Realme has unveiled two new phones today, the Realme 6 and Realme 6 Pro. And despite being just 5 months apart, these new phones come with significant upgrades over its predecessors — Realme 5 and Realme 5 Pro — on display, processing power, and fast charging.
Realme 6 Pro
The Realme 6 Pro packs the new Snapdragon 720G chipset which is built on 8nm technology. The octa-core CPU clocks at 2.3GHz with Adreno 618 GPU onboard and either 6GB or 8GB of RAM.
At the front, the phone gets a 6.6-inch LCD display that supports 90Hz refresh rate and FullHD+ resolution. The display also boasts a pill-shaped notch that hosts dual selfie cameras — a 16MP f/2.0 Sony IMX471 sensor and an 8MP ultrawide shooter with 105-degree FoV.
The camera setup at the back is no slouch either — a 64MP camera accompanied by 12MP f/2.5 telephoto lens, an 8MP ultrawide snapper, and a 2MP macro lens. The Realme 6 Pro also supports UIS and UIS Max Video Stabilization.
Inside, the battery sits at 4,300mAh capacity with 30W fast charging out of the box.
The Realme 6 Pro is available for INR 16,999 for the base 6/64GB variant, INR 17,999 for the 6/128GB variant and INR 18,999 for the maxed-out 8/128GB option. The phone’s first sale will start on March 13 in India from Flipkart and Realme.com as well as offline stores.
What sets the Realme 6 apart from the Pro variant is the chipset; it’s the first Realme phone to come with MediaTek G90T SoC. It has an octa-core CPU with two 2.5GHz Cortex-A76 main cores and six 2.0GHz Cortex-A55 power-efficient cores with Mali-G76 MC4 GPU, paired with either 4GB, 6GB, or 8GB RAM.
Unlike the Pro variant, the front has a bit smaller 6.5-inch LCD display with FullHD+ resolution, but it gets the same 90Hz refresh rate. The pill-shaped notch from the Pro variant has been replaced with a teardrop notch that holds a 16MP f/2.0 selfie camera with a significantly large 1/3.1″ sensor.
Coming to the back, there’s four-camera: a 64MP primary one with Samsung ISOCELL Bright GW1 sensor, an 8MP f/2.3 ultrawide sensor, 2MP dedicated macro lens and a 2MP B&W auxiliary shooter for better portrait shots.
The handset has either 64GB or 128GB of UFS 2.1 storage; both expandable via dedicated microSD card.
The inside of the phone gets a similar 4,300mAh battery with a 30W fast charger.
Both phones ships with Android 10 out of the box with Realme UI on top. On the other hand, the Pro variant supports NavIC — India’s own satellite navigation system.
The 4/64GB version of the Realme 6 will go on sale for INR 12,999; whereas the 6/128GB will cost INR 14,999 and the 8/128GB has a price tag of INR 15,999. The phone will go on sale on March 11 at noon Indian time on Flipkart or Realme.com.
