Realme, as of last night, has made the Realme XT official, making it the first 64MP camera smartphone in the world. No, there wasn’t any launch event as such to announce the smartphone. Realme just sent the smartphone to media publications and lifted the embargo to publish specifications of the device, which made the device official.
There’s a reason why Realme rushed to make the Realme XT official. As most of you might know, Xiaomi launched the Redmi Note 8 Pro in China today, which, also features a 64MP camera. And it would have been the first 64MP camera smartphone in the world. Well, Realme wanted to take that trophy for itself, which is why the brand rushed to make the Realme XT official last night.
Although the brand has launched the Realme XT, it did not reveal pricing and availability details yet. The specifications, however, are out. The Realme XT is basically the Realme 5 Pro, but with a 64MP rear camera instead of a 48MP unit, and an OLED display instead of an IPS LCD. Let now us check out what the device has to offer.
Realme XT Specifications
The Realme XT features a 6.4-inch Super AMOLED display with Full HD+ resolution. The display features a V-shaped notch at the top and comes with Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection. There is also an in-display fingerprint scanner, making the Realme XT one of the most affordable smartphones to offer one.
The USP of the Realme XT, however, is its quad-camera setup at the rear. It is the first device in the world to feature a 64MP camera. Along with it, there is an 8MP ultrawide camera, 2MP macro camera, and a 2MP depth sensor. The 64MP sensor combines four pixels into one to produce a 16MP final image. The pixel-binning, in theory, should offer improved lowlight image quality. The primary camera can record 4K videos. As for the selfies, the Realme XT comes equipped with a 16MP front-facing camera.
