Realme X3 launching in India, drops the higher price and the 60x zoom lens
- The Realme X3 is officially coming out on June 30.
- It features some major changes to the camera over the Realme X3 SuperZoom.
- The Realme X3 keeps the other specs exactly the same as the SuperZoom model.
Hot on the heels of the Realme X3 SuperZoom, the Realme X3 without the periscope camera is coming, and it looks to have solid specs that are anchored by a Snapdragon 855 Plus processor.
Camera-wise, the phone has some differences compared to the SuperZoom model that launched last month. The vanilla Realme X3 has a 12MP telephoto camera that is capable of 2x optical zoom. That lens is in place of the 8MP 60x zoom sensor that came on the SuperZoom model.
There are also some tweaks to the selfie cameras. The new Realme X3 features 16MP primary camera and an 8MP ultrawide lens tucked under an oblong cutout.
The other cameras remain unchanged, so there’s still a 64MP primary camera on the back, which is supported by an 8MP ultrawide lens and a 2MP module (along with the 12MP telephoto camera mentioned before).
Aside from the differences to the primary and selfie cameras, everything else about the Realme X3 is identical to the Realme X3 SuperZoom. That means it comes with the same 6.6-inch FHD+ LCD with a 120Hz refresh rate, the aforementioned Snapdragon 855 Plus processor, 6 or 8GB RAM, and 128GB of storage.
The Realme X3 will be available in blue and white. It will start at Rs. 24,999 ($330) for the version with 6GB RAM. The 8GB version jumps to Rs. 25,999 ($343), which is quite a small difference for the extra performance. The device is scheduled to go on sale on Realme’s website and Flipkart June 30, with sales in physical stores to follow.
