realme C15 Comes to Kenya for KES 17000


The realme C15 has finally launched in Kenya.

The device has been on a teasing spree over the week, and for good reason.

It costs KES 17000, and with that price, you get some cool features: a 6000 mAh juicer that tops up a quarter way through using an included 18W charging brick, a big screen, USB Type C and plenty of memory for your media and running a couple of apps smoothly.

Here is the spec sheet:

realme has been running operations in Kenya for more than two months now. Over that period, it has brought some very good smartphones, including the affordable C11 and the mid-range realme 6.

At this speed, we are sure the company will keep launching new phones in the market. It is a good strategy that ensures customers have choice. Choice is a good thing because it pushes rivals to up their game, and the customer benefits in the long run.

It will be interesting to see how realme works in the future as it strives to make a name for itself in Kenya, bearing in mind that established players such as brands by Transsion Holdings have been in Kenya for an extended period.

The company, which is big in India, has other products such as wireless earphones for as little as KES 5000. The price is competitive because other companies such as OPPO and Xiaomi are selling the same products for the same price, or under.

As the realme organizes its Kenya house, we hope that its future plans include it bringing realme TVs that are very popular in other markets.
