After unveiling the Realme X3 SuperZoom, Realme has quickly followed up with its companion, the Realme X3. The major difference between two phones is that the X3 misses out the periscope lens — which made its SuperZoom sibling a choice to look out for — instead, it goes for a convenient 12MP telephoto camera.
Then there’s the front shooter, where the X3 packs a slightly downgraded 16MP main sensor paired with 8MP ultrawide shooter cramped inside a pill-shaped cutout. Besides the camera and memory variants, the Realme X3 has no real differences over the SuperZoom one.
Below the pill-shaped cutout is a 6.6-inch FHD+ IPS LCD panel with a 120Hz refresh rate. There’s no in-display fingerprint scanner, which is still placed on the right-hand side. The back, on the other hand, gets a 64MP primary camera that goes alongside an 8MP ultrawide snapper, a 2MP macro lens, and the new 12MP telephoto camera with 2x optical zoom.
While almost all flagships this year have been launching with Snapdragon 865 chipset, the X3 packs last year’s Snapdragon 855+ paired with 6GB or 8GB of RAM and 128GB of UFS 3.0 storage. Out of the box, you have Android 10 running with Realme UI on top. Powering the phone is a 4,200mAh battery that supports 30W fast charging.
The Realme X3 starts at a price of INR 24,999 for the 6GB/128GB variant in India, while for the 8GB/128GB you’ll have to pay INR 25,999. The phone will be available in blue and white colors and will head to sale on June 30 through Flipkart and Realme’s official website with the retail launch to follow soon. Pre-orders from Flipkart will begin from June 25. As for Nepal, the phone’s price can be anywhere around Rs. 47,000 to Rs. 50,000.
