Realme’s “Dynamic Island” Phone is a lot More Popular than we Expected


A while back, Realme announced that it was launching the Realme C55, a seemingly “normal” Android phone. One distinct feature of the device however was its hole-punch camera cutout, which expanded into a larger notification shade very similar to the iPhone 14 Pro’s dynamic island feature. It turns out that the phone was wildly popular especially in India, where it finally went on sale recently.

To be more specific, the Realme C55 sold around 100,000 units within hours of its first sale in India, including the 66,000 pre-orders made for the device, which as it turns out is the highest-ever for a Realme C-series handset.

While Apple’s Dynamic Island has received its fair share of both praise and criticism from a lot of tech enthusiasts online, it seems that the feature has its own league of Android fans, as these new sales figures show.

Realme calls its version of the island the “Mini Capsule,” which turns the phone’s hole punch camera cut-out into a hub for notifications, and other device information. As for other hardware specs, the Realme C55 features with a 6.72-inch display, a 5000 mAh battery, and dual-lens set-up on its rear camera. The phone also ships with a modified version of Android 13.
