Realme Dizo Star 500 specs
The Dizo Star 500 is clearly the more up-market version among the two and comes with a 2.8-inch color display which however is not touchscreen enabled. There is 32 MB of RAM onboard, as is 32 MB of native storage, the latter being expandable to 64 GB via microSD cards. There is a 0.3 MP VGA camera on the rear as well, complete with an LED flash. A 1900 mAh battery keeps things going.
Another positive with the phone is its support for several Indian regional languages. Those include Hindi, Tamil, Gujrati, Telegu, Kannada, and so on. The phone otherwise sports a block design with curved edges that makes it easy to hold and operate. Beneath the display lies the T9 keypad for operating the phone.
