While no major details about the device’s specifications are available, some reports (via My Smart Price) suggest that the so-called Coca-Cola phone is nothing but the rebranded Realme 10 4G phone released in India last year. Last year, Microsoft collaborated with London-based design company Liberty to release the Surface Pro 9 Liberty Special Edition.
However, if the Coca-Cola Phone is a rebranded Realme 10 4G device, we are already very familiar with the specifications. It has a 6.4-inch Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 1080 x 2400 pixels. Powering the phone is the MediaTek Helio G99 SoC with up to 8GB of RAM and 256GB of UFS 2.2 storage. It also packs a dual rear camera setup with a 50MP primary sensor and a 2MP depth sensor. A 16MP selfie camera, and a 5000 mAh battery with 33W fast charging are other notable features.
Pricing details for the Coca-Cola phone are still under wraps, but the Realme 10 4G starts at Rs 13,999 ($172) in India. If this is just a rebranding exercise, it will be interesting to see if the price is similar to the original Realme 10 4G.
