Realme 3 Goes Official along with Realme 3 Pro Announcement


Realme has finally unveiled its marvelous piece of technology – the Realme 3 along with its Pro variant. The mid-range phone from Realme is overlayed with a lot of features along with a refresh in hardware and software. Although the company did announce the Realme 3 Pro on stage, the phone will go official in the month of April. The company says that it will compete with the Redmi Note 7 Pro, so one can expect a 48MP camera inside the phone.

The Realme 3 has got a 6.2-inch display with HD+ resolution (720 x 1520 pixels). The tiny waterdrop notch on the phone packs in a 13MP sensor with support for AI Facial Unlock feature. The Gorilla Glass 3 protection covers the front of the phone against scratches.

Under the hood, the phone has got a powerful Helio P70 SoC that is an upgrade from the previous iterations. The Realme U1 has got a similar SoC, but the company promises some notable differences on Realme 3. The not so pixel intensive display will help in pushing more power for day-to-day use as well. The handset is available in 3GB/32GB and 4GB/64GB internal configuration that is expandable via microSD card up to 256GB.

The optics on the phone are decent with a dual rear camera system on the rear. The primary camera sensor on the phone is a 13MP unit with f/1.8 aperture, while the second unit is a 2MP sensor for depth sensing. Features like Nightscape and Chroma Boost will further boost the camera performance on the phone.

Looking into the broad spectrum, the Nightscape works in a similar fashion to the Night Mode on the Pixel 3. The Chroma Boost mode on the other hands uses image stacking to improve the dynamic range, colors and reduce noise.

The Realme 3 Runs on Android 9.0 Pie out of the box with ColorOS 6 on top of it. The battery is massive at 4,230mAh, but there’s no fast charging support. The phone charges at 5V/2A (10W), but we cannot expect for more at this price.

The Realme 2 is available in three different colors – Dynamic Black, Radiant Blue, and standard black. The entry-level model with 3/32GB of configuration costs at INR8,999 ($125/€110), while for INR10,999 ($155/€135) you’ll get 4 GB RAM and 64 GB storage. The first sale will embark on March 12 in noon.
