Realme's global launch of X, X Lite; debut in China

Realme X Lite with 6.3-inch display, SD710 SoC, 6GB RAM and dual rear cameras launched in China

Realme X will be looking to maintain an aggressive price point despite offering flagship design and specs.

The smartphone comes with the 6th generation in-display fingerprint sensor. The new Realme X is also the first Realme phone that comes with a pop-up camera module. The Realme X has a 3,765 mAh battery and supports VOOC 3.0 fast charging.

The phone also comes in two special editions designed by Naoto Fukasawa, which are inspired by the patterns on onion and garlic peels.

The Realme X Lite begins at 1,199 Yuan (about ₹13,000) for its 4GB/64GB variant. The prices are affordable starting with 1499 yuan ($220) for the 4GB RAM and 64GB model.

Realme X Lite features 6.3-inch Full HD+ display protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5.

Realme X to feature a massive 48 MP rear camera and that too with Sony IMX586 sensor! It's not really a premium flagship high-specced Android phone but the features are nearly premium starting with the 6.53-inch OLED screen with 1080p resolution and 19.5:9 aspect ratio, Snapdragon 710 chipset, 48MP Sony IMX586 sensor, 16MP pop-up selfie camera, on-screen fingerprint scanner, 3765mAh battery with VOOC 3.0 fast charging tech, and a headphone jack. As rumors suggested, the OPPO K3 will be coming with the pop-up camera and a notch-less display. The top-end model with 8GB RAM and 128GB storage will retail for 1,499 Yuan (Rs 15,500 approx) in China. The fingerprint sensor is placed at the back panel. With bloatware colorOS 6 over Android 9 Pie, it has Dolby Atmos feature and supports VOOC 3.0 charging for its 20W 3765mAh battery.

In the camera department, the Realme X Youth Edition comes with a dual rear camera setup with a 16-megapixel Sony IMX519 sensor with f/1.7 aperture and a secondary 5-megapixel sensor.

"Realme X also supports Nightscape based on RAW format and Chroma Boost modes, for images with greater depth and vitality", the company said in a statement. The phone comes in Nitrogen blue and Electro-optic Violet color options. The sales will starts along with the Realme X on May 20. Bokeh effect created by Realme X's software algorithms seems very natural.

Realme has been making strides of late in making their presence known in the smartphone industry - the recent launch of the Realme 3 was met with decent fanfare.
