Realme X3 SuperZoom
The Realme X3 SuperZoom is a new flagship that Realme is releasing on the European market, which can be seen on the company’s website. Unlike other devices such as the Mi 10 from Xiaomi and the OnePlus 8, Realme manages to keep the price relatively low by leaving the latest Snapdragon 865 links and opting for a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855+. Furthermore, the phone also comes with other powerful specifications.
First, there is the 6.6-inch screen that has a resolution of 2400 pixels by 1080 pixels and a high refresh rate of 120 Hz that should provide smoother animations. It is an LCD panel that is further protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5, and in a pill-shaped screen notch you see the double selfie camera. The X3 SuperZoom also has a glass back and a fingerprint scanner on the side.
Realme leaves not only the Snapdragon 865 on the side but also the new Snapdragon 765 in which many other manufacturers do see an alternative. The latter does come with 5G functionality, but it’s less powerful than last year ‘s more affordable Snapdragon 855+. Despite the fact that Realme could bundle that chipset with a 5G modem, the brand chooses not to.
The phone also comes with 12 GB RAM and 256 GB UFS 3.0 storage. Realme also uses LPDDR4x storage and there is a 4200 mAh battery that you can charge with the 30-watt fast charger.
Now we come to another important part that this phone gets its name from the 8 MP periscope camera that provides 5x optical zoom, or a total of 60x ‘Super Zoom‘. It is rather exceptional that a phone in this price range gets such a high-quality telecamera. We saw that earlier with the Honor 30 series that is not available.
In addition to that periscope camera, there is also a 64MP main camera with an f / 1.8 aperture, an 8MP wide-angle camera, and a 2MP macro camera. On the front you will find two cameras with the main sensor a 32 MP selfie camera and an 8 MP wide-angle camera for group selfies.
In addition to the X3 SuperZoom, Realme also comes with the Realme 6i, which is a cheaper version of the Realme 6 that exchanges the 64 MP camera for a 48 MP copy. You can pre-order the Realme X3 SuperZoom as a pre-order in the Realme webshop where it is for sale for 499 euros. You can buy it in the colors Arctic White and Glacier Blue.
