Realme is a sub-brand which was created by Oppo. It seems to be a brand which caters to the mid-range segment in different parts of the world. However, Realme only started operations in India last year. Since then, the company has launched almost a dozen smartphones in the country. It is also interesting to note that Realme did not even launch in China yet. But now, Realme has decided to start its operations in China too.
The first smartphone from Realme in China is also its most ambitious one yet. This is the Realme X which can be seen as an upper mid-range smartphone from the company. Apart from the specifications, the design of Realme X is also different. Now, it can also be seen as an upgraded version of Realme 3 Pro which was launched recently in India.
Talking about the Realme X, it comes with 6.5-inch full HD+ AMOLED display but it comes without a notch on top. Because you get a pop-up selfie camera on the Realme X instead of Realme 3 Pro’s waterdrop notch. Another change is that Realme X does not have a physical fingerprint sensor. The reason being that it has an in-display optical fingerprint reader.
The device is powered by Snapdragon 710 processor, same as Realme 3 Pro. However, the front camera on Realme X is a 16MP one. On the back, we have a 48MP primary camera with Sony’s IMX 586 sensor as seen on the Realme 3 Pro. Along with that, the dual camera setup has a secondary 5MP depth sensor for portrait mode.
Realme X has a battery capacity of 3765 mAh which also supports VOOC 3.0, again, same as Realme 3 Pro. Realme claims that the device will get charged from 0 to 55% in under 30 minutes. Coming to the price, Realme X starts at the equivalent of just US $220 in China with prices going up to $260 for its top-end variant.
