Realme X3, Realme X3 Super Zoom

Realme X3 and X3 SuperZoom Launched With Snapdragon 855+ and 4200mAh Battery

Realme has been giving a real head to head competition to the budget smartphone competitors. It has grown to provide a really balanced priced to performance ratio. Like other Chinese competitors, Realme entered the game of “Flagship Killer” with the introduction of its Realme X lineup. This year we have an upgraded version from the Chinese Company- the Realme X3 and X3 SuperZoom. And they are set to launch in Asian Market. Let’s get into their spec sheet.



Both the phones are fairly similar in their features except for the big change, which as the name suggests, is in camera. So, the whole spec rundown is same for both the devices except for their cameras.

Design & Display

The supposed flagship killer propounds a 6.6inch FHD+ display in a 20:9 aspect ratio. The screen bouquets a pill-shaped cutout which shelters two cameras for selfies. The display supports refresh rate up to 120Hz. Although people would much prefer a 60Hz Amoled panel to a 120Hz LCD, the company is fairly diving into the trends and hype of the bandwagon- and it’s alright. Design wise, the bezels are scaled up to zero (bottom bezel being a little thicker), protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5.

 

Performance

While most of the new phones are going after upgraded Snapdragon 865 and 765G, sporting a mandatory 5G. Realme went on to a right step of featuring Snapdragon 855+ with 7nm+ chipset. It is not only practical but also smart. 5G is just a gimmick as of now, or at least in India. So, paying extra amount of money for the feature of a gimmick sounds not right. Rather, company can patch a non 5G chipset which is less expensive and reduce the overall cost of device. Which Realme did and is quite smart of them.

Talking about performance, Snapdragon 855+ can pretty much offer similar results to that of SD 865 and would be no snag. To not be drag, Realme went to provide 6GB, 8GB and 12GB of RAM. Realme X3 has 6GB/8GB RAM configuration with 128GB/256GB storage, while Realme X3 Zoom has 12GB/256GB configuration. All the RAMs are based on LDDR4X technology while the storage speed is up to UFS 3.0 complimented by Turbo write and Host Performance Booster.

Camera

This is where both the phones differ from each other. Talking about the things they share- the 64MP primary sensor, 8MP ultrawide and 2MP macro lens. Like the rest, the primary lens is supposed to bin your oversampled 64MP photo into normalized 16MP format. The 8MP ultrawide lens offers wider 15.7mm field of view. And the 2MP macro lens lets you capture really close images of macro world.

The difference? Well, the difference is the vanilla X3 features a 12MP telephoto lens with 20X hybrid zoom. Meanwhile, the pro “SuperZoom” X3 flaunts an 8MP periscope lens with whooping 60X hybrid zoom. The periscope lens works by capturing an image and then bouncing off 90 degrees to another lens and hence to the image sensor, thereby, producing a zoomed image.

About the front facing cameras. The pill cutout houses 16MP primary lens with an 8MP ultrawide sensor in Realme X3. While Realme X3 SuperZoom has 32MP primary lens with 8MP ultrawide.

Battery

The phone is powered up by a 4200mAh battery which supports company’s 30W dart fast charging technology. The phone will easily handle your tantrums for a day.

That was a brief phone description. Now let’s do a quick spec rundown, please.
