Realme Q3s Retail Box Leaks Along with Alleged Pricing Ahead of Launch: Here’s How Much it Costs

The Realme Q3s is expected to be launched this week itself, and is tipped to be a premium offering at a competitive price point.


The Realme Q3s has been rumoured to launch this week itself, with an October 19 launch date being floated around. Now, ahead of its imminent launch in China, the retail box of the smartphone has been leaked in what are claimed to be live images of it, along with a price tip. According to tipsters, the Realme Q3s is set to be offered in the company’s signature yellow retail packaging, with the name of the smartphone mentioned in way of the company’s branding on the box. Along with this, the price of the smartphone has also been tipped, suggesting that the device will be a mid-range offering with premium specifications.

Realme Q3s: expected pricing

According to the leak, the smartphone will seemingly be priced at CNY 1,999, which translates to around Rs 23,400 in India. However, it is important to note that the Realme Q series smartphones have so far only been restricted to China, and in India, devices with similar specifications would likely be launched under a different name. As a result, the October 19 launch of the Q3s is likely specific to the Chinese market.

Expected specifications

Nevertheless, the overall feature set of the Realme Q3s may well come to India under a different name. As per leaks so far, the smartphone is reportedly set to run on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G 5G SoC, along with 8GB RAM and 256GB storage — standard fare for the mid-premium segment of smartphones. The smartphone will apparently also feature an LCD display with 144Hz refresh rate, as per the latest leak. Previous leaks have also suggested the presence of 6GB and 12GB RAM variants, as well as 128GB and 512GB storage variants.

The display in question will reportedly feature a full HD+ panel that’s 6.59 inches in size, and bear a drill hole slot for the front camera that’s 16MP in resolution. To the rear, the Q3s is tipped to feature a 48MP triple camera setup, with two 2MP additional camera modules. The device is tipped to run on Android 11, and a 5,000mAh battery should power the setup. The fast charging standard is yet to be tipped. More details should be officially revealed very soon, giving us all of its specifications.
