Realme U1 with MediaTek-Helio P70 to launch on November 28
Realme U1, the world's first MediaTek Helio P70-powered smartphone, will launch in India on November 28. The phone has been listed as "India's SelfiePro" and will be sold exclusively via Amazon. Further, the Amazon listing has highlighted some other features of the phone like waterdrop notch display, and "most powerful selfie camera ever". Here's everything about it.
Realme U1 to sport waterdrop notch display
Amazon's listing confirms Realme U1 will sport a waterdrop-like display cut-out which Realme calls "Dewdrop" notch. Recently, the Realme 2 Pro debuted this notch, and thus we can expect to see the same screen on Realme U1. But that's just speculation. To recall, Realme 2 Pro featured a 6.3-inch (1080x2340 pixels) full-HD+ display with 409ppi density, 90.8% screen-to-body ratio and 19.5:9 aspect ratio.
Realme U1 touted to be "India's SelfiePro"
According to the product listing, Realme U1 will pack "the most powerful selfie camera ever". But specifications have not been revealed so far. The listing also highlights several image-enhancing features of the P70 chipset such as high-resolution depth engine, faster multi-frame noise reduction, anti-blooming engine, and accurate AI detection. Further, details about the rear camera also remain unknown as of now.
Here's a look at P70's camera prowess
The P70 chipset supports AI-powered image enhancements such as real-time beautification, scene detection, and improved deep-learning facial detection. It can support a 32MP single camera or a 24MP+16MP dual-camera setup. The chipset also comes with three image signal processors (ISPs) for reduced power consumption.
Under the hood
Realme U1 will debut the latest Meditek Helio P70 processor. However, other specifications are currently not known. To recall, the P70 chipset was launched last month. It is based on TSMC's 12nm FinFET process and features a total of eight cores - four ARM Cortex-A73 cores clocked at up to 2.1GHz and four ARM Cortex-A53 cores clocked at up to 2.0GHz.
