The company also revealed the Realme 3 Pro in China as the Realme X Lite, which will have three variants - 4GB+64GB priced at 1199 yuan (~$175), 6GB+64GB for 1299 yuan (~$190), and 6GB+128GB for 1499 yuan (~$220).
Realme is barely a year old but it's already firmly established itself as a major player in India and several other markets. The Realme X comes with a full-screen pop-up camera design and its center position gives it a better self-timer angle.
On the imaging front, the Realme X will pack a dual camera setup on the back, which houses a 48-megapixel primary sensor with an f/1.7 lens and a 5-megapixel secondary sensor with an f/2.4 lens.
The Realme X will be available in China in two different color options - white and peacock blue. The Realme X is basically the OnePlus 7 Pro with OnePlus 7 (kind of) internals.
The first thing that you'll notice about the phone is the full screen display, and there's no notch. It is protected under Gorilla Glass 5 and produces 100% of the colors in the NTSC gamut. However, the Realme X settles with the last year's Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 Mobile Platform featuring Kryo 360 CPU and Adreno 616 GPU. It is available in 2GB / 3GB RAM and 16GB / 32GB internal storage option. All three models come with a microSD card that supports storage expansion up to 256GB. The OLED screen in turn enables another first, as it's the brand's first device with an in-display fingerprint sensor. On the front side, there's a 25-megapixel snapper for taking selfies and video calling.
Realme X looks a lot like the OnePlus 7 Pro with a notch-less display and pop-up selfie camera. Still you get VOOC Flash Charge 3.0, which promises to bring the 3,765mAh unit from flat to 55% in 30 minutes. On the connectivity front, it supports 4G VoLTE, Bluetooth, WiFi, dual-SIM and a micro USB port. The company also launched the Realme X Naoto Fukasawa collection in collaboration with the world's top industrial designer Naoto Fukasawa.
The Realme X has a 10nm Snapdragon 710 chipset paired with 4GB, 6GB or even 8GB of RAM.
Oddly enough there will be a couple of special editions dedicated to cooking with onion and garlic. The base model with 6GB RAM and 64GB is priced at CNY 1,499 (Rs 15,300 approx), while the 6GB+64GB variant will retail at CNY 1,599 (Rs 16,400 approx). It will be available starting May 20th via online stores in China. Let us know what your favourite bit is about the smartphone and stay tuned to TechNave.com for more unboxings and first impressions!
