Shortly after Xiaomi launched the Redmi 7 and 7 in India, it is now Realme’s turn to display their offering. The Realme 3 has finally been launched in India and priced extremely competitively at Rs 8,999. The Realme 3 comes with features that aren’t really familiar in the sub Rs 10K price bracket such as a MediaTek Helio P70 SoC and ColorOS 6 that’s based on Android 9.0 Pie. Other notable features of this handset include a dual rear camera setup, a single selfie camera, a waterdrop notch and lastly it is kept juiced up by a 4230mAh battery.
The Realme 3 comes with a 6.2-inch screen that boasts an HD+ resolution which translates to 720 x 1520 pixels. The highlighted feature found here is the 12nm MediaTek Helio P70 SoC and it has been paired with either 3GB or 4GB of RAM. Storage options include 32GB that’s paired with 3GB and 64GB that’s accompanied on the 4GB variant. Also, one can add an additional 256GB by way of a microSD card. Another highlighted feature found here is the inclusion of ColorOS 6 that’s based on Android 9.0 Pie which has a stock UI feel to it. The Realme 3 comes with a dual camera configuration with the primary sensor being rated at 13MP and the secondary sensor which is 2MP is used for depth effects. For selfies, the handset makes use of a 13MP sensor.
Elaborating on the optics, Realme has added some nifty tricks such as a Nightscape mode which adds a long exposure to get in more light to get better quality shots in low light environments. The other camera feature that’s worth mentioning is called Chroma Boost which improves the overall dynamic range of the image.
The Realme3 features a 4230mAh battery that should be sufficient to survive an entire day’s worth of use.
Lastly, the Realme 3 is priced in India at Rs 8,999 for the 3GB/32GB variant and Rs 10,999 for the 4GB/64GB version. The handset will go on sale on March 12 at 12 pm on Flipkart....
