With the Realme C11 launching later today, Realme CEO Madhav Sheth took to Twitter yesterday to hint at the launch of a smartphone with a 121W fast charging support. What Sheth is hinting at is not the C11 that is launching today, but this new device could be coming soon and is expected to launch in India first.

Sheth tweeted 121 lightning bolts, yes, we counted, to indicate the upcoming smartphone’s feature and left people guessing with “...What?” at the end of it. Sheth’s ‘What’ is both for his followers to guess what’s coming next and also a possible take on ‘watt’ for the 121W fast charge support that’s incoming.

There were no more details shared but it is expected that with a specification like this, the soon-to-be-launched smartphone is going to be a Realme flagship.

However, Realme is not the first company to touch the 120 and up domain for fast charging. iQOO has a smartphone that comes with 120W fast charge support, Oppo is about to launch a smartphone with 125W Super Flash Charge tech on July 15 and has teased about it on Twitter as well.

So Realme is not a first in line here, but it’s still something for its fans.

While we wait for more details on this, the Realme C11 is going be launched today in a couple of hours and we know that it is coming with a 6.5-inch HD+ display and a waterdrop-style notch. The C11 is powered by MediaTek’s Helio G35 chipset paired with 2GB of RAM and 32GB of storage that can be expanded up to 256GB via a microSD card.

The Realme C11 has dual cameras, 13MP and 2MP, on the back and a 5MP camera for selfies. It will come with a 5,000mAh battery and be launched in two colours - grey and green. We’ll get you more details once it is launched.
