A new rumor that popped up online earlier this week claimed the Realme X and Realme 3 Pro smartphones will launch in China on May 15. While Realme has officially confirmed plans of selling its smartphones in China, it is yet to confirm exactly when it will be making its formal debut in the world’s largest smartphone market. The company’s first smartphone with a pop-up selfie camera, Realme X has now been spotted in a YouTube review video, hinting at an imminent launch.
Realme X Spotted in a Review Video on YouTube
The Realme X has made an appearance in a video review for the Chuwi Aerobook on the YouTube channel Ben’s Gadget Reviews. In the video, the Realme X can be seen alongside the Aerobook. While we don’t actually see the phone very clearly, it is evident that the device seen in the video is indeed the Realme X. The device has a similar vertically-stacked dual-camera setup and gradient finish as seen in the image uploaded by TENAA on its website recently. No fingerprint sensor is visible on the back of the phone, so we can assume that the Realme X will feature an under-display fingerprint sensor.
According to the smartphone’s TENAA listing, it will come with a 6.5-inch sized display. Some rumors claim the phone will have an AMOLED panel featuring Full HD+ resolution, although this has not been confirmed yet. The display panel will not have any notch or punch-hole, thanks to a motorized pop-up camera mechanism. Apart from the display size, the Realme X TENAA listing had also revealed the presence of a 3680mAh capacity battery under the hood. A recent leak suggested the smartphone may be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 730 chipset under the hood. In terms of imaging, the phone is said to sport a 48MP + 5MP dual-camera setup at the rear.
Realme X Expected to Arrive in India After its Debut in China
The Realme X was certified by the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) earlier this week. Going by the BIS certification, we can expect the mid-range Android smartphone to arrive in the country soon. Since Realme India is yet to begin teasing the launch of the Realme X, we can expect it to debut in India after it goes on sale in China.
Thanks to its impressive hardware specifications, the Realme X is likely to be significantly more expensive than the company’s current flagship offering, the Realme 3 Pro (review). We expect the Realme X to be priced at somewhere around INR 20,000 in India.
