The machine itself is the most recent launch from Realme, which is an Oppo spin-off — like OnePlus — targeted on entry-level markets. (In actual fact, the X is principally a extra superior variant of Oppo’s F11 Professional.) We’re a mid-range, dual-SIM Android telephone with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 chipset, a 6.53-inch FHD+ (2,340 x 1,080) AMOLED display screen, in-display fingerprint reader (apparently with a more recent, bigger sensor), twin rear cameras plus the aforementioned pop-up entrance digital camera. Its 3,765mAh battery additionally helps Oppo’s 20W VOOC 3.zero quick charging tech, which fits as much as 55 p.c in simply 30 minutes, plus it has higher thermal efficiency than its high-voltage counterparts.
Realme did not low-cost out on the cameras, both. The 16-megapixel f/2.zero selfie digital camera makes use of the identical Sony IMX471 sensor because the OnePlus 7 collection, which is nice information given my expertise with the 7 Professional. The twin rear cameras are in reality an identical to those on the OnePlus 7, that includes a 48-megapixel f/1.7 predominant digital camera (IMX586) and a 5-megapixel f/2.four secondary digital camera. The principle digital camera additionally helps as much as 4K 30fps video or 720p 960fps sluggish movement seize.
That is all fairly good for a bundle that begins from 1,499 yuan or about $220, which gives at the very least 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage; and it maxes out at 1,799 yuan or about $260 with 8GB of RAM plus 128GB of storage. Nonetheless, these solely are available in blue or white (which additionally look good, for my part); if you would like both the “Garlic” or “Onion” Grasp Editions (with Naoto Fukasawa’s signature printed on the again), you may have so as to add 100 yuan or about $15 on prime of the maxed out mannequin.
Save for the Grasp Editions (arriving later attributable to their particular manufacturing course of), the Realme X will likely be out there in China on Could 20th, and the corporate instructed us that there are plans to deliver this telephone to Europe and the US. Hopefully that features the Garlic and Onion Editions, however regardless, the Realme X would pose a risk to the $400 Pixel 3a when it does head West.
