The Next Mid-Range Killer: Say Hello to the Realme X

It will give Xiaomi’s Mi 9 SE a run for its money

Realme marks its official entry to the Chinese market with the unveiling of the Realme X Lite (also known as Realme 3 Pro globally) and the Realme X. While the latter has the same processor as the former, the Realme X offers several key upgrades. First, you get a large 6.53-inch notch-free AMOLED display with an in-display fingerprint scanner, along with 100% NTSC accuracy. Since there’s no notch, the Realme X settles for a pop-up module housing a 16-megapixel Sony IMX471 camera—the same module used on the recently-announced OnePlus 7 and 7 Pro.

Speaking of cameras, you get a 48-megapixel F/1.7 Sony IMX586 primary rear camera that’s accompanied by a 5-megapixel depth sensor. While you get a smaller battery at 3765mAh, you still get VOOC 3.0—this time with USB-C.

Aside from the regular Realme X colors, there’s a special edition version that’s inspired by garlic and onion—weird flex, but that’s how Realme wants to roll.
