After launching the pocket-friendly Realme 3 in India last month, Realme has now launched its most impressive budget Android smartphone yet, dubbed Realme 3 Pro. As you can guess by the name of the phone, Realme 3 Pro succeeds last year’s Realme 2 Pro. Just as expected, the Realme 3 Pro is a fantastic smartphone offering quite a few unique features. Here are five main reasons why we are confident that the Realme 3 Pro will easily replicate the success of its predecessor in India.
Best-in-Class Gaming Performance
The Realme 3 Pro is powered by a powerful 10nm Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 octa-core processor with an Adreno 616 GPU. Even though the chipset falls behind the Snapdragon 675 when it comes to CPU performance, its Adreno 616 GPU is superior. This means the Realme 3 Pro is easily the best budget Android smartphone on the market for gaming currently. It is also the first smartphone in the budget segment to support Fortnite out of the box. Apart from the powerful hardware, Realme 3 Pro has Hyper Boost 2.0 to intelligently fine-tune gaming performance.
VOOC Flash Charge 3.0
Realme 3 Pro is the company’s first smartphone to have VOOC Flash Charge 3.0 technology, supporting 20W charging speeds. The company claims the technology can power up the smartphone’s 4045mAh battery to 50% in just 30 minutes. In addition to enabling faster charging speeds, the technology also ensures the battery temperature stays low while charging.
25MP AI Selfie Camera
One of the key highlights of the latest Realme smartphone is its 25MP AI selfie camera. It uses pixel binning technique to achieve a large 1.8um pixel size and is coupled with an f/2.0 aperture. The front camera offers several AI-powered features such as selfie beautification, HDR support, and face unlock. Thanks to the higher megapixel count, the Realme 3 Pro has a clear edge over its rivals when it comes to selfies.
Flagship-Grade Rear Camera
The Realme 3 Pro uses a 16MP Sony IMX519 primary sensor. OnePlus uses the exact same sensor in its flagship OnePlus 6T smartphone. Realme 3 Pro is actually the first budget phone to use the IMX519 sensor. The 1/2.6” type sensor has been coupled with an f/1.7 aperture and is joined by a 5MP resolution secondary sensor with an f/2.4 aperture. Realme 3 Pro comes with quite a few other new cameras features as well. These include Super Nightscape to allow users to capture blur-free handheld shots in low-light, Ultra HD mode that outputs 64MP stills, Speed Shot burst mode, and 960fps Super Slo-mo video capture.
Despite all the major upgrades that the Realme 3 Pro brings to the table, it has been launched at the exact same price point as the Realme 2 Pro. The base variant of the smartphone featuring 4GB RAM and 64GB internal storage is priced at INR 13,990, while the 6GB RAM variant packing 128GB of internal memory costs INR 16,999. With the exception of the Redmi Note 7 Pro, there is no other budget Android smartphone that offers better value for money than the Realme 3 Pro.
