Realme is prepping to launch its Realme X in India. The company took it to Twitter to announce that, “The wait is over! Realme X is here. Are you ready to take the leap?” The handset has already been launched in China a couple of months ago.
The Phone Competes With The Redmi K20
The Realme X is the company’s answer to the much-anticipated Redmi K20. Both these handsets feature a motorized pop-up selfie camera to achieve a full-screen design. Speaking of the screen, both the handsets opt for AMOLED panels generally reserved for high-end phones. The Realme X is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 710 chipset. This 10 nm SoC (System on Chip) comprises of two Kryo 360 Gold performance cores and six power efficient Kryo 360 Silver cores. To handle gaming, it is equipped with Adreno 616 GPU.
The Realme X’s 6.5 full HD+ AMOLED display features an in-display fingerprint scanner. The front fingerprint sensor has several advantages such as the ability to unlock the device even when it is placed on a table. Moreover, you get a clean look at the back. On the photography front, the Realme X comes with a dual camera setup on the back. You get a 48 MP primary sensor with a 5 MP depth sensor to keep it company. This module can record 4K video at 30 fps. Forget rid of the shaky hand movement, Realme has baked in EIS (Electronic Image Stabilisation). For selfie aficionados, Realme has thrown in a 16 MP front-facing shooter.
The Realme X is a 4G VoLTE device compatible with Indian bands. It is most likely to pack-in 3,765 mAh battery. For quick charging times, the phone takes advantage of the VOOC 3.0 fast charging technology. On the software side of things, the Realme X runs Android 9.0 Pie with ColorOS 6 on top.
Spider-Man Special Edition Incoming
Based on the device’s pricing in China, the Realme X is expected to costs around Rs 18,000. If true, that would be killer pricing. Much like our lunch, the Realme has Garlic and Onion special editions. Not sure if my Jain friends can purchase this device. Reiterating Realme’s tweet, the company CEO Madhav Sheth further added that the Realme X will also be available in Spider-Man: Far From Home theme variant. On a related note, he has also changed his Twitter name to Madhav X in the anticipation of the launch. I’m hoping that the company doesn’t have plans to launch an XL version anytime soon.
