Realme posted a teaser video for its upcoming smartphone with a pop-up selfie camera in China yesterday. The company has now revealed the name of the smartphone. It will be marketed in China as the Realme X.
Realme’s First Smartphone With a Pop-Up Selfie Camera Will be Called Realme X
The smartphone’s marketing name was confirmed by Realme on its official Weibo page earlier today. Realme’s Weibo page had gone live just about a week back, confirming its plans of entering the world’s largest smartphone market. In addition to the Realme X, the company will also sell the Realme 3 Pro in China. The Realme 3 Pro made its global debut in India earlier this month.
The Realme X, as seen in the teaser video released by the company yesterday, will have a gradient back design and an attractive pop-up selfie camera. In terms of design, the phone is very similar to the rumored OPPO Reno Lite that had shown up on the TENAA website a few weeks back. In addition to the design, the two smartphones are nearly identical when it comes to hardware specifications as well. Even though the complete specs of the Realme X have not been listed on the TENAA yet, the partial specs listed currently are identical to the Reno Lite. So we can expect the rest of the specs to be identical as well, except for some minor differences. Since Realme started off as an OPPO sub-brand, it is not surprising that the company will be launching a rebranded version of the Reno Lite as Realme X in China.
While Realme has started teasing its upcoming smartphone in China, the company is yet to reveal a specific date for its formal debut in the country. It is possible that a date will be confirmed by the company on its Weibo page within the next few days.
