Entry-level phones are usually all about connectivity, so the Realme C21Y is still with the dated but popular micro USB port. It also has a 3.5 mm audio jack. There’s a 5,000 mAh battery inside and the phone supports reverse charging.

Offered in Blue or Black, the Realme C21Y starts from INR8,999, which is about $120. Users can sign up to receive a notification when the phone arrives for sale, which will be on August 30 at noon Indian time.
