Realme 3 Specifications, Battling With Xiaomi Redmi Note 7
The Realme 3 comes with a 6.2-inch HD+ display and is powered by a MediaTek Helio P70 SoC with 3GB/4GB RAM and 32GB/64GB of internal storage. It also has a microSD card slot for further expansion of storage (up to 256GB). The phone has a 13MP+2MP dual rear camera setup and a 13MP front camera. It runs Android 9 Pie-based ColorOS 6.0, which is claimed to be a vast improvement over the previous version. The Realme 3 has software enhancements aimed at the camera performance such as Chroma Boost and Nightscape that improve the low-light capturing capabilities. A 4,230mAh battery backs the smartphone.
At its price, the Realme 3 has a direct competition with Xiaomi’s recently launched Redmi Note 7 smartphone. Both the phones offer great value for money to the consumers. Since its inception, Realme faced direct competition from Xiaomi, and the brand has been quite vocal about it too. Both Xiaomi and Realme are not alone in the segment as other OEMs like Honor and ASUS have been active in the field as well. Xiaomi recently reduced the price of its Mi A2 smartphone, which puts another Xiaomi phone in competition with the Realme 3. It would be interesting to see how Realme 3 performs in terms of sales and if it manages to crease out the stiff competition with the Redmi Note 7.
