The newest entry-level phone on the market lands in the Philippines! realme C25 makes its local debut with an SRP of ₱7,490 for the 4/64GB and ₱8,490 for the 4/128GB. However, it’ll become available for only ₱5,990 for the base model during Shopee’s Brand Day Sale starting April 16 at 12 mn, thus giving you a ₱1,500 discount. Additionally, those who’ll purchase on April 18 will get free shipping.
realme C25 earlier debuted in India with a 13MP quad-camera setup. Fortunately for the global model, the main sensor is using a 48MP f1.8 snapper, alongside a 13MP ultrawide and a pair of 2MP for macro and depth. An 8MP snapper governs the selfie camera.
Like most phones today, the C25 is sporting a 6.5″ HD+ IPS LCD. Unlike most phones though, it’s the company’s most durable display yet on an entry-level smartphone (and a first on a realme C device). As a TÜV Rheinland-certified phone, the C25 has undergone several rigorous tests, including daily use tests, extreme environment, and components reliability.

Other than the display, realme C25 is packing a massive 6000mAh battery with an 18W USB-C charger. There’s reverse wired charging if you’re feeling generous. At the core of the device is MediaTek’s Helio G70, alongside 4GB RAM and 64/128GB internal storage. You can expand the storage through the dedicated microSD slot, of course.
realme C25 comes in Water Blue and Water Gray colors and has a fingerprint scanner on the back.
