A month ago Realme unveiled Realme 5 series in India and announced that it will launch a smartphone with 64MP Quad rear camera setup i.e. Realme XT around Diwali since then speculations went rife about the possible launch date.
Now the company has revealed it will launch Realme XT on 13th September in New Delhi, this is pretty early if you ask me as Realme X was launched not a long ago, nonetheless the Realme XT will the first phone in India to launch with 64MP sensor, Redmi Note 8 Pro holds the first for global launch. There’s already a teaser page on the Flipkart which clearly states that the device will be Flipkart Exclusive.
Realme XT design & specifications are already known it was leaked on Weibo last week and given to some content creators, the leaked specs revealed that it isn’t the flagship device as many rumours were pointing out.
As for the design, there’s a waterdrop notch upfront with minimal side bezels and a little chin, well if this design looks familiar to you? Realme 5 Pro has the same design, which is sad as a lot of people (including us) expected it to feature a full-screen notch-less display, a pop-up camera front camera anyways there’s an in-display fingerprint sensor like the Realme X.
On to back, there’s vertically arranged Quad rear camera with LED flash and realme branding at the bottom left, though this time the back is made up of glass, not polycarbonate (Plastic) which is a welcome change. Moreover, Realme XT, unlike the Realme X, doesn’t feature a pop-up selfie camera so Realme XT is basically Realme 5 Pro with an AMOLED screen, 64MP camera & Glass back.
Coming to specs, The Realme XT features a 6.4 inch FullHD+ AMOLED display with a waterdrop notch. Under the hood, it is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 712 with Adreno 616 GPU, coupled with 4/6/8GB RAM & 64/128GB internal storage with UFS 2.1 support. Runs on ColorOS 6 on top of Android 9 Pie.
The cameras, the device has a Quad rear camera setup, a primary 64MP Samsung ISOCELL Bright GW1 sensor with f/1.8 aperture, a secondary 8MP wide-angle lens with f/2.25 aperture, a 2MP macro lens with f/2.0 and finally 2MP depth sensor with f/2.0 aperture as well. On the front, it has a 16MP selfie camera.
There’s a 400mAh battery with VOOC 3.0 support, there are two new colours – Pearl Blue, Silver Wing White. We expect the pricing of the Realme XT to be more or less similar to Realme 5 Pro. Stay tuned as cover the launch of Realme XT which is next week.
