The Realme X3 SuperZoom has made its way to the European market, and it’s the first-ever phone from the company to hit Europe before India. The X3 SuperZoom will be heading to Spain and the UK first, so as the company’s recently unveiled products like Realme Watch and the Realme Band.
As the name suggests, the crown jewel of the X3 SuperZoom is its periscope zoom lens, something only expensive flagship devices are getting as of late, like the Oppo Find X2 Pro and the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra. The zoom lens is coupled up with an 8MP sensor and brings 5x zoom alongside the 64MP main shooter. The quad-camera array is completed by an 8MP ultrawide snapper and a 2MP macro lens.
The front of the X3 SuperZoom sports a 6.6-inch FullHD+ screen with 120Hz refresh rate — that’s something useful for buttery smooth animations. The pill-shaped cutout makes room for a 32MP selfie camera and an 8MP ultrawide. While the high refresh rate is a welcome addition, the phone’s LCD panel could well be the reason behind its slightly larger than the usual bottom chin. This also means that the phone has no in-display fingerprint scanner, rather it is embedded in the power button.
Under the helm, we get the Snapdragon 855+ chipset, instead of the Snapdragon 865 seen inside most of the flagships these days. Keeping the lights on is its 4,200mAh battery that charges at 30W through a USB-C port. Realme is also claiming that the phone has “three waterproof layers” in the phone’s shell, albeit with no IP rating.
For pricing, the Realme X3 SuperZoom will come in only one variant — 12GB of RAM and 256GB of storage for €499 (~$550) in Spain. The phone will be available in white and blue color options. Pre-orders have already started from today at realme.com and retail stores, while sales will begin on June 4.
