realme X: Embracing speed and power
Built on Qualcomm’s 10nm Snapdragon 710 processor, realme X employs the Kryo eight-core architecture, achieving a clock speed of up to 2.2GHz. The Adreno 616 GPU guarantees real visual sense and more efficient and advanced 3D image rendering. The Snapdragon X15 modem helps download files faster and gives a significant boost to its Wi-Fi coverage capacity.
The 14-bit Qualcomm Spectra 250 ISP supports still-image capture of up to 32MP and video capture in Ultra HD 4K. It also ensures motion-compensated temporal filtering and accelerated electronic image stabilization while making sure that there is no shutter lag.
The LPDDR4X enables a 15% performance boost at 17% less power consumption while minimizing the size of the storage device; this translates into an excellent cost-performance ratio. It also features UFS 2.1, the current cutting-edge of ROM technology, to offers lightning-fast speed and 35% less power consumption than the traditional EMMC solution. As a result of these innovative technologies, realme X ensures smoother device usage and casual switching between apps, regardless of how many apps are running at the same time.
realme X also features game space and game assistant for a smoother gaming experience. while game space stores all the games in one place, making it easily accessible to users, game assistant allows them to take quick snapshots and screen recording during the gameplay while ensuring less distraction from incoming calls, SMS, etc.
The powerful engines – Hyperboost 2.0 and Game Boost 2.0 – perform real-time prediction of the phone’s status and efficiently allocate relevant resources, thus avoiding any possible lag. This significantly reduces the stutter and thus delivers better gaming experience to users.
realme X: Super-narrow black bezel, super-high screen-to-body ratio, and notch-less fullscreen
realme X offers a more immersive viewing experience to users with the help of a precise glue dispensing technology. The Corning Gorilla Glass 5 makes the 6.53-inch screen more durable and offers more viewing clarity to users when it comes to watching videos and browsing pictures.
The brand has also leveraged its elevating camera and light-sensing fingerprint screen unlocking technology, which are the real reasons behind realme X’s high screen-to-body ratio of 91.2% and a fullscreen ratio of 19.5:9.
realme X: Light-sensing in-display fingerprint sensor
realme X comes with the latest Goodix optical fingerprint sensor, giving it a 44% larger unit pixel size despite having the same pixel quantity. This technology increases the total pixel size from 5um to 7.2um – an expansion in the dynamic recognition range of the screen by 30% that enables users to enjoy a superfast fingerprint experience.
realme X: VOOC 3.0 Flash Charge and one-of-a-kind AI freezer technology
The AI freezer technology used in realme X senses and freezes apps, thus ensuring automatic power-saving to maximize battery life. With the latest 20W VOOC 3.0 flash charge, while the QC 4.0 fast charge only supports 18W, the device can bring a near-empty battery back to life in a flash. Moreover, it cools down the phone by significantly reducing the heat generated during high-intensity usage.
realme X: Facilitating a High-end Photography Performance
realme X’s 16MP pop-up super selfie camera comes with an f/2.0 aperture and Sony IMX471 image sensor, with a built-in Quad Bayer four-in-one pixel binning technology that increases a single pixel to 2.0μm. This ensures great selfie quality in low lighting and better skin tone restoration of pictures taken at night.
It also features a pulse motor that reduces the elevating process to just 0.74s, ranking it amongst the industry leaders in terms of camera response. Sensor integrations are made to detect falls and other accidents, thus ensuring that the super selfie camera auto slides back in to prevent damage.
realme X’s dual rear camera setup at the back is designed on Sony’s flagship image sensor IMX586 with a 48MP pixel resolution to deliver a resolving power never seen before in the category. The 1/2.0-inch sensor, combined with an f/1.7 aperture, naturally ensures higher light feed and much better imaging quality. With the Quad Bayer four-in-one pixel binning technology forming a 1.6um pixel resolution, realme X delivers better camera performance even in dim lighting and with higher photo sensibility.
The super Chroma Boost mode ensures better imaging effect and more options of colours and styles. The AI engine allows realme X to recognize the scene data and images, and uses its unique human visual model to restore the real details, brightness, and colour in the eyes of people, and touch them up properly. The pixel-level colour mapping algorithm is then used to shape clearer, high-quality images.
Catering to the increasing demand of group selfies with beauty mode differences between different genders, realme X has introduced a group selfie mode that supports group beauty for up to four people simultaneously. Different 3D and touchup templates automatically resonate with males and females, offering a more suitable makeup effect.
realme X also leverages the most advanced version of Nightscape, a night scene algorithm that further optimizes pictures taken in the night mode while giving it a brighter and more natural skin tone. This feature effectively controls the exposure of highlighted parts and offers detailed pictures even in extreme weak lighting conditions.
The creative combination of AI technology and the multi-frame engine technology in realme X achieves noise reduction, handheld anti-shake, highlight suppression, and dynamic range improvement. This enables the user to take stunning night view pictures whose brightness and details are beyond human eye visibility.
realme X: Dolby Atmos for a premier entertainment experience
With support for Dolby Atmos immersive audio, realme X will transform your mobile entertainment experience. A leap forward from surround sound, Dolby Atmos delivers breathtaking, moving audio over headphones and built-in speakers that flows above and around you. You’ll feel like you’re inside the action as the sounds of people, places, things, and music come alive with richness and depth.
Also, the device features premium audio settings created by Dolby – cinema mode, game mode, and music mode – for an unparalleled listening experience.
realme X: ColorOS 6.0 on Android 9.0 Pie
The latest ColorOS 6.0 system used in realme X is based on Android 9.0 Pie and adopts a borderless design philosophy to deliver a purer interface. The interface is designed to provide users with all the information that they need more efficiently while improving the overall visual quality and make it more appealing.
realme 3i: Born distinctive with a redefined design
The intelligent use of 3D diamond colours in realme 3i’s 2D premium body gives it an aesthetic and smudge-free look from the back. It also has a transparent matte UV surface and pearl powder creatively at the back surface that perfectly resonates with the youths’ pursuit of both personality and taste. The device will come in three different colours: Diamond Blue, Diamond Black, and Diamond Red.
Employing a dewdrop display, realme 3i offers an 88.3% screen-to-body ratio and thus provides a better and more immersive visual experience to users. realme has also used Corning Gorilla Glass 3 to increase the level of protection as compared to its previous models.
realme 3i: Created to deliver a best-in-class, power-packed performance
Leveraging a 12nm architecture that delivers performance comparable to 10nm chipsets, Helio P60 brings a significant improvement in realme 3i by making sure that the power consumption drops by 15%, thus resulting in better performance and user experience.
The CorePilot 4.0 installed in the realme 3i ensures smooth task scheduling through effective hardware resource management. This enables the device to run smoothly with less power consumption.
realme 3i also comes equipped with a 4230mAh ultra-large battery that makes it superior to other models in this price range. The in-built AI Power Monster also freezes background applications to make sure that energy is allocated primarily to critical tasks.
Coming with a 13MP + 2MP dual rear camera setup, realme 3i also employs an AI self-learning feature that learns the usual edit patterns of the user by itself and helps them in capturing better photographs more quickly. Equipped with advanced features such as multi-frame synergy and the anti-shake algorithm, the Super Nightscape mode significantly helps in capturing detailed and quality pictures even in dim light.
realme 3i comes equipped with an upgraded 13 MP front camera in 5P lenses further blended with a unique SelfiePro algorithm that ensure clearer selfies in terms of color and exposure through 296 facial recognition points.
