Realme the second most popular smartphone brand in India just launched it’s latest smartphone Realme X. Realme X is the most premium smartphone and was launched in May in the Chinese Market. But as of now, it is available in Indian Market too. With the Realme X, the company tried to give users flagship-level features at the cost of Rs. 20,000. Realme X has some of the premium features as In-Display Fingerprint sensor, Super AMOLED Display, pop-up Selfie camera, and a full-screen view without any notch. These all are at a very affordable price.
We currently have some great choices in the budget of Rs. 20,000 such as Samsung Galaxy M40, Vivo Z1 Pro, and Redmi Note 7 Pro which can be some great competitors for the Realme X. But Realme has covered all the things very well.
Realme X Design
Realme X goes very high in the field of design, even though it looks very premium. This phone is available in Polar White and Space Blue trims, of which we reviewed the former. The phone is a little thick at 9.33mm, but it doesn’t feel too heavy, even at 191g. Realme also launched the two other color variants for Realme X in special Onion and Garlic finishes in China, which will also be available to buy in India but this can take some time which Realme didn’t confirm yet.
Realme X has a large screen of 6.53 inches which is a Full HD+ Super AMOLED display. Which is protected by the fifth-generation Gorilla Glass. Side bezels are very less but the bottom chin is a little bit thick. Realme X has an in-display optical fingerprint sensor from Goodix, which is fast at authenticating your finger, and we had a success rate during our review period.
Realme says the pop-up selfie camera has a life cycle of 200,000 times. So you will not face any issue with the pop-up camera in your whole usage time.
