the codename bengal, so the upcoming Realme C17 will pack Qualcomm Snapdragon 460 SoC under the hood. Snapdragon 460 on the device will be coupled with 6GB RAM, which is interesting, as this will be the first device under the Realme C series to come with 6GB memory. We are also expecting to see a more affordable 4GB RAM variant of Realme C17.

Realme will release a C series device with Qualcomm Snapdragon SoC after a long gap, the last Realme C series device with Snapdragon SoC, Realme C1, was released about 18 months ago in India. While other specifications of the Realme C17 aren’t known yet, it could be the costliest Realme C series device launched to date.

To recall, the company had launched the Realme C12 and Realme C15 in India last month. These devices feature a 6.5-inch HD+ display with a waterdrop notch and 20:9 aspect ratio. Under-the-hood, these devices sport an entry-level MediaTek Helio G35 SoC coupled with up to 4GB RAM. Another highlight of these devices is the presence of a mammoth 6000mAh battery. In other news, an entry-level OnePlus smartphone, OnePlus Clover, with Qualcomm Snapdragon 460 had appeared on Geekbench last week.
