Chinese smartphone brand Realme will soon be launching a smartphone that will have a notch-less screen and a pop-up selfie camera. And today, Xiaomi revealed a video teasing the phone with a pop-up selfie camera. It seems like the rivalry between Realme and Redmi will escalate in the coming months. Coming back to Realme’s smartphone, the main specifications, storage variant and pricing of the handset have been leaked online. According to the leaks, the ‘Realme X’ will be powered by the Snapdragon 730 SoC, while there might be possibility of another variant – ‘Realme X Pro’ – which will be powered by the Snapdragon 855 SoC.
We also saw that the Realme device with the pop-up selfie camera may come with the model number RMX1901. Certain leaks also suggest that the company might be planning to launch a device with the name of Realme X Lite in China in the coming weeks.
Talking about the current leaked specifications, according to a tweet by @I_Leak_VN, the Chinese smartphone maker might be planning to launch two variants of the upcoming Realme device. The names of the two variants are speculated to be Realme X and Realme X Pro. As mentioned above, the Realme X will reportedly be powered by the Snapdragon 730 SoC and will come with a pop-up selfie camera. There is also the possibility of an in-display fingerprint scanner along with a sixth-generation optical sensing module. Its display will reportedly be protected with a layer of Corning Gorilla Glass 5 and it will support the VOOC 3.0 fast charging.
On the camera front, the device (Realme X) will reportedly have a 48MP main sensor paired with a 5MP depth sensor. But the details about the front camera is currently not known.
Moreover, the leaks claim that the smartphone will come in three RAM and storage variant. The base variant will have 6GB RAM/ 64GB storage and will be priced at CNY 1,599 (approximately Rs 16,500), while the 6GB RAM/ 128GB storage variant will cost CNY 1,799 (approximately Rs 18,500). The top-end variant with the 8GB RAM/ 128GB storage will reportedly hold a price tag of CNY 1,999 (approximately Rs 20,600).
The Pro variant of the Realme X will reportedly be the flagship device from the company allegedly powered by the Snapdragon 855 SoC. But it should be noted that the confirmation of the flagship device from the company hasn’t been made yet so the news about the flagship might not be right. But if it is, then it will go up against the confirmed Redmi flagship smartphone which will be powered by the Snapdragon 855 SoC.
