Rumors about Realme Narzo 30 series took off as soon as Realme’s CEO posted the sneak peek of the phone. Today, the company has unveiled the Narzo 30 Pro and Narzo 30A, so what do both phones bring?
Realme’s Narzo series has mostly been about powerful chipsets and huge batteries, all in all at a pretty affordable price. And the new Narzo 30 series is no exception.
Out of two, the Narzo 30 Pro stands out here, bringing in a MediaTek Dimensity 800U processor. It’s an octa-core CPU with Mali-G57 MC GPU and 5G+5G dual SIM support. The phone has a 6.5-inch 120Hz LCD screen with FHD+ resolution and a side-mounted fingerprint scanner.
With great power comes a great battery. Since 5G and high refresh rate are both taxing on the battery, the Narzo 30 Pro packs a 5,000mAh cell with 30W charging. Realme claims the phone to charge 100% in about 65 minutes, which is pretty decent given the battery’s size.
While Realme has been pushing boundaries lately to include great cameras on phones, their Narzo lineup has always lagged behind in terms of optics. But still, the phone has a triple-camera setup at the back — a 48MP main sensor with an 8MP ultra-wide unit with 119-degree FoV, and a 2MP macro lens. At the front, we have a 16MP selfie camera inside the punch-hole cutout.
As for the price, the Realme Narzo 30 Pro starts at INR 16,999, which is around NPR 27,230 in Nepal for the 6GB/64GB model. For the 8GB/128GB variant, it goes for a price of INR 19,999 (~NPR 32,000). The phone will be available in Blade Silver and Sword Black color options.
What about the Narzo 30A?
Alongside the Narzo 30 Pro, Realme also pulled the wrap off the Narzo 30A, which is a toned-down version of its counterpart. The crown jewel of this phone, however, is its 6,000mAh battery expected to last for at least 2 days of usage. However, you only get 18W wired charging to charge the behemoth.
The phone has a MediaTek Helio G85 chipset with an octa-core CPU and Mali-G52 MC2 GPU. The front has a similar 6.5-inch screen, but it’s just HD+ resolution and is limited to a 60Hz refresh rate.
There’s a dual-camera at the back that includes a 13MP primary shooter and a 2MP monochrome unit. Selfies are handled by an 8MP selfie camera hidden inside the notch which also enables face-unlock, but the phone has a rear fingerprint scanner which is more than handy.
You’ll have to shell out INR 8,999 for the 3GB/32GB variant of Realme Narzo 30A — that’s about NPR 14,400 in Nepal. As for the price of 4GB/64GB trim, it costs INR 9,999 (~NPR 16,000). The phone has Laser Blue and Laser Black color options.
