- A new smartphone series Realme has just been unveiled by the Oppo subsidiary and its specifications are not bad considering the price that starts at just €110: Let’s see together.
Realme 3 is available in two versions, 3-32 GB and 4-64 GB (135 euro) respectively of RAM and storage space expandable via microSD up to 256 GB; Both models are based on the MediaTek Helio P70 platform that certainly does not make the device a very large performance jump compared to the predecessors Realme 1 and Realme 2 animated by the SoC Helio P60 and Snapdragon 450. The LCD screen is 6.2 inches with the anachronistic resolution 720 x 1520, crowned at the top by a drop notch identical to that of OnePlus 6Twhile at the bottom by a fairly small frame when considering the price range. The ROM chosen by Realme is always the Color OS, now arrived at version 6 which is based on Android 9 Pie.
On the back, there are main 13 MP with aperture f / 1.8 and secondary 2MP dedicated to the detection of depth. The company has also added night mode and chroma boost in the hope of improving the photographic experience that almost certainly will not be too high. Returning to the front side, the small notch contains a single 13 MP sensor that supports the “AI” face release; this can be used as an alternative to the classic capacitive fingerprint reader on the back.
The highlight of the smartphone, however, is hidden inside: a battery of 4230 mAh capacity that given the low-level technical specifications should guarantee good spirits. Too bad that Realme 3 does not support any type of quick charge, but at least the included charger is 10 Watts and not 5.
Finally, a sore point, namely the fact that Helio P70 is reserved for the version intended for the market: in fact, the less powerful Helio P60 will replace the previous SoC on the international version of the smartphone. Realme 3 will be on sale from 12 March.
