PC maker Acer and smartphone manufacturer Realme recently announced their holiday season tie-up wherein a Realme device will be given away for every purchase of any qualified Acer or Predator gaming laptop until December 31.
For every Acer and Predator device powered by Intel Core i5 and i7, or AMD Ryzen 5 and 7, a Realme C2 2020 and a Realme 5 smartphone is up for grabs.
The Realme C2 2020 is the larger storage counterpart of the previous Realme C2, the successor of Realme’s first budget device in the Philippines which is the Realme C1. The 2020 version come with a 2GB+32GB RAM/ROM configuration than the Realme C2’s 2GB+16GB. The 2GB+32GB variant will be given for free for any qualifying product in the Acer line.
The C2 2020 has a 6.1” display with a 19.5:9 aspect ratio, a dewdrop notch, and an 89.35% screen-to-body ratio. It comes with Gorilla Glass 3 protection, a 13MP+2MP dual rear camera setup, and runs the ColorOS 6.0 version. Powering the entry-level handset is a 12nm Helio P22 octa-core SoC clocking at 2.0GHz and a 4000mAh battery.
For the Predator line, a Realme 5 at 3GB+64GB will be the giveaway. The device was released as a direct competition for the Redmi Note 8 series as their prices fall in the same segment. Priced at P7,990, the smartphone is a sensible upper budget/low midrange device that gave a large boost against the previous Realme 3 which was released in the previous months.
The Realme 5 features a splash resistant plastic body with a 6.5” IPS LCD panel in front. The dewdrop notch makes for the high 82.7% screen-to-body ratio while the screen resolution is kept low at 720p. It runs the ColorOS 6.0 Pie skin with immediate plans to be upgraded soon with the Android 10.
The midranger smartphone is also equipped with an 11nm Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 chip while the shooters are in a quad-cam configuration. One of the most prominent features of the Realme 5 is the beefy 5000mAh battery, which unfortunately, does not come with quick charging.
