Not too long ago, Realme made an announcement about the launch of its brand new Narzo series of smartphones. After teasing the Narzo series for a couple of days, the brand revealed that the first two smartphones in the latest lineup would be dubbed the Realme Narzo 10 and the Realme Narzo 10A. Both devices will launch on March 26, 2020. That being said, things have changed quite a lot ever since the announcement. The serious threat that the COVID-19 has imposed on the country has forced the brands to make changes in their plans. Xiaomi had to postpone the sale of its Redmi Note 9 Pro Max smartphone, which was supposed to be available today (March 24, 2020). Realme has now had to follow suit and the first sale of the Realme Narzo 10 and Realme Narzo 10A has been postponed until further notice.
Realme Narzo 10 and Realme Narzo 10A First Sale Postponed Due to Covid-19 Outbreak
Madhav Sheth, Realme CEO, took to Twitter to break the news to the world earlier today. Sheth took to Twitter to inform everyone about the launch date of the Realme Narzo 10 and Narzo 10A smartphones being delayed for obvious reasons. If it’s any consolation, the devices will still launch on the same date, March 26, but the launch will not be live – the company will broadcast a pre-shot video at 12:30PM, Indian local time on the same date.
An official Realme statement said: “The health of each and every member of the Realme family is our number one priority. Keeping the same in mind, we have halted our Make in India manufacturing facility till further government notice, and have executed a Work From Home for all our employees till the situation stabilises into a safe environment.”
Speaking of the specifications of the devices, the Realme Narzo 10 is tipped to feature a 6.5-inch HD+ waterdrop notch display with an aspect ratio of 20:9 and a 1,600 x 720 pixel resolution. The device will likely measure 164.4 x 75 x 9.0 mm and weigh in at 195 grams. The waterdrop notch of the device is expected to sport a 16MP selfie shooter with an f/2.0 aperture. At the back, the Realme Narzo 10 will likely feature a quad rear camera setup, which could likely include a 48MP primary camera with f/1.8 aperture, an 8MP ultra-wide camera, a 2MP macro lens, and a 2MP B&W sensor.
Powering the device will most likely be an octa-core MediaTek Helio G80 processor, which will likely be assisted by 3GB/4GB of RAM and 64GB/128GB of internal storage. As far as the battery of the device is concerned, the rumor mill suggests that the Realme Narzo 10 will feature a 5,000mAh battery, which will have up to 18W of fast charging support. On the software side of things, the Realme Narzo 10 will likely ship with Android 10 OS out of the box with the company’s in-house Realme UI baked atop.
