The much-awaited Realme X has finally been unveiled at a launch event in Beijing and I know, most of us have been expecting it to be a flagship smartphone - but it really isn't one. The fingerprint sensor is integrated on the display because of the adoption of the latest AMOLED technology.
Unlike the big 4,045 mAh battery unit that powers the Realme 3 Pro, the Realme X draws power from a smaller 3,765 mAh battery unit.
Realme X comes in two attractive gradient colours - blue and white.
The pricing begins from CNY 1499 (approx Dollars 220 / INR 15,000) and goes all the way up to CNY 1899 for the Onion and Garlic editions of the Realme X Naoto Fukasawa collection.
Prices for the handset will start at CNY 1,499 which is about $220 at the current exchange rate, the Realme X Lite will start at CNY 1,199 which is about $175.
The device comes in three variants - 4GB RAM + 64GB internal storage, 6GB RAM + 64GB internal storage, and 6GB RAM + 128GB onboard storage. There's a 48MP camera with Sony IMX586 sensor and for selfies it has a 16MP front camera.
The Realme X Lite uses a 6.3-inch LCD waterdrop display with a resolution of 2340 x 1080. The selfie shooter is a 16-megapixel elevating camera that can apparently be launched in just 0.74 seconds and offers Beauty mode and Portrait mode too. The fingerprint sensor is placed at the back panel. It has 4/6/8GB LPDDRX4 RAM and 128GB internal storage.
In the camera department, the Realme X Youth Edition comes with a dual rear camera setup with a 16-megapixel Sony IMX519 sensor with f/1.7 aperture and a secondary 5-megapixel sensor. The Realme X also supports Dolby surround sound to boost the audio experience.
According to the official introduction, the Realme X Lite comes with 82 vague sigmoid curves which give the phone a rounded feel. CEO of Realme Madhav Sheth today confirmed that the Realme X will be coming soon to India, however, he didn't reveal the exact date.
While the Realme X Lite is already present in India as the Realme 3 Pro, Realme X will be launched soon.
