Physical Attributes of Realme C53

The mid-range smartphone has a glass front, plastic frame, and plastic back. You will notice the dominant front display with a button-hole that houses the front-facing lens. The ergonomic design, curved edges and aesthetics on the handset make it appear and feel premium. Weighing 189g and measuring 167.3 x 76.7 x 7.5 mm, Realme C53 is both relatively featherlight and slim, making it a darling to users who love them light and thin. Realme is keeping the tradition of churning thin and light devices to the market, as confirmed with the C53 Model. The handset comes in TWO unique colour variants of Champion Gold and Mighty Black for you to choose from.


Featuring a large 6.74-inch waterdrop screen, Realme C53 does not disappoint regarding phone display. The IPS LCD suits media consumption, games, and general use. With 1080 x 2400 pixels, 20:9 ratio (~390 ppi density) resolution and 90Hz refresh rate, you will enjoy a good experience using your C53 phone.

Camera Set-up

The front and rear cameras are good and will deliver exemplary service. The front camera is 8 MP (wide), which is basic but functional. You will be able to video chat and take photos. The primary camera at the back features 50 MP, f/1.8, (wide), PDAF and 2 MP (depth) lenses, which capture high-quality pictures and 1080p@30 videos.

The Operating and Processing Units

Realme C53 runs the Android 13 Operating System platform, complemented with Realme UI T for customization. It relies on a Unisoc Tiger T612 (12 nm) chipset for background operations, supported by an efficient Octa-core (2×1.8 GHz Cortex-A75 & 6×1.8 GHz Cortex-A55) CPU and Mali-G57 GPU. The processing unit handles multi-tasking, playing low-setting games and video streaming relatively well without stuttering and lagging.

Network and Communications

Realme C53 is a 4G-enabled handset. It supports 2G, 3G, up to 4G bands, HSPA, and LTE-A network speed. Realme installed a loudspeaker and 3.5mm jack ports for the best communication while using the handset for convenient hands-free handling.  You have Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, dual-band and Bluetooth (5.0, A2DP, LE) options for wireless connectivity. You can use Wi-Fi, USB Type-C 2.0 and NFC for fast data transfer. For accurate positioning and tracking, especially when travelling and out in the wild in an unfamiliar region, use the Global Positioning System (GPS, GLONASS, GALILEO) installed on the device.

The sensors installed on the handset include the following:

  • Fingerprint (side-mounted)
  • Accelerometer
  • Proximity sensor
  • compass

Powering System

Powering the Realme C53 is a Li-Po 5000 mAh, non-removable battery. The massive battery gives at least two days of use if you are an average user. To recharge, use the fast 33W wired charger capable of restoring 1-50% of the battery in 31 minutes. Whether playing games or in a busy Schule that requires intensive phone use, the C53 battery and charging unit are up to the task.
