Realme X Specifications and Features

The Realme X is a flagship device offering from the company and it blows other phones in the same price tag out of the water. The Realme X is powered by the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 which despite not being of a flagship series is still a very powerful and efficient processor and comes toe to toe with the Snapdragon 845 and 855. With this processor in hand, you can expect zero frame drops in graphic intensive games like PUBG, even on the highest of the settings available. The phone also comes with 8 Gigabytes of RAM as the standard and we feel this is a sweet spot, both for future-proofing as well as continued usage in today’s era.

Easily the best aspect and the attention grabber of the Realme X is the big and vibrant 6.53 inch 1080×2340 display. Not only is the display AMOLED but it is also fully notch-less, and instead puts the front-facing camera in a motorized popup style just like the Redmi K20 Pro and the OnePlus 7 Pro. Other specifications include a base storage variant of 128 Gigabytes and all with a pretty decently sized battery holding a capacity of 3765 mAh. The camera unit is also really impressed with this smartphone. It sports a dual-lens arrangement in the rear including a 48 Megapixel primary shooter and a secondary 5 MP lens used for additional depth sensing. The front camera that comes included in the motorized popup is a 16 Megapixel one which is great for people who rely largely on social media apps that use the front-facing camera.
