We have known that the Realme 3i would be launching in India alongside the Realme X on July 15. Despite a few leaks in the past, however, we were not sure what the exact specifications of the phone would be, or what the handset would look like. Now, the phone has officially been shown off in all its glory via a teaser page over on Flipchart. Realme also tweeted a launch poster for the smartphone recently, that confirms the phone to feature the beloved diamond cut rear panel design. Furthermore, Flipkart is running a ‘Smartphone ka Champion’ contest, where participants are challenged to guess the key specifications of the Realme 3i. So far, the contest has helped confirm the battery capacity, the chipset used, and the display size of the smartphone.
Realme 3i Smartphone ka Champion Challenge Confirms The Phone To Feature Helio P60 SoC
The ongoing ‘Smartphone ka Champion’ challenge on Flipkart commenced this morning, and it asks participants to answer trivia pertaining to the ongoing ICC Cricket World Cup along with questions that tease the specifications of the Realme 3i. Via this challenge, it has been confirmed that a MediaTek Helio P60 SoC will power the Realme 3i. This chipset is marginally slower than the Helio P70 found on the Realme 3. Furthermore, we now know that the Realme 3i will feature a large 4230mmAh battery.
At the time of writing, the latest question being asked in the challenge is in regard to the display being used on the Realme 3i. By expertly deciphering the incredibly difficult question, we have concluded that the Realme 3i will feature a 6.22-inch dewdrop display.
As for the prize of winning the Realme 3i Smartphone ka Champion challenge, four winners will receive a Flipkart Electronics gift vouchers worth INR 1,000. The winners of this contest will be announced between July 21 and July 22.
Getting back to the Realme 3i poster that has been released, we now know for a fact that the smartphone will boast a diamond-cut rear panel design. It will be offered in at least two color options – Diamond Red and Diamond Blue. This handset will also bear a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner as well as a dual rear camera setup.

The newly revealed specifications indeed fall in line with a Geekbench listing that was spotted a few days ago. The smartphone in that listing came with 4GB of RAM and ran on Android 9.0 Pie OS. Based on the specifications of the Realme 3 (review), we expect the Realme 3i to be offered in a 3GB RAM + 32GB storage base variant, alongside a higher priced model with a 4GB RAM + 64GB storage setup. The phone will also very likely feature an HD+ resolution display.
Since the Realme 3i is a slightly lower specced derivative of the Realme 3, we expect its price to also be a bit lower. There is a good chance Realme will price its latest offering around INR 7,999 considering the more loaded Realme 3 price starts at INR 8,999.
