Realme launched its Realme X50 Pro 5G smartphone in India on February 24, 2020. The device is a 5G-enabled handset and is powered by the flagship Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 processor. One day after the launch of the Realme X50 Pro 5G, Realme has teased the arrival of its upcoming Realme 6 series of smartphones. The Realme 6 and the Realme 6 Pro smartphones are scheduled to launch on March 5, 2020. Alongside the Realme 6 series, we can expect the company to unveil its first-ever fitness band as well. To make things interesting, Realme has tied the knot with Bollywood actor Salman Khan as the Realme 6 lineup’s brand ambassador. Let’s have a look at what we know about the Realme 6 series of smartphones so far.
Realme 6 Series: Specifications Known So Far
The Chinese smartphone manufacturer has shared some key specifications and features of the Realme 6 series of smartphones. Notably, the Realme 6 duo will flaunt a 64MP quadruple rear camera setup, including the primary sensor, an ultra-wide lens, a telephoto lens, and an ultra-macro lens. The rear camera layout falls in line with the previous Realme smartphones – we can spot a vertically aligned array of four cameras in the top left corner of the device’s rear. The camera module is accompanied by an LED flash.
The front is where things start getting more interesting. While the Realme 6 will feature a single punch-hole camera setup, the Realme 6 Pro will boast a pill-shaped dual punch-hole camera cutout, much like the Realme X50 5G and the Realme X50 Pro 5G. Speaking of the display, the Realme 6 series will come with a 90Hz ‘ultra-smooth’ FHD+ display. At the top, we can see that both the Realme 6 and the Realme 6 Pro will sport a wide earpiece, which could mean that the Realme 6 series of smartphones will likely feature dual stereo speakers. Coming to the battery, the Realme 6 series will sport up to 30W of flash charge. The battery capacity of the devices, however, has not yet been revealed.
As far as the processing is concerned, the company has not given an official statement on the processors, but the Realme 6 smartphone has already been spotted on the Wi-Fi Alliance certification website, where we could observe it utilizing a MediaTek G90 SoC. The Realme 6 Pro, on the other hand, is expected to be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G platform, but this is not confirmed as of now. We would request readers to take this with a slight grain of salt for now.
The pricing of the Realme 6 series is still anyone’s guess as of now, but Realme has already started blind orders for the devices via its official website (India). As part of the blind order offer, one has to pay Rs 1,000 between February 26 and March 4. After the initial deposit, you can pay the balance that is due between the first sale date to March 15, 2020. Note that the product will only be dispatched once the due balance is cleared. If one orders the Realme 6 during the blind order offer, the company will send a pair of Realme Buds 2, while the Realme 6 Pro comes with a Rs 1,000 discount coupon for the Realme Buds Wireless.
Alongside the Realme 6 and the Realme 6 Pro smartphones, the company will also unveil its first-ever fitness band on March 5. In case you are curious to know more about this, you can head to our previous coverage for the same.
