Realme 3 Pro Announced During Realme 3 Event, to Launch in April as a Redmi Note 7 Pro Competitor


Realme finally took the veil off its much-awaited Realme 3 smartphone, yesterday. Although we were expecting to see the brand launching the Realme 3 Pro as well, we only got a new launch date for it. At the launch event, Realme CEO Madhav Sheth revealed that the company would be launching the Realme 3 Pro next month and it will give competition to the Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 Pro. Well, Xiaomi did set some major goals for other OEMs by launching the Note 7 Pro with an impressive set of specs that will be hard to beat. It looks like Realme is more than up for the challenge. Let’s check out more about the upcoming Realme 3 Pro and how it will be pitted against the Redmi Note 7 Pro.

Realme 3 Pro Will Debut In April As Redmi Note 7 Pro Rival

Although Sheth did not reveal any other vital details concerning the upcoming Realme 3 Pro smartphone, except for the launch timeline, we will witness the unveiling of the phone in April 2019. Being touted as the Redmi Note 7 Pro, we can expect the Realme 3 Pro to come with a 48MP sensor on the rear. To recall, in one of his AMAs earlier, Sheth made his stand clear on not integrating a 48MP camera in any Realme phone this year, but Redmi Note 7 Pro seems to have done the trick.

In a video of Sheth that surfaced in January 2019, he said, “For Realme, we are not going to adopt the high megapixel just for the sake of launching it because we believe that camera tuning and software optimization is even more important. We always strive to give our users the best combination of both hardware and software.”

The sheer competition in the Indian smartphone seems to have pushed the Oppo sub-brand to follow the lead set by Xiaomi with its Redmi Note 7 Pro smartphone. At the event, Sheth announced that the Realme 3 Pro would feature a better processor and camera. He also teased that the phone will boast faster speeds.
